    Common sense would seem to indicate wearing a quartz to be the best option but sense of the common variety is a pretty rare commodity in casa Sticky so I’d most likely wear a mechanical and take the risk of it breaking.

    If it's not damaging your wrist, it's not damaging the watch on your wrist. Your body is an excellent shock dampener.

    *edit* Although it probably won't do wonders for timekeeping. That'll stop as soon as you get off the Harley, however.

    Get a smoother motorcycle. And/or wear a G-shock.

    I wore my Rolex DJ for a few years of riding a Yamaha Virago 1100 with no issues.

    Hmm. That is a problem. Quartz for sure. Another solution would be to trade your Harley for my Shadow. Then, you can wear any nice watch you want Lol. I’m not usually this generous, so trade now before my I change my mind

    I've been riding for over 20 years and wearing watches. Never a problem.
