    Mako II gaining time while riding motorcycle

    Title says it all. I ride a Cruiser to work daily and noticed that my Mako gains minutes from the house to work (about an hour ride). Anyone else have an issue with this?

    Ha ha. As a daily motorcycle rider I did never notice that.
    Vibrations are perhaps involved ?
    On my japanese 4 cylinders no gain !

    By cruiser I take it its a large displacement v-twin with a lot of vibration. Having a mechanical watch act up while riding such a bike seems predictable. There really are reasons quartz watches were such a leap forward, and situations like this highlight that fact. I never wear any of my mechanical watches when riding off road on my wr450. You might try taking off your watch and putting it in a back pack or something that helps isolate it while you are riding.
    There are only four types of people who notice let alone care what brand of watch you are wearing: Nerds, A**holes, Thieves, and Hookers! No one else even notices if your wearing a Rolex or a Casio.
