Best moto tire pressure gauge?

I have a variety of cheap ass junk gauges to try and fit around spokes and brake discs . Seems every wheel on every bike has something different in the way .
My back tells me they are also inaccurate !

What are you folks using?

I ordered this off Amaze-On a few years ago and it's still working. Flexible enough to bend to get to hard to reach valves.  (One a side note - whoever invented right angle valve stems should get a double-Nobel)

I'm using two sizes of el cheapo gauges. One about 2" and another standard size.

At one time I spent $40+ on one like Mr. Crest posted, this was before Amazon, but it broke so I went back to the el cheapo's in the drawer. I've had the same el cheapo's for at least 10-15 years.
Does it really matter if the fat balloon tires are off 2 pounds?

You meet some of the best folks behind bars.

I use a Slime and JACO gauges. The Slime is for bikes with tight storage. My analog JACO ones goes in the top case/side bags. The glow in the dark reading is a nice upgrade. My digital JACO is my tire changer gauge.
All three are spot on.

AutoZone.  About 30 bucks.  As long as the head is offset, and there is a button that clears the gauge to zero, after I pull it off the valve stem to look at it, I'm good.

Those pics are the same gauge. Why it left the small one when I clicked to enlarge who knows.

Ya, for me it’s the dual discs on the front of my 79 SS that
can be hard to get to.  

Almost got that green digital one that whatarush has up.
It’s offset on the end. But the battery thing, I dunno, I just am trying to simplify.  One less thing to figure out when the screen goes blank.
