do you have option for all the above?

actually traditional pencil and a dial type I spent way too much on for my car racing days.

Most of the electronic ones I have seen were questionable in accuracy, whereas the tried and true cheapo pencil ones seem to be reliable.

Go figure.

Depends on the bike. The digital one is pretty much spot on but it's a bit big for a couple of the bikes and hard to get around the rotors so the tradidtional is used. They both do the same thing

Whatever gauge you have, take it with you on your next trip to Motorcycles Unlimited and have them test it. At least you'll know where it is at.

Another rule of thumb on gauges is the wider the range, the less inherently accurate it is.

In other words, if you need a gauge in the 30-40 range, don't get one that reads 0 to 250. Also, don't get a low range gauge like for drag slicks that tops out at 40-50; they are designed to be very accurate in the low teens and single digits, and give up some on the high end.

Traditional on the truck b/c its in the glove box, and electronic on the bike because it fit in the rim better and in my riding jacket pocket.

Intercomp gauges are what I use. The liquid filled dial gauges they make are spot on right out of the box.

I use all three. I use the dial on the compressor to get an idea of where I'm at. I use the stick to set accurate pressures before I head out on a spirited ride and I use the digital for everything else.
