Ive got a Dakota Digital speedo/tach on my Vegas. I do not find that I need any kind of shade to read the thing - its bright enough even in direct sunlight to read it. Mine is wired into the headlight bucket, where there is a black button installed to run through the options menu.
2003 Vegas - straight pipes, Big Sucker air filter kit, black powder coated everything - foot controls, handlebars, clutch and brake housing, fork lowers, luggage rack, wheels, digital speedo with powder coated housing. Relocated key switch, red plug wires. Mustang solo seat. LED ring blinkers in front. Black DEI pipe wrap.
