I think you're both right. Jim is saying that the bike is air cooled; what can one expect if no air is flowing over the engine to cool it off while in stop and go traffic.
You're saying that with today's engineering capabilities, adequate temperature control can be designed and installed to prevent overheating.
I think you're both right.
But I also think that the hexheads are already pretty good at engine temperature management. If I were to ask BMW for improvements, this wouldn't make my list.
Definitely superior to the R1100/1150!
