Fellas,

I road a couple hundred miles in 90-94 F with 90%+ humidity last week. Yep, there is a little heat coming off the left side between my knee and main zipper. So, I rode with my left leg sticking out a little bit. I did enjoy this heat on a 60F morning a few weeks ago. There's always a little give and take. Speaking of engine heat. I was very impressed with the electric fan(s) on the radiator. My temp gauge hasn't gone above 3-4 bars in hot weather. I haven't sat in traffic very long to see it it will get hotter. Any experience?
