I agree and I live in Texas where it can get pretty darn warm in the summer time.

OTOH, the Super Ténéré is one of the coolest, least heat-intrusive bikes I've ever owned, and that surprised me given it's literally fully-faired and has two pistons the size of coffee cans banging up around in there. Even when we had temps well into the 100's this past summer I found it comfortable, fan on or not. And that's with full ATGATT or just blue jeans... Doesn't matter.

Besides, even if someone finds what little heat blows on their leg when the fan is on uncomfortable, just how long is it on? 30 seconds? How long is the stoplight?

Crikey! It's a motorcycle... Not a limo.

2013 s10!

Just came back from the Dealer here, Blackfoot Motorsports and saw a new 2013 S10 in a matt grey color. Not bad but I think I like my blue better.

I've got a little project for tomorrow!

By the look on your face and the woody I'd say there's a happy ending in there soon. Ewwwww.

I was going to make some big pen!s joke in response, but the fact of the matter is, their is a mighty odd shadow in that picture, of which i didnt previously notice, and I'm going to simply deny your claim to wood, and carry on with my day.

Of course, considering the fact that I'm wearing my work uniform in this shot, I'm now wondering how much of my day to day stuff looks like I've got a raging boner.

I think there was a Seinfeld episode with pants like these.
