Just kidding around. Everyone has a different style of riding and expectation of their bike.
Yes, unfathomably different syle and expectations I have no use for T mode other than in stop-n-go traffic or a parking lot. The difference in 2nd gear acceleration is cavernous. Maybe some day when I 'grow up,' and maybe stop drinking so much coffee.

Thanks
Got what? All I see is a big blue bike in the way. Is it the white picket fence?

Did you get it fixed?

You're not kidding. The only time I have used T-Mode so far has been in the rain.

I know some folks are noticing it as well but others say they don't feel anything. So much heat comes out I'm really struggling to understand how some folks are stating they don't feel a thing.

I know many folks have had bikes that radiated a lot of heat but coming off a V-Strom, which radiated nothing I could feel, I'm not used to this much discomfort.

I've mocked up a deflector shield and blocked the air coming out the gap so it's a bit better. Is heat an issue for all the 1200cc ADV bikes?

Shut up and ride?

Dave...
I too have a problem with the heat coming off the left side of the bike. Even in 70 degree weather the heat coming off the radiator is enough to bother me while wearing jeans. I've only had the bike since November, so I am concerned that the upcoming Texas summer will only serve to worsen the situation.

You guys need a first generation FJR. The Tenere feels air conditioned compared to some.

I'll never forget the cycle rag comparo. The front page headline read something like...


"Sport-tourers are hot!...literally."

These guys are sounding more and more like the BMW guys, always looking for some farkles to improve the bike but at least the BMW guys have a reason to try to improve


No I will sit back and wait for the fireworks


...Is that one of my REFLECTIVE RADIATION STICKERS on that hat..?

I thought the FJR was hot, then rode a Honda ST1300!!!

On the Super Ten, as long as I don't stick my left knee out, all is cool, Baby.
