    Hmmmm... I notice a bit of heat on the right ankle, but not the left. And only when I wear work shoes rather than my riding boots - which cover the ankle 100%. I believe that this is due to the exhaust pipe passing on the opposite side of the frame from my right ankle... No pipe on the left side. Did they add modifications that redirect the air flow?????

    I noticed the same issue on mine the only time I rode wearing shorts.
    And BTW, you are the one to blame for the heat on the right knee :D
