    Sorry, but again, mostly irrelevant. Cooling towers work by evaporative cooling. A vehicle radiator does not. Totally different thermo principles.

    Just my suspicion, but I would have thought that air at a certain temperature with a higher humidity may be able to capture MORE heat than dry air at the the same temp in NON evaporative applications.

    Yep found it. but it's a negligible difference.

    Well in a lab you would see measurable differences it depends on your equipment doesn't it.

    Glad to see all the professors out and about doing peer reviewed science.
    Another thousand posts and we should have the the subject nailed. :lol3

    Anyway, my take at this point is..

    Ride More, Use good oil, Keep the cooling system in top nick, Worry less

    Forecast tomorrow is 95F 90% humidity. 50% rain.

    Now here is my question.
    Will my bike be operating at a higher temp if I get lucky and miss the rain? (90% humidity) Or if I get soaked. (100% humidity?)

    Just messin with ya.

    That was suppose to be dry towers/closed loop. To much fine print and I buggered the numbers reading charts.

    At a given temp that we can live in say up to 100F, 0% to 99% humidity changes the rate by less than 2%.

    So it would not be noticed in any thing less than a lab as Graham pointed out.

    My son was testing the " water bypass" system yesterday. Guess what's on his Christmas wish list? :lol3

    Pluric to the rescue!

    This thread had turned into science weekly. Just kidding guys
    My wife would say that is just one more way to kill yourself:lol3 more fun than a fork or spoon

    Not to get technical and start three pages of responses, but I think you mean Scatology.

    The study of ones bypass. Normally it comes from a closed system that is controlled
    by the bodies thermostat. If you have a faulty system it circulates prematurely and
    causes your ride to end faster than you had planned. Beware of the air bubbles in the
    system as they cannot be trusted to only vent excess system gas.

    Actually, Dallara is not SUPPOSED to be posting right now.
    He is SUPPOSED to be spending time with his loved ones.

    Turn the Mac off Dallara. Grab a bottle and cigar and go sit on the back porch and CHILL.

    Spent all day yesterday and last evening with my son, DIL, and grandkids... And had a *GREAT* time. Out at the beach over in Port A, then time with the grandbabies at the pool, wonderful dinner at "La Playa" over there, etc., etc. Couldn't have been better. :clap

    Unfortunately today my ex-wife has swooped down from her skulking perch and decided to take up most of their day... Since any time she and I occupy the same square kilometer results in sort of a matter/anti-matter collision I decided I'd spare the kids & grandkids the stray high-energy gamma rays rays from that conflagration... :rofl

    But I'll see 'em tonight and tomorrow!!! :D
