    Well, I can tell you I’ve only ridden my new bike 4 times so far (6 days of ownership) and my right inner thigh/knee bakes from something over there. I’m in Las Vegas and at any temp above 80 or so I feel the heat. Once below that, though, no issues. As you can imagine, though, with temps in high 90s any extra heat source is gonna get you. The bike is a HP GSA.

    I've not seen anything, but I'd be very cautious about such things. All that head trapped could bake the ESA right there or something else. It might be ok, but I wouldn't be the one to test it. I hope you find something.

    For me personally I've not noticed it. I ride with Sidi Adventure boots and Klim Dakar over-the-boot pants, so maybe I get some residual insulation?

    Just returned from a 1500mile trip around Europe in 35 degree C temps. Had full Richa textiles on and to be honest I couldn’t feel a huge difference from left leg to right leg. When stopped or travelling slowly (<15mph) then you can feel the heat but as soon as your into second and moving it never bothered me one bit.
