Self defrosting mirrors ?
« on: November 03, 2013, 12:10:40 PM »
Found out something neat about my TT, it happened on the way home from work this morning ! I got off working nites at 5:00 am here in Iowa, got out to the parking lot to find my TT freshly laced with a heavy frost...nice look the feathery white on blue ! It was 23 degrees F , she started right up with a touch of the switch and I turned on the grips and seat , to let her warm up a bit, while I slipped my winter riding suit on.  I could not see anything in the mirrors, but could look right over that nice little dip in the windshield. About 2 miles down the road , I looked down as I was about to turn , just out of habit to check the mirrors, and behold ! TOTALLY CLEAR OF FROST ! When I got home, I got to looking and came to the conclusion that through design, the fairing pulls heat from the motor and channels it up to warm and clear the mirrors ! Some smart fellows you have in the design department !

Wow IF it is intentional then that is some design.

That's a pretty good idea. I hope I don't have to take advantage of it very often though.
