How was the heat????
« on: December 27, 2013, 04:28:08 PM »
Hey all,

I'm currently considering buying a TT up here in NJ.. Concerned about the heat put out from the bike in the warmer weather. Started with an ST1300, endured the heat as long as I could..above 75 F  it was tough.. Switched to a Gen II FJR... Much improved.. 95 F and comfy while moving...My concern is I won't get good info from a demo ride in our current  25F weather .. Can anyone provide good feedback on the ride in the warm weather?   Dan

An old biker must be a good rider

Hi Dan,

The engine heat does not seem to be a problem at all on my Trophy. However, I found the wind protection on the Trophy to be so good that in really hot weather (90+), I wanted additional air deflected inwards towards my body. In another thread I posted information a photos.

I've experienced no excessive heat problems, but I haven't ridden in really warm weather yet.
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

During the summer in North Italy and South of France temperatures were mid 30c /95f and I didn't have any excessive heat issues. Even in traffic the bike temp did not go above 6 of the 8 bars and that was a long period of stop start where I wasn't able to filter.

I had 36C daily for our trip to France & Italy this year and never felt any engine heat. It's just not a problem. The TT's excellent weather protection does necessitate light or mesh gear though.

I have been out riding the last few weeks in 30c plus temperatures, no real issues with heat coming from the bike. Less than my ST1100.  I have been leaving the screen low to get some air around the helmet, but I have found that in really hot weather getting the hot air off you is better on longer rides.  Light gear is a must.

I can keep on reporting on summer riding if you guys really want for the next few months  :821:
