    How was the heat????

    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

    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:
