Hello from NJ
« on: May 11, 2013, 11:14:22 AM »
One week with the new bike and loving it more each mile!
Coming off FJR and can't say enough about handling and torque
with the SE. Feels like a 400 lb bike! And no heat!

Funny how that works.  Coming off an old bmw RT, I find the Trophy a hotter ride.  More heat on my shins with the radiator and less air circulation for my pits with that barndoor of a windscreen.  I'm thinking about getting a smaller shield for the Summer season.

We have just come thru the end of summer. The heat dump off the motor onto your shins from inside the cowling is fairly high, and the screen/fairing restrictive for airflow. Makes the bike uncomfortable at temperatures in the 35C plus range (about 90F and above for USA and UK). Have to ride in singlet and thongs -  :062:vest and flip flops :745:

Hi there. I am sure you will love the bike. I have done over 4,500 miles now and love every aspect of it. It took me 3 months to feel really comfortable with it but now feel as one when I ride mine.
