I ride year-round in Adelaide's "Mediterranean" climate. Hottest ambient I've seen is 47C/ 116F. Dash temp remained at 106C before dropping as them fans did their stuff. Once moving, coolant temperature drops to the low 90Cs.

I'm a bit ATGATT. In summer I wear a summer-weight jacket and pants (a lot of mesh with armour in the right spots) over my work pants (actually Nike golf pants in black) and a polo shirt. While hot, it's not unbearable. I suspect, however, multiple layers acts as an insulating layer.

You can also look at Ducati's cooldown gear. It is remarkable. I have a full suit, for under leathers in hot weather, and a tee for casual riding. Well worth a look at.

As a rule, however, if the forecast is over 40C/ 105F I'll take the car with its perfectly good aircon.

She's the cute Italian girl from school you wish you kept in contact with...

when the bike is new it sure is Hot but as you rack up the miles it gets better. At 20000k + itís still warm but not a problem anymore

I've noticed the same as posted a while back. Interesting thing though, is the water temp seems about the same, but the radiant heat seems much, much less with lots of miles on it now as compared with new.

Wonder if this has something to do with the CAT breaking in, or something...
