I agree completely. claydbal would argue that the world is flat & the sun comes up in the west.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

The world is flat. Anybody with eyes can see that!

A teacher once told me the world was spinning. I proved her wrong by jumping as high as I could and coming back down in the same spot I jumped from.

So, there!

Why ain't we ridin'?

I think as long as you're talking about roasting on a V-twin or a Wing, may I suggest a real heat generator a Boss Hoss. I'm 5'3" and when they had demo rides of the trikes at Bike Week I had to give it a try, I wish I had Nomex pants on as I did not find it a fun trike.

You have to jump into the spin!

I've learned so much from my mistakes, I'm thinking about making a few more.

ok, i see. yall would rather lie than admit wrong. everyone who has ever ridin a liquid cooled motorcycle has felt the excess heat after stopping in traffic.a cbr1000rr or gxr or r1 will make you want to abandon ship. ther e is a whole cottage industry to provide accessories because of this problem.



for the record, i came here to decide if i wanted to invest time and money to ride a goldwing. the low center of gravity and low seat height combined with storage space had me really considering it.



but there is always that camaraderie thing.............................................

Okay, I'll step in. We know hot here. The cold water that comes out of our faucets is hotter than your average summer temps. That is a fact. So...

...the truth is, when riding my '87 GL1200, in summer, in traffic, I can't tell if the fan comes on. There may be a difference with the sixes, with their dual radiators, but I don't have any real knowledge of them. But, when it's 105 + and you're sitting in traffic, the asphalt under you tires is supplying plenty of heat and the sun bakes you from the other side.

Having a motor that's running over 200 between your legs surely makes things worse, no matter what brand you're riding. But, I really don't think the fan makes it that much hotter.

Now, if you feel my lack of comradery (that's Webster's spelling) is offensive, well...

Why ain't we ridin'?

yeah, i went to public school in louisiana, and spell check must have missed that one.



i guess in 115 degree weather , you dont feel the differential i do at 100. i have had to monitor head temps on bikes on the dyno to keep the engine safe. i have recorded so many both air and liquid cooled and both will , at times, need to be shut down because of overheating. so, theres that.



i knew a guy in prescott arizona, he did tuning in an air conditioned dyno cell.



my whole point of this is that when you tune an air cooled engine towards best performance, you eliminate the built in fail points that have to be there to satisfy epa.



water cooled is designed to maintain a constant temperature to insure the tune stays the same, usually around 220F. a well tuned air cooled will stay around that temp if operated outside the city...........
