properly built and tuned, there is no heat to fry anything. in contrast, every liquid cooled motorcycle will cook your cookies ever time you stop in traffic. you have no argument.

fact is, you cannot properly build and tune a goldwing! so they will always be hot. its by design.

Well, believe whatever you want. My opinion is based on 45 years of riding lots of air-cooled and several water-cooled bikes and I'll take the latter. Just personal preference.
