Hell yeah - the frame rails up around the little bumpy pads under the tank/airbox cover get stupid hot.Originally posted by MRWGLO92
I also OCCASIONALLY ride in shorts (yes I know, I know. Blah blah blah). More so than my ankles, the inside of my knees and legs, specifically the parts that touch the frame, get really hot. Sometimes to the point of actually burning from the heat transfer through the frame. Much more comfortable to wear jeans even though I sweat more. It really is amazing how well they have designed this bike to transfer heat away from the engine.
