Do you remember when our GPZ was new? Many owners of brand new bikes 
brought this topic up on the list. I too was puzzled over the 
considerable amount of heat that hit my shin bones while riding. And 
then the 'problem' vanished as our bikes grew older. The excessive heat 
production is probably a result of tolerances that are on the tight side 
when the engine is new and the amount of heat decreases after a few 
thousand miles. My guess is it will be the same for the new Concours - a 
'problem' that will go away eventually.
