<<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.


I still consider mine to be hot in traffic. It's a motor sitting between 
your legs. It's going to be hot, they all are.
