Yea, and I just learned that the a/c 2012 I ordered is the audio/comfort model... I thought it meant air conditioning. :joke:

Last two days have been hotter than Hell riding through Illinois, Missouri and Arkansas. Doesn't look like Texas is going to be much better...

http://cruiseman2011.blogspot.com/2011/07/and-heat-goes-on.html

I hear ya.....temps were reasonable til Sunday afternoon. Was low 80s when I left Illinois Sunday Am. By the time I got to the KC area, it was mid 90s, and has been going up since.

Temps in the KC area today are hovering just over 100.

Normally, I'd tell you to come back to Michigan, but, all that heat is heading this way. Sorry.

Good news, summer is here! I don't mind the heat, hate the cold though. I enjoy heat actually. I've been through Arkansas, Texas, Las Vegas, Miami. I've seen um all in the summer and they are hot, well that is summer and summer is the best time of the year.

I never been through that, but remember Las Vegas at 113 degrees on a GL1200. A GL1200 at 113 is about the same as a GL1800 at 130 so I think I would still be OK.

try installing a oil temp guage and see how hot the crankcase gets,,those air cooled bikes almost boil the oil.
