I got to ride all the Harley touring bikes today, back to back (it was in the mid 80's temperature wise). Then I went and road a Roadmaster. I was shocked how much hotter the Roadmaster was. The Indian staff said it was not typical and blamed it on the back to back demo rides (they verified the vents on the lowers were open during my ride). BUT, the Harley's were ridden back to back (and actually the Harley demos were much busier than the Indian ones) so I don't buy that. The Indian staff also said the Harley's have heat shields stock from the factory, and Indian does not. They suggested that if the heat bothered me I could add them - but then again changing the cooling air flow could do more harm than good too. Which makes me wonder why they weren't included from the factory. The Roadmaster was borderline uncomfortable (like stop the demo ride too warm), whereas the Harley's were 'just warm'. Let me also state I've never owned a Harley or an Indian: just 1 Kawasaki, 1 Suzuki, 1 Yamaha, and 5 BMW's. Thoughts? Comments?
