It was a great weekend around here so I went for a little ride on the '16 Dark Horse. I realize 68 degrees isn't summertime heat but it's warm enough to know how hot the bike will run. I went 25 miles in mixed traffic before the first stop. When we stopped my friend on a 2013 HD 103ci asked me how hot my bike was. I put my hand on the rocker boxes, they were warm but I had no problem keeping my hand there as long as I wanted. I then put my hand on the jug fins, they were warmer for sure, but I could keep my hand on them for 10 seconds. I have owned more HD's than I care to count, 80ci, 88ci, several 96ci, one 110ci and two 103ci and I can tell you this, if I touched those engines after 5 minutes of riding I would have had blisters on my hands. My friend wouldn't dare touch his engine. Next ride I will have a thermo gun with me to see the exact difference.
