Phot above

Magazine photos can be arranged for a variety of reasons. And I'm sure the rider above is very accomplished, so I'm curious why he's not getting off the bike a bit more. Dramatic photo-op? Who knows the speed, could be low speed actually, staged for the shot. I'm not being critical, but it's a fashion shot.

Many riders would have at least 1/2 cheek off the seat and be at least marginally hanging off the bike at that lean angle and pushing the bike more upright increasing your tires contact patch and allowing you more room to lean the bike even more if necessary at a higher speed to keep hard parts from dragging. In that regard, this photo is a bit misleading, though if you sit bolt upright when cornering like that you will start dragging hard parts in a similar situation.

Not suggesting you should have your knee down on an adventure bike on the street, but body positioning could change what's going on there.

Heat?

Plenty of reports on the bike throwing off quite a bit of heat onto the riders inner legs. Any '14 owners comment on that for them?

I haven't ridden it in temps over 50 so I can't say. it does seem to run a little cooler than the 990 but will have to see what happens in the summer? so far stop/go traffic that would have the 990's fan on haven't caused the 1190 fan to run?

I added (using what I had on hand) 33 mm. It helped some. I need more, because I'm 6'4" and 34" inseam. I usually need around 2". I have a straighter, higher ProTaper bar waiting for heated grips and a Renazco seat coming (to remove cut-out of R seat). Might try lower pegs (pricy for 1/2"). I will wait for grips/bar and seat before making more changes.

Just got my 14' 1190 yesterday and rode it around for an hour. Temp here was 84 (LA in the winter) and I did notice some heat but not much. I had an 04' 950 and when I rode it in temps like that it was much hotter until I put on Akras. I would say that the 1190 feels a little warmer than my 950 with Akras. Going for a ride today will check out some more supposed to be 80 today.

They added a layer of heat shield tape under the seat to help mitigate this issue. The bottom line is that you will always get some heat from the back cylinder on a twin with this configuration. Not much wind runs over it like the front cylinder.

Sounds a lot like Harley talk! I recall the blast furnace that was one of their touring machines that I owned. Not the end of the world but something to consider pre-purchase. Especially since I am considering coming off a GSA boxer layout.

My left cheek gets uncomfortably warm on my 1190R. I find myself opening my legs every once in a while to relieve the heat. My Harley gets warm in a whole different way but my a$$cheeks don't feel it.

The good news about the seat is I do not feel the need to buy a heated seat, just a more comfortable seat.

Not hearing about anyone riding a passenger. Any reports on how the wife would do on long touring-type weekends? Mine's got it pretty good right now on a 1200GSA with top box for back support.

Did a 1300km long weekend trip a few weeks back with the missus and no complaints. She has not been riding for a while so I was expecting her to get a bit uncomfortable but she reckons it was great.

The heat is not too bad, but on hot days it gets a bit uncomfortable in traffic. Certainly not a deal breaker, but it is there. I am going to start looking at ways to deal with the heat issue, because it is pretty much my only complaint about the bike, and while its not a big deal, my world would be a better place without it. Options I am considering:

1. A heat shield around the side of the frame/base of the seat.
2. A catless pipe like the Arrow to increase flow/reduce restriction (not sure if this would make much difference heat wise, but it would sound cool, and make more power)
3. Find a way to vent more air through to the rear cylinder and manifold.

Anyone looked at option 3 before?
