Looks nice but looks too far rearward to do any good. My legs are in front of that opening.

Anybody found any frame guards yet?

That looks cool but surely is in entirely the wrong place for rider leg cooling?

yes mate you are right on the money there...
'Im already used to the small amount of heat coming through.
In summer it was only slightly annoying however in winter
it will be a bonus...
I think just riding this bike well into the 5,000rpm zone and you will forget the
heat...

"Small amount of heat" ??? Then I have a bigger problem coz mine is friggin HOT!!
Rode a 100 or so Kim's in 34c temp and I was cooking my leg big time. Had to stand up, throw my legs open, move around etc to try and cool off. I had read about this prior to buying but thought it can't be such an issue but it is way more than I imagined

I haven't heard of it being this extreme of an issue before.. can other US 1190 R owners confirm if it's as bad as this?

Would this be something an aftermarket exhaust + tune might cure? I know a lot of US bikes run hot due to emissions regs and running the bike lean..

Thanks in advance!

The one I test rode in Florida was on a 85 degree day. I did notice some heat on my left leg but far from anything unbearable.

Have any of you ever ridden a Harley?

Just learn to open your leg out from time to time, its something that canbe dealt with without all these side panels etc..

Whenever i ride this bike im totally engaged in how sweet this motor is and how well the chassis works on the road... simply amazed.
I stepped off a K13s and can telly you honestly the 1190 is my preffred bike by a looong shot..
