I'm sure everyone is different. Leg length, riding style etc. 95 degrees is a cool day during a Northern Ca. summer but hot enough to warrant use of the deflectors. Triple digits is normal summer although we are having a break this year. During short rides it is not noticeable but on a long ride the heat builds after awhile. Adjusting the deflectors eliminates the heat. Alternatively in the winter using them to shield the wind gives some warmth so the shields are useful year-round. Cycle Ops makes billet replacements for the plexi shields. Those can be in custom color, chrome or black. They are more durable and directly replace the plastic ones.

I guess my point was - even without the deflecors on hot St. Louis (95+ degree days), while riding, I don't feel the heat. Maybe newer Visions are different? Andy reported the heat was on the left side, and I don't feel heat on that side even when sitting still.

Manage to the norm not the exception. Standing still is a temporary situation riding is the normal state. While riding with the deflectors set properly the air blows across your legs keeping them cool. Yes it does heat up at a stoplight, all bikes do. Once moving it cools right down.

Regarding the heat question by Andy, mine gets hot on my right side, but only while standing still - '08 Vision Tour Premium. I haven't invested in the lower deflectors as suggested, but I don't see how that would help when standing still anyway. It's only really be unconfortable when riding with shorts - which I only did once. But a better solution would be nice.

Andy, invest in a set of lower air deflectors. They can adjust to both reduce the wind and also direct the air to your legs. Cool as a cucumber on a hot day. Living in N. Ca. mine have been great.

Just got back from southern Ont. it was a great trip. Came back through the U.S. 27 days on the road put on 11,000 km's only had a half day of rain the whole trip.

Does anyone have a solution to channel the heat away from lower leg when riding in very hot weather? Especially on the left side which gets additional hot air from the oil cooler.

Long time pilot, hope to be a long time Vision Pilot. Planning a ride to Anchorage next summer.
