Whaaat! Thats almost unimaginable Bob.

Iíve lived through 45C, but that was in a place called Marble Bar in Western Australia and thats reputed to be the hottest place in Australia. Thereís no bitumen roads there though.... Just a pub.Smiley

Pretty common here to have temps of 110-120 F, 43-49 C from June through September .
Air cooled bikes don't like these temps !!!

That is a great idea!  Thank you; and yes, what were the guys at BMW thinking with those tiny plastic tabs?
