    I've ridden in some snow like that.  I recall have to pry the seat out of my butt when I got home, but I made it.
    That's what the heated seat is for!

    Icy, I did figure the first two photos were taken on the same day.  You had me feeling good on the first one, but feeling NO on the second.

    From reading some of the comments here, it looks like the gen4 has improved the heat situation.  One good change.

    Gen4 heat situation -> they removed the radiator from its original location, split it into two pieces (ala Panzer) moved it up and stuck it inside the fairing, put two huge fans on each, put airvents that point sideways and outwards hoping that the hairdryer won't blow towards you... it's a radical change alright and I am dying to hear what it does and how it performs from somebody who'd put it to the test

    Recently in the UK it has been warm (comparitively)..
    I simply removed my screen (much to the annoyance of my mates with the same bike as me)..
    It made a MASSIVE difference to to cooling air..
    I dont care if it "Looks cool" or not.. It is FAR better to ride without a screen in warm weather..
    Dont jusdge me until you have tried it !!!

    I notice that the TEX is running pretty hot for the driver. Due to the good wind deflection you dont cool down very much. I notice that driving with temps of about 27 / 28 celcius is still fun, but hotter isn't fun anymore. Low temps I don't know yet, but I guess around freezing would still be OK.
