    [...Ain't no need for a over engineered, heavy, maintenance intense water cooling system on a bike...:rolleyes1...]


    In your opinion, it may be over-engineered but I've yet to have trouble with the liquid cooling system on any of my bikes while on long trips or short rides. And would shutting off the rear cylinder of an air-cooled bike on a hot day while at a stop be considered over-engineering or is a band-aid applied to a known problem?

    Having said that, you can ride whatever you want and keep happy! :-)

    Obviously you missed the satire.... But FWIW just do a search on this forum and you will find radiator replacements and other cooling issues...on the NT no less

    Willing to bet the view from the saddle isn't much different than what we are riding now.
