Ha...I really appreciate leaning on the gas tank after a long ride as I fill it up with some cool premium gas.... Talk about refreshing...

If you think the RC is bad try riding an '04 and up R1 with the undertail exhaust. The positive is that you had a seat warmer in the winter. In the summer it was almost unbearable at times...

Ain't that the truth?! In summer, I never let my tank get less than 1/2 full if I can help it. For that very reason!

stick on heat shielding can help as well. do the bottom of the tank(if you have a stock air box) if you have an open top air box do the underside of it. do the tank area that isn't covered by the box. and do the bottom of your seat it will help.
