I havn't looked at a 87 gixxer in a while. Might just be the way the fairing lets the air vent. The bandit cooks me pretty evenly.

Build a man a fire, and he is warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he is warm for the rest of his life.

Everything I know I learned from killing smart people and eating their brains.

You should ride my CBR600F4i. It pumps out some major heatwaves.

My 86 and 87 1100's are about even as far as heat. My Busa, when the fan is running, will cook my left side to almost well done if I get stuck in traffic like when I was in Daytona.

my 88 is hotter on the left too.

The older I get,
The better I was.
