I could ride all day long on wing wearing shorts and the only burn I got was a sun burn. Same goes on a beamer. The reason being on a wing the heat is directed back toward the rear tire. Ive ridden the harleys and they were damn hot but not as hot on the legs as the vic. I assume air flow has a lot to do with it.
Anyway, not sure how a seat changes the heat to your legs or the feet of the passenger? I need more information to understand how it works? Also how does a seat pad keep heat off your legs? As far as the vents being kept closed I cant say Ive had the experiance of less air flow keeping my legs cooler. I know opening diff amounts can change things but if i close them completely I might as well be a oscar myer wiener because Im roasted. Hence why Im very hopeful these shields will help. No question Bob has a very reasonable price and from what I have seen the best design to date. I"m really hoping they might help direct the heat away from my passengers feet.
