Global warming is real and it is caused by Harley-Davidson.
The catalytic converter is right by your right foot on the newer Harleys. I cannot believe how hot my FLHTP has been this summer. Some of the guys I work with have literally blistered their legs from the engine heat. I saw an LA Sherrif's test where the radiant heat was 299 and I'm sure they didn't test it after idleing for several minutes in 100+ degrees.
