I've put 6000km on my 13 judge in about 2.5 months. I feel no more heat from my pipes then any other bike ive been on. And I have fat calves. Im not sure how you guys ride. Maybe you hug the bike with your knees...but i have no heat on leg issues. Yes Ive dragged my pegs a couple times...but doesn;t everybody? I think I've dragged them maybe a total of three times. Just enough to know i can;t lean that far while turning left onto a hill. Its all preference though. Not knocking anyone elses. But for me, the mid mount is what made the judge different,,,and why i like it so much. I'm glad I got the 13 before the changes were made.
Long live the oval
