Engine heat

Considering a Royal Star Tour Deluxe, new but 07 model. Do you notice much heat coming off the motor when riding in hot weather?
Thanks

engine heat solution

I ride most days through out the summer months here in So. Florida. See attached photos of my 07 RSTD. The wind wings keep heat in during the cool mornings and then you open them to allow air past the engine to cool. I added the highway pegs for leg comfort and they also lend foot movement off the footrest out to the pegs for additional foot/leg cooling.
