It's been low 40s, high 30s (Fahrenheit) lately. This OEM heater is a godsend. Rode her into work Christmas day and I only wished that I had some warmer gloves - everything else was roasty toasty!

Hi, just got me a 2012 panigale S ABS with only 2616km on it. Got it for a nice price, have been reading about the heat shields, so it looks i still can pick them up for free? Bike is under warrenty till 05/14. I do have questions regarding the looks. Specifically the engine covers, the pipe cover looks doable.

I Ride: 1199 Panigale/Triumph Speed Triple R
Took a 20 mile ride yesterday with the stock seat in 30f temps.

Since backing it with heat tape a month or so ago, the stock seat is noticeably cooler and I like the seat height better than the DP comfort seat.

I have the old style manifold heat shield which has never bothered me (and I rode in a lot of +90f temps this past summer).

Ride was over to an off-road shop to use their lift table to put on a 41t rear quick-change sprocket setup. Had my "winter" leathers on (i.e. non-perfed) along with thermal underwear.

Had a nice time -especially since I hadn't been on it since before thanksgiving.

I rode my bike in the desert near me when it was 120F and it was no problem. I think the people who feel the heat the most are those wearing just jeans or pants. I don't feel anything through my leathers or textiles even when sitting in traffic forever.
