Heat mitigation for V4 ...

Ok, so I'm already baking alive on my V4 when I ride around in slower traffic here in the SF Bay Area when the outside temps are hovering about 55F (12C).. what am I going to do when it's in the 80's and even 90's??

Anyone have any ideas what can be done to reduce this? Radiator additives? Heat shield kits? etc?

I’ve put frame covers and tank grip to try and help. It has a little but the heat is still well and truly there.

I’ve just bought myself a pair inner thigh padded motocross shorts to wear under my pants, haven’t tried them yet though.

I always wear leathers and that helps. I am in the central valley California so it gets pretty hot starting in May.
