A very well respected enthusiast on the MOA forum stated that the Airhead RT fairings trap engine heat in the rider's comfort zone making RT's unpleasant during warm weather riding. Could some RT owners and former owners please comment on this?
The whole idea of any fairing is to create a "dead air space" behind the screen. If it was not so, then the rider would be covered in rain, dust, trash, etc.... everything the rider is trying to avoid !! So, what your "well respected enthusiast" in effect is saying is something akin to "nighttime is dark".
• The RT fairing has vents that can be aimed.
• The "lowers" can be removed for summer riding.
• And, in years past it was very popular to buy pop-in vents sold by a third party. You'd bore a 3" hole in the screen and pop these clear vents into the hole. They could be opened or closed, and swiveled around for aiming or to prevent entry by rain.
