Can you hold your hand on it or is it too hot for that?
They will get warmer than you might think at first blush but you nailed it with the rads mounted on the side up front.
In North Georgia it is a great place to warm your hands on cooler mornings in the spring/fall before you install heated grips.

I could hold my hand against it for a few seconds without much discomfort but I can definitely feel the heat. Almost as hot as the silencer.

Don't ride with shorts on. :-)
