Heh, I remember that feeling. Was riding a Triumph 750 in the Palm Springs, CA. desert one summer with my GF of the back. Seemed like the faster we went, the hotter it got. The motor couldn't release enough heat off the fins and was getting so hot it started bogging down. Luckily we weren't too far from home yet.
