Re: Help needed with the science of heat.

What about a black silicone heat mat https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Silicone-Mats-Baking-Oven-Mat-Heat-Insulation-Pad-for-Home-Kitchen-Table-SIJ/132491908286?hash=item1ed92214be%3Am%3AmAMzZE3Fg6b_otIl65_GWDQ&var=431839958668&_sacat=0&_nkw=black+silicone+heat&_from=R40&rt=nc&LH_TitleDesc=0%7C0 ?

Re: Help needed with the science of heat.

OK so the saddlebag manufacturer assures me I'm worried about nothing. He's certain the incidents I mentioned involved PU Leather (i.e fake), or inferior quality leather. He's positive mine will be fine as long when I sit on the bike and compress the suspension under my weight, I leave an inch betwe...

a nice porterhouse steak wrapped in alfoil gaffa taped to the bottom of the bag
Looks ugly, but tastes good at the end of a ride :)
Best response yet. Add a custom shaped Billy and I can also have coffee on the go :)

Re: Help needed with the science of heat.

https://www.ebay.com/bhp/exhaust-insulation ? ... Others have addressed this by adding a heat shield to the exhaust pipe. I don't want to do this. It looks crap...... Not a fan of the look of those those wraps. But If I was to attach that sort of thing to the bottom of the saddle bag, what would be...

Re: Help needed with the science of heat.

I’d actually suggest getting a couple of full thickness bits of cowhide and dying them and using them as sacrificial thingies. B> Good idea. I'll need to figure our how to attach it so it's also removable once it's time to "make the sacrifice". Plywood is easy, a few bolts through the bottom of the...

Re: Help needed with the science of heat.

Is the heat damage caused by exhaust gas, or by proximity to the sides of the exhaust pipe? (Getting more air flow between the pipes and the bags might be handy, at least when you're moving). It's from being in close proximity to the hot pipe. Airflow isn't a problem on a motorbike, which probably ...

Help needed with the science of heat.

There are some pretty smart science types on here, so maybe you'll be able to answer a question. I've searched all the motorcycle forums and come up with not much at all ....... I just bought leather saddle bags for my bike. Occasionally, other owners of the same bike report that the heat from the e...

Re: Rant Thread !

OK I'm going to rant about the NRL coaching saga at Penrith. I for the life of me can't believe this much drama can happen just 4 weeks out from the semi-finals, to a team that is only one win away from being in the top 4. Then there's the flow on effect with Tigers supporters (including me) all swe...

Re: Health Goals for 2018

I popped my radioactive iodine capsule yesterday - no need to spend 3 days in a lead lined room this time, as the dose is very small. Just need to keep away from pregnant women and babies for a few days this time. I have the scan tomorrow. Heard back from my endocrinologist this week to let me know...

Re: MotoGP and World Superbikes are losing their appeal for me

I hear you Bazz. But I've always thought of F1 and Moto GP as a test of man and machine. If it's driver ability you want to be the main differentiator, I tend to go looking at one of the many race formats where everyone drives the came type of car. Porsche Carrera Cup for example. I guess my "gear n...
