spoke with the dealer..
spoke with the dealer today. Told me not to worry. They said that it is normal for the temp gauge to rise as it did but it has a oil temp safety switch that will put the bike in limp mode to prevent overheating and damaging the engine. As he mentioned multiple times the engines are very strong and if the police can't kill them with there constant stop and go and sitting on the side of the highway then i couldn't either. ( local and state PD here ride the new 1200RT's). He also mentioned that if the light does come on pull over to just wait and sit out traffic till it clears. which well that could be hours. Id rather explore some power line trails instead to keep the air moving across the bike. Well that's what the dealer said, anyone been told the same or is it bs and they don't know what to do? They seemed to be very confident about it and that the bike protects itself and not to worry..
As for the cob webs I'm getting there. just don't wanna get towed back home..
