The Indian shares plenty of heat problems with the Victory. And the Victory was easier to solve.
I have a leather heat shield under my seat to deflect some of the heat off the jugs & reflective tape on the bottom of my seat. Still get almost first degree burns unless I'm moving 50+. Next will be replacing my header pipe with one without a cat in it & wrapping the pipes/headers in heat tape.
The bike fits me much better than the Vic did & is very well balanced. I do have risers on order, so I don't have to lock my elbows at a full lock turn.
