Bob I agree 100%! I have ridden my 21012 XC all over the Southeast in 97 F plus temps. Yes it was hot! But I got no burns. I wear the proper gear.Please tell me you weren't riding your motorcycle wearing shorts...flip flops too perhaps? You are straddling an engine and it will produce heat...I don't care what type of motorcycle you are riding. Even wearing jeans on a hot day you will feel the heat coming off the engine. Yes, Tigers are known to throw off a good amount of heat but seriously...wear proper riding gear.
If you are looking for any empathy/sympathy you certainly won't get it from me because you chose to ride a motorcycle not wearing proper gear. I have ridden across Death Valley with temp's approaching 120 degrees F and yes it was hot but I didn't suffer any ill effects because of the heat being thrown off from my Tiger. Why you might ask? Because I wearing proper riding gear...it's as simple as that.
