yes riding that bike about 10 mins will kick the fan on. the H1 single cylinder bikes have a rather large bore, which makes a good bit of heat. most folks that run them out in the dry country put the fan on a switch or a relay so that when they cut the ignition on the fan kicks on. it keeps those big singles cool. dont be worried about the fan going out, my fan has run more than 2,000 hours and seen almost 20k miles. mine is on a switch, and i run it as long as the bike is cranked. the only time i cut it off is water crossings. dont be worried about it running hot, the fan does its job those bikes are liguid and oil cooled, and will run just fine for a long time. dont sweat it just enjoy it.

i order my boots from my local dealer, but you can get them off ebay for about $10 cheaper than thru the dealer. i think they retail at about $29.

Cool

Glad you were able to have a nice ride even though it's so damn hot out. Did you get any photos you can share?
