    Despite the fan, last summer when stuck in line for about an hour at a border crossing, I sill had to shut the bike off as the temperature gauge was indicating that engine was beginning to overheat. I don't use it that often, and when I do, I am seldom parked as long as that one border crossing. I most likely could have survived without installing the fan.
