GL1800 - More heat for rider

I just upgraded this year to an 1800 from a 1500. I made winter modification to my 1500 to make it more comfortable to ride in the winter in the Dallas area. Only when it got below 15 degrees did I want to have chaps on. The modification was to restrict the outlet air from the radiator outlet and force it to come out the lower vent. Is there any similar modification that anyone knows that would help direct more of the radiator hear back on the rider?

Since the radiators exhaust heat out the sides of the fairing, a set of Baker Built (or other brand) airwings, should allow you to redirect some of that heat back on the rider.

Thanks guys. I commuter year around in the Dallas area and do not want to dress up to ride in the colder weather as I still need to be in a business causal plus when at work. So the long johns and jeans will not work. I have been looking at the different wings and wanted other input before investing in the lower wings. I currently have mirror wings which work great to bring more air in when it is a cool 105 on my way home in the summer. They also help keep cold air and rain off my hands. Sounds like it may be time to ask Santa Clause for some wings.
