Question that will make you laugh

I have a question. It will bring a smile to your face. I started using a ZTR at he end of last season. I love it. The problem is the seat heats up and burns my rear. (Go ahead take a moment and laugh) . But in all seriousness the only time I have had a seat do this is when I had a motorcycle with the exhaust run under the seat. I have a Great Dane ZTR and the only thing under the seat is the gas tank. After sitting on the thing for about 3 hours it really starts to burn. Anyone have any thought (Or smart a** remarks)?

Never heard of that, On hot days my Exmarks give off some heat from the muffler, but I have nver experienced what you are talking about in thousands of hours of ZTR use.

Chevy trucks, Exmark Lazers, enclosed trailers.

Put a plow blade on it and make it your sidewalk rig.
