100C is 212 F -- boiling point of water.

C is based on water: 0 is freezing, 100 is boiling.

Water freezes at 32F. Go figure.

Another reason the metric system makes sense.

I hope thats Fahrenheit not Celsius

230 = 110ºC

To convert a Fahrenheit temperature into Celsius:

C = (5/9)*(F-32)

To convert a Celsius temperature into degrees Fahrenheit:

F = ((9/5)*C)+32

I pulled over today when I was riding to talk to a guy who had a red 98 R1. He had a little button on the front fairing, I asked what it was, he had wired a switch so he could cut his fan on/off automatically...cost him 3bucks for the red button. He turns it on whenever he is in traffic.
