I deal with that all the time, using my M3 as a shooting-blind. You have to set the cameras on the seat and roll the windows down as your cruise. Here in Colorado I often shoot when it's near 0-F. I turn on my seat warmer, but ride around with the widdows down, hat on, gloves or mitten on and all my gear ready to go. In summer, I do the same, but it's not as much of a problem due to our typically low humidity.
