Melted Taillight

Anyone else seen a stock MY10 exhaust system melt a tail light?

(Stock exhaust in place. Cat unmodified, I even left the silly valve actuator alone.)

it is hot as hell in texas... but apparently I underestimated exactly how hot that was.

Of course for Mitch and Jon who I am sure will confirm I ride like a grandmother --- I can still get it hot.
