Burned the lower corner of my jeans off the other day

Thats right.. I went for a ride to a Euro bike nite on RT3, had a good time, rode home and realized the next day that my jeans were burned. A large chunk of fabric (4x4) was singed right off, I can't believe my jeans didnt actually catch on fire. Same thing happend again a few days later and I realized when I'm not wearing my Sidi boots my jeans tend to bunch up on the inside next to the pipes.

Anyone else evey see or experience this??

Yeah, the bottom of my jeans get singed, but not burnt through. Mine are heavy duty and hand made from some hard core yarn that holds up to just about everything. Might need some taller boots, or better jeans.

Timmay, tim-may timmay timmay. TIMMMAAYYY!!

Nope, but one time my older Sidi boot's velcro flap was jammed open by the F4 exhaust heat shield, and by the time I noticed I was home and noticed 1/2 of that plastic flap was gone- melted onto the pipe.

yeah melted the plastic on my sidis only very slightly but does it a fair bit, just warms it changes its shape a little then cools down again. running without a cat could stop this.
