Angry Fire!

Hi all.

So today went on a group ride. All was going well when I met with the group.Take off going down the freeway and I can hear the bike sounding funny.Ok.
About 10 km into the ride TEC(tail end charlie) overtakes me tells me to pull over and starts yelling at me that the rear end of the bike is on fire!.
Jump off the bike and flames are coming from under the pillon seat!
TEC runs to the petrol station and a couple of cars pull over with fire extinguishers spraying the bike.
When the drama is over all the rear indicator section melted.And falling off. So lucky there was a TEC that saw the danger - if not well, who knows.
Gave a quick call to MVF4SR and he was down in a flash with the tralier to help me. Thanks MVF4SR!

Will get some photos to show.

flat out, than most people live in a lifetime.
