Exhaust fire!

Well, almost at least. After an evening of "spirited" riding, I pulled up to my house and put the bike away. The now sticky back tire had picked up some debris from the street and deposited it on top of the catalitic converter. I guess it was wood, because first i smelled it burning, then I actually saw it glowing red like well used charcoal. I am really suprised that our bikes dont come equipped with a rear fender from the factory to stop this from happening, it was good for a laugh though.

I am allergic to cats and catalytic converters as well.
