I think I got burned but it looks like a bruise

So I just started riding. This weekend was my second day out with my R6. And I kept feeling like the left side of my bike was SUPER hot! Like it literally felt like it was burning while I was riding, but didn't think much of it. Whe I got home and looked at my leg... it has a HUGE bruise that literally wraps around the inside of my calve from font to back. It didn't hurt till this morning where it now is a little sesitive but not like a normal bruise where it hurts when you press on it. I was wondering if this is normal and if my skin will just adjust to the heat?

Re: I think I got burned but it looks like a bruise

the bike being hot is normal, getting burned isnt. you should be wearing long jeans at minimum, maybe you were, i dont know.

THIS is a burn. (see below) yours sounds weird. but know, it's not a good idea to ride in shorts, b/c i'm guessing that's what you're currently doing.

(long story short, burn from a "midship" on a buddy's bike i got while loading it up for the track on friday afternoon)

Re: I think I got burned but it looks like a bruise

Do you have any pics? unless you actually hit your leg on something its most likely not a bruise but no way to tell for sure without seeing it. I had a similar thing happen to me last summer... I rode our 07 R6 from St George back to Vegas and it felt really hot on the left side the whole time but i was wearing jeans so i figured it couldn't be actually burning me. By the time we got into vegas it hurt/burned like hell so i rolled up my pant leg to find 1st/2nd degree burns all over around my knee and lower leg. The only thing it could have been was from the excess heat blowing off the left side of the engine onto my leg. (i'll add a pic later when i get home)

Wow...it kinda looks like a burn ..and your sure you didnt bang it into anything... typically a burn blisters some...and atleast peels a little depending on how severe...are you putting anything on it? like a bandage ..neosporin ?
