I had a little crash on my supermoto last weekend at the track and was pinned under my bike. Thankfully my buds were there to pick the bike off me (after pointing and laughing a bit) but upon inspection of my bike I noticed some red stuff on my header pipe. Check it out:



Then I realized it was actually leather than had been burned off my boot! I was pinned under the bike for a good 30 seconds or so, and the pipe burned a significant hole, I can only imagine what that would have been like if I hadn't been wearing tall boots and if nobody was there to pick the bike off me! My skin would have been burned to the bone :eek5

Yeah I was thinking if I didn't have boots, I would have still been stuck under there and the more I moved the more skin would burn off....could have been nasty!

Yep, same thing happened to me in a low side. Bike was pinned under me and burned/melt/deformed my zipper area and more on my Frank Thomas XTI Textile jacket.
