    It finally happened.....

    No, I didn't drop the bike or crash - I did a horrible, no good, very bad thing......I burned my leg on the exhaust pipe and NOW it has a secondary infection!!!

    Riding in shorts? Sounds pretty awful, take your antibiotics and heal up quickly. Vitamin E oil can help with scarring.

    I did that once (sans the infection anyways), it was the last time I wore shorts on a motorcycle.

    Funny thing --- my wife, ex-wife, and all the ex-girlfriends in between have the same scar from the same thing (inside lower left leg from muffler while dismounting from the pillion). I brand my women and give them something to remember me by for the rest of their lives.

    Jeans at a minimum ... I prefer overpants but I'm in the minority
    Ride safe, ride smart, ride ATGATT because sweat dries faster than scars heal
