Tired of using a backpack strapped to the seat ( everything got squashed ), and heading out to the Island on Sunday, I decided to buy one of these... Problem I have is that the straps come around under the tail and above the exhaust. One strap rests on the outer exhaust shield. Whislt riding the exhaust does not feel hot at all. However once the bike is turned off aprox 10 min, there is serious heat there. I could always remove the bag once stopped, but that can be a nuicance. Was thinking.. is there something I could use that is heat resisitant to insulated the straps with? Perhaps some kevlar off an old pair of jeans ?? Any Tips woud be appreciated. PS: the pic is not of my hornet, but the exhaust configuration is similar.
