You're overthinking it. When you're riding that bike, your legs won't be anywhere close enough to the pipes to be burned by them.

They do put off lot of heat. If you have short legs might be close up to pipes at a stop. Don't wear shorts in that case. :)

a) in my opinion, riding a motorcycle in shorts is just an idiotic thing to do, regardless of your size or the motorcycle's.
b) if you're short enough that the vision pipes are a danger to your legs, it's probably too big of a bike for you.
c) left leg down at a stop, right foot on the rear brake. many potential problems solved.

I agree with all the above. I do get a lot of that exhaust heat on my leg on my XCT though.

Will agree. My XCT pipes throw off what seem like a lot of heat. The boss complained some and I wrapped them in header wrap. It has helped some. All pipes are hot no matter what bike.
