Go for a nice long ride, when the pipes are good and hot use a wood shim and scrape it off. Then give it a good polish and good as new.

Good idea. I'll have to try that. My wife speaks highly of the magic eraser.

Road Rub comes in a stick like deodorant and is specifically made to get rid of melted heels on pipes. Some HD dealers have it. Mine doesn't but he has an HD heel and boot mark remove that is a gel.

I will get a bottle this week and report back. Both have good reviews at other sites. (I heard about Road Rub on this site.)
