I'm new to this site and to riding bike. I am the passenger. Here is my situation; I have a metal plate in my big toe of course on the right side , so its right next to the pipes. I always wear harley leather boots when on the bike. After riding for one to two hours this plate is heating up and causing me extreme discomfort, basically burning my foot from the inside. There has got to be other people out there that ride and have a similar situation. What I want to know is what I can do to keep the heat away from my foot. PLEASE if you know anything to help with this issue give me your suggetions. I love riding on the bike and refuse to give it up. I tried to find heat resistant boots but they are not available from harley at this time. Thank you so much for helping with this issue.
