Well, hell, as long as everybody showed up...

That big black mess is a combination of melted rubber, whatever other plastic crap your cheapass boot soles are made of, melted rain gear, shoe polish, (oh...wait...nemmind ), dirt, etc., etc..

Warm it up. Scrape off as much as possible, using something softer than chrome plating. Then try a solvent, I've had GREAT luck with denatured alcohol. It that don't work, try the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Those things are amazing!

I know, I know, lots of folks tell you to use 0000 steel wool. Personally, no.

But whatever floats your boat.

Take the bike for a good ride, while the pipes are hot spray a good amount of wd40 on a rag and rub it off, keep applying the wd40 to the rag. I learned this on a forum, works like a dream and won't scratch your chrome.

I use a plumbers torch and a 100% cotton rag. USE only a cotton rag! Heat it up and wipe it off.

Thanks.

use 0000 steal wool, and windex. Warm up he exhaust a little and it with the Windex and wipe off with the steel wool. Works every time. That is if your pipes are chrome

Get her to try riding bare footed. She'll learn where the hot parts are.

Lol, it's probably from him. At least that's who messed up the pipes on mine.
