2 months ago I had come close to the same thing on my rally bike out near Randsburg.. the fuel line chaffed at about 5 hrs of riding and when I came to a stop it .. POOF.. started on fire.. I didnt see it, I was actually astride and had earplugs on, a guy with the group was saying something pointing, I told him he sounded like Charlie Browns teacher and to speak up.. the second time I read his lips.. FIRE... lucky we had about 5 guys and ganged up on it with handfulls of dirt and rock with camelpacks dousing.. once the vent hoses got lit it took all of us practically.
NOT FUN... CHECK YOUR FUEL LINES OR RUN SOME PROTECTION OVER THEM!!!
