I'm 2 weeks and 1500 or so miles into a 10 week cross country journey. And as someone fairly new to riding, and especially to flying bricks, I've tried to be hyper-aware of what's going on with the bike (thank god for the forum). Which is why I was dismayed to see this huge dent in my exhaust pipe today:

For some reason the pic is uploading upside down, so the dent is actually on the underside of the exhaust. Did a drunk kick it? Wait, that's not my question. My real question is, is this a problem? The bike has been running just fine, as far as I can tell. I haven't banged it against anything, or side swiped anything - I think I'd remember a bump good enough to do that - so I'm really not sure where this came from. Deal with now or ride on and deal with after the trip? Thanks all...
