    My dad had a Bridgestone in about 1970 or so. As I recall it was a 350 twin and it had high pipes. It was a good looking gold color. He rode it for a year or two and then went to an R75/5

    "Respect is earned". That's a popular saying and the code many live by. Sadly, they didn't have as good a dad as I was fortunate to have. One of the things he taught me is that respect is not earned....

    The trucks definitely need the engine brakes, it's just the straight pipes they don't need. I've had 5 class 8 (the largest) trucks. All had standard factory muffled exhausts. The engine brakes did...

    I guess we better not nibble our pop tarts into the shape of a gun or hold our finger and thumb in the shape of a gun and make pyow sounds too then. Hysteria covers lots of ground.

    I agree on the trucks. The decibel level of a truck is often inversely proportional to the IQ of the owner. I've been in that industry as a fleet owner, with stock exhausts/mufflers on all vehicles,...

    My hero is the tortoise not the hare. Legality aside, hyper speed means (at least it should) hyper attention to the road. That's fine but that means you don't get to see nearly as many of the...
