northern lights - ask him nicely would he mind rolling it away before firing up..
[cant hurt and you never know, he might be human]
loud exhausts obviously dont save lives, as in primary causation..
yet, my cb750/4 sohc with nice 4 into 1 while able to be ridden without
generating major noise [it sort of 'moaned'], would when given a couple of
blips on coming up behind, cars, moving or stopped at lights etc,
be enough to cause an automatic response of looking up into
their rear vision mirrors.. just another positive method of
switching on cager brains to my nearby presence..
[i would still treat the cager brain as if a chook brain,
but even so, every little bit helps
