Honda gixxer & powel, i see were both of you are coming from..its like this, my R1 has full yoshi carbon cans on it, with the baffles removed at the moment..BUT..when i come into a 30/40 mph i slow down and dont take the piss, unlike some bikers who keep it pinned, a good example of which is entering the village of shap in cumbria, on the A6, the road up from kendal is a really good thrash, in the middle of nowhere, so you dont really piss anybody off except the sheep!! lol,
As you come into shap the speed limit drops to 40 or 30?? cant remember, either way we slow down, but some dont, as the straight road still allows a fair old speed..how do you think those people feel who live in that village?? if they have kids who play out front??..
On the flip side, and heres were i agree with hondagixxer, i dont like boring old farts telling me what i should and shouldn't be doing, if i scrutineered their life, i'd find summat about them that i wouldn't like, i work bloody hard to have my bike and all the extras that are on it, and there are far worse crimes being committed than some noisy bikes!! so get over it..the moral is, dont give them an excuse..slow down where needs be..then...F**KIN PIN IT!!!!!!!!!!
