Did you quit riding? Perhaps "it didn't happen again" yet?

I'm on the board for our local volunteer fire station. After hearing all the favorable reports, maybe I should suggest we put loud pipes on the trucks so they don't get cut off and almost hit while responding to an incident the way they usually do. It would save us a lot of money not having to train the drivers or having to keep the lights and siren fully operational.

Naw.... they ain't gonna hit you.... you got them there loud pipes on.

I apologize.... I've exceeded my sarcasm limit for the week. I am very, very, very sorry.

This is what happens when you should be studying.

This has happened to me a few times here and there when I was sporting a set of Vance & Hines on a VN900. The number of close calls reduced once I put the stockers back on. It could be because I could actually hear what's coming towards me, presumably due to the mysterious and miraculous absence of tinnitus.

No i didn't quit riding. I just changed scoots for a while. But I am back on a Sporty so life is good again. If anything I've probably just gotten lucky. As I said, I sew the loudness as one more thing to grab attention. I most certainly don't rely on it.
