Yes, Bueller, he's got the hook out. Kinda hard to resist after a while, isn't it?
If he wants to keep pitching opportunities to make himself look like an idiot, who am I to stop him

Blurring the line between tough love & enabling an addiction?

Complete opposites, yet both undeniably internal combustion engines. And there is no smog problem in my state, other then around the airport, which has arrivals and departures about 5 minutes apart 24/7. You can see the billowing jet fuel smoke coming out of the planes. They actually operate fairly efficiently at 40,000 feet, but they are anything but at slow speeds. And they have absolutely no emissions controls at all.

As for that picture from China, I have never actually seen anything like that. It certainly did not come from cars, motorcycles, and scooters. If it really is that bad, then it HAS to be industrial pollution. Motor vehicles lack the ability to produce that kind of smog.
Did you know that NASCAR uses E15 fuel, 15% ethanol?

I'm not raising him, educating him, or rehabilitating him. I'm just slapping him when he's an idiot, which is most of the time.

Yes, they use Sunoco E15, they also use fuel injection. But it is the very primitive TBI that hasn't been used on street cars in almost 20 years. But one thing NASCAR does not use, in any way shape or form, is emissions control devices. The do still use restrictor plates, because today's cars go to fast for the tracks that were built way back when. What they need to do is build some new tracks. And at least the cars have RWD and manual transmissions. And then there's Danica Patrick.

I bet this bike gives a little boost to v-rod sales when they're traded in.

Psssst, it's not the older, smaller, tracks they use restrictor plates on.

the radiator and assorted junk under the shroud can't look worse than what I assume is a cheap plastic shroud. since that's what it looks like. toss it on the extra parts pile.
