  4. Two wheels, check.
    One engine, check.
    500 euros, cheque.

  5. Makes sense, considering the average annual mileage of bikes. What
    doesn't make sense is the total lack of a test here at all.

    My scooter makes a nice [1] sound when you snap open the throttle, on
    account of all the lightened / tweaked bits on it[2]. Although it sounds
    nice, it really is a little on the loud side when the packing in the
    silencer needs doing again.

    [1] Must give up my habit of going to the local multi story car park for
    my Malossi / Scoprion Braapp fix.
    [2] It would actually be quiet if it wasn't for the go faster engine bits.

  10. Somebody's making a huge markup. It's only a tenner for a cubic yard of
    the stuff.

    It's free where I am right now, my housemate has a Transit Luton van
    full of bales of the stuff on our drive.

    I still have to grin wryly when I see you supporting loud cans, you
    know. Mister "I hate race cans" has turned all the way. That empty
    Daytona race can sounded fuckin' awful from 20m away, too - and was
    audible, even at urban speeds/rpm for at least half a mile.

    I had to pay £2, because I don't have room for a bale of the stuff.. and
    I don't have a drive, or a mate with a Transit full of it. Besides, it's
    much cheaper than the rip off prices bike shops charge for a tiny little
    bag of the glass stuff.

    Oh yes, I remember at the last BOSM I went to, Loz was extolling the
    virtues of a quiet Micron (?) end can he had fitted to a bike.

    It sounded lovely, your hearing is fucked from listening to all that
    silly screamy rock music :)

    I am not very keen on screaming 4-cylinder race cans, but triples and
    V-twins are a different matter, which is why my Gixer and ZX9R had
    Quill T3s.
