Garbage as far as I'm concerned too. But they've done a good marketing job.

Stacks thru a box.....maybe just me but I'll never see the point. If you want stacks go buy a transport or dump truck.

Time for a new signature line!!

K&N filters and window screen are about as equally effective in removing
particulate. So now you know why you have excessive blowby... time for
a rebuild. Maybe K&N will pay for it...

Why would you want to buy more fuel just to make smoke They just made " Rolling Coal" illegal here in CO I'm not a fan of more laws. But, I think this one is a good idea.

To be fair, I took that picture in Lloydminster and I'm pretty sure we were on the Saskatchewan side of the border. Could add another whole dimension to the discussion but we don't want to go there, do we...

I did see a couple 'smokers' while passing thru Saskatchewan last week. And Manitoba. And Ontario. It seems Canada has equal rights when it comes to IQ levels.

Time for a new signature line!!

Awww! Don't worry, those coal rollers are all over the place. Was a Dodge, here, that had a huge stack that came up about the level of the top of the back window. He had to floor it off every light. Damned thing fogged Main St. out to the point that you couldn't see him, or ahead of him. Riding my Goldwing was a stinky experience from a block behind him.
