Disappointment

Decades ago, with my Yamaha SRX6, I used to scare pedestrians, especially those with hot pants, by flipping the kill switch, opening the throttle for some seconds and turning on the engine in the right moment - BANG!
But now it shows that today's technology also has disadvantages: using the kill switch on my Versys obviously deactivates the fuel injection, so no gas fumes into the hot muffler, no more BANG... well, at my age now I would not scare people, but "shooting" in tunnels still could be fun - it is never too late to have a happy childhood.

Get a better horn and you will be able to "serenade" them in tunnels...!

How did you guess? Well, it's true, but only in the lower grades. Later they did not find out who it had been.
