Road odor lol

Ok i was asked from the woman if you guys had any suggestions on the road smell I come in with.. After a few hours on the road I come home smelling like a MAC trucks exhaust system. I was going to ask It seams that the road odor is worse up here vs Houston. Or I was single then and didnt notice how bad I smell, She makes me shower when I walk in.. oh the inHumanity.

I find that changing clothes really helps, but it takes a shower to get rid of it completely.

Riding in the sun makes you stink more than riding at night. I do know that.

Underseat exhaust makes it worse, because the exhaust boils up in the air pocket behind you and stinks up your clothes.

I can only imagine what the chicks I was trying to talk to in class thought about the road smell, especially during the summer. I think its pretty much unavoidable.

Last Saturday I spent all day on my bike, in perforated leather, running errands. At night me and my girl rented a movie and I was gonna shower before bumming on the sofa to watch it. She was like... you don't even smell bad.

I just smell like BO from sweating. Never had anyone mention any other smells.



just curious... how does a MAC exhaust differ in smell from say, a Flowmaster?
