just ride naked and then put your clothes on once you arrive,lol.


seriously though, it's all part of the experience. once summer gets here the smell of sweat will drown out the exhaust smell.

I get that really bad when I ride the VMax. I just don't worry about it. Surprisingly nobody at work (office environment) has said anything about it. I figure either only I notice it or they just don't know yet how to tell me I stink
