A friend rode his new bike over to my house last night.  The chrome was all I could capture in the darkness.  That is my lawn in the thingamabob there.  I am not a fan of vehicles beyond their capacity to get me from A to B, but this one was totally boss.  Then he started it up.  

The machine coughed up deep, loud rumblings that were both obnoxious and entirely intentional.  We have the technology, as a species, to muffle such noise pollution.  Yet, some choose not to.  I suppose the noise does serve as some sort of challenge to the other male Neanderthals.  Ego emissions, indeed.  

No offense to my friend, of course. ; )

    Wow that is a pretty cool bike and nice photo. I wish I had one like that – oh wait that is mine. So I had all my neighbors over last night checking out the new ride and I realize something when CO said to me “that is pretty loud.” I realized then that the loudness echoed my personality. I have never hidden the fact that I am loud – and now everyone knows it! I honest think thats why I like it so much. And don’t worry DL I know you are calling me a Neanderthal with love so no worries! :P
