If you lived in the lake country of northern Minnesota you'd understand about the mosquitoes, but I imagine the engine would pulverize their remains pretty well and shoot them out the exhaust to be cremated in the catalytic muffler. I've inhaled a few while riding and must remember to keep me mouth shut. Or put a stainless steel pot scrubber in there while riding. It would give an interesting look to see a smiling old Indian ride by with a shiny mouth Scare the tourists and keep out the riff raff. Ha! Now you've got me wondering about a possible quieting effect. I sure hope so since I'm going to be fooling with a pocket bike expansion chamber for that bike as soon as it comes in the mail. I suppose the exhaust may be louder. Maybe not, but just different. Like BarelyAwake, I'm not too crazy about loud.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
