Default Re: Hit By a Veichle

No need to look up... I can be heard when needed, but when I reach the neighborhood you won't hear me go by since I'm usually idling along in 2nd or 3rd gear nice and quietly... I used to work swing shift at Boeing for several years and none of the neighbors ever said they could hear me go by on the way home in the middle of the night.
Pretty much as long as I take off slowly and sensably nobody indoors will hear me, but if I do take off at full throttle Everyone hears it. I used to have that favorite spot to take off hard and fast on my way home until one night I saw the cop cars kinda hidden out of the way right before I really gunned it so I took a different route home for a week or so then just kept quiet on that stretch too...
