That is a great explanation as to why carbed bikes and cars have the monoxide oversmell. When I rode behind the fuel injected Harley no smell what so ever. The old school carb
, with it's excellent sounding loaping idle thanks to the cams, is great. I admit the bike is heavy on fumes.
When I start the bike with the choke engaged it reminds me of my old 1963 MGB and a 1968 390 ci
. Mustang I owned many years ago. Those babies would make your eyes water, dry your throat, gas your cat and cause the next door neighbor to move.
+1 for Fuel injection, -1 carbed engine (unless you disliked your neighbor)
I told my wife I should nickname the bike "Old Stinky" but she frowned on that. I call my bike Old Duke. "Gonna take Old Duke for a tear, be back later."
I once said I am gonna take Old Stinky for a run, and she replied, why bother running, take your bike for a ride. When you come home I will have the tub filled for you.
Well, the mystery of the smelly bike is solved. Old school is cool but has to sit in the back of the class.
