Where I live this is very common. Lots of Diesel trucks that are modified with loud exhaust and after market boxes, turbo's pumps etc. I have had six Diesel trucks wanting to race me at stop lights since I have owned my Talon. My street racing days are over so just tell them see ya at the track. lol

It is even better when they do that to you and you are on your bike. How are we supposed to be impressed? Do they feel threatened by the "look of speed" I possess while on a bike?

These are rhetorical questions. I know why they do it.

Yeah, seen that here too. People like that end up getting boxed in. You can stay in his blind spot on the drivers side and avoid the fumes.

It takes a whole truckload of manliness to pass a car that doesn't even have its engine on.
