Going the Full Mile
September 16, 2023
I do it, and I'm not the only one who does. People who drive muscle cars or ride motorcycles will understand. When passing through the tunnels on Highway 61, I like to accelerate a little (sometimes a lot if I'm the only vehicle in the tunnel) just to hear how sweet the mufflers sound as I cruise through. I enjoy the sound of other muscle cars in the tunnel as well. But not everyone likes the noise; sometimes it can be too much.
The roar can be deafening when a group of Harley's or other road bikes pass through. My KZ 650 is not a loud bike but it sounds fantastic in the tunnel.
