My loud Hines and Vance pipes didn't help me one bit when someone driving a van came into my lane on I-5! I had to throttle up fast in order to veer around his/her front bumper...the one that was pushing me into the adjacent lane! Freakin' scary! Had there been a vehicle in the other lane...who knows?? (I would have given the driver the finger...but that's not my style.) ~sigh~ Anyhow, I live to ride another day. Yay!
