Smell like exhaust?

Anyone else smell like exhaust after riding for a long time? It's kind of annoying. Just me?

I love it. I always take my hoodie off and sniff it a few times after a ride.

Make sure you never ever use paper towels. Your gonna get bugs on your windshield/face shield. The sexy exhaust smell and bugs on you is just part of the gig.

Axe makes some travel size spray you can get in the travel toiletry section of your walmart or target type stores. It fits right in my side jacket pocket. And according to the commercials the women will flock to you with that stuff on. I have it but hadn't gotten that reaction yet sadly. But then I haven't tried it on a night out either.

Yep power commander five
Bike runs overly rich in some areas esp cruise zones and top rpm
Very lean in other areas
With a pcv I am Abe to adjust the fueling perfectly
You will have no more smell
No soot in your tailpipe
Better mpg
Smoother all around
Better power
Easier shiftingand a bunch of other benefits

If you do alot of city riding, stay further back from the cars in front of you, helped me cut down on the smell (since most cars exhaust is aimed right at you) Had someone tell me the same thing about smelling like exhaust, and if you are at work dealing with clients/bosses not a good thing.
