1. Since cyclists ride the same direction as traffic, HOW IN THE fukc ARE THEY SUPPOSED TO KNOW YOU'RE HAULING A 10K TRAILER?
2. Smoke =! power
3. Hicks that like to turn up the fuel and make smoke are now the public's #1 negative association with diesels, the accelerated emissions standards for particulates AND the reluctance of OEM's putting smaller diesels in 1/2 ton trucks.
Just saying - you have some strange logic going on there.
