Garage Talk

Yo. My ears are ringing. Yesterday was my first PVT RUN of 2021. Holy shit the ZF exhaust is hella loud! Spending long period of time at high rpm will most definitely make you deaf lol! On some grown man shit, I slapped the N1 back on. So I want y’all’s opinion. Which type of exhaust does your ear drums prefer? Resonator and muffler setup (some call this 2 silencer combo)? Muffler with no resonator? Straight up piping with no resonator and muffler??

I’m all about those deep tones and cool vibrations.

Tokkōfuku

Special Attack Uniform. The clothing that many Bosozoku wear.

Some folks are Bosozoku “enthusiast”. I say enthusiast because they aren’t full fledge Bosozoku, but a hooligan one way or another. The ones who are like that may not rock a complete Tokkōfuku with phrases and symbols, but may wear a coverall to represent what they are about (kanjozoku’s & Kei Miura for example). I fall into that category as well. Over the past 12 years I have accumulated quite a few coveralls along with vintage ones from the military. Whenever I go on a PVT run I wear one; an act to bomb the night.

One thing is many Bosozoku drive cars. It’s quite uncomfortable (I can drive with them on but don’t prefer it) to drive in boots, especially a manual car (Nike SB Dunks is my choice of shoes for my Tokkōfuku). From my research I found out which boots, particularly with Kei Miura, wears. They are Red Wing Engineer boots. And from reviews they are quite comfortable and easy to drive in!

Time for some custom work on the coveralls so they can be certified Tokkōfuku… Stay tuned!

Theoretically speaking, If I had to compare the environment to a real place, I’ll say it’s Wakasa Wada beach in Takahama (two hours away from Kyoto).

What a vibe. Imagine parking your Bosozoku ride on the beach and chilling out.
