We would park our motorcycles in the driveway and talk about what it would be like to own a Honda 750 - four (they were the hottest street bike at the time). The little brat came over and took the gas cap off one of the bikes, stuck his nose in the hole and breath in for a minute or two. He then went and sat down on the grass and pointing at the house saying. "I see a blue ' L ' on every brick!"

roadraced motorcycles many years ago and there was a gas station where you could get 105 octane unleaded out of the pump. We'd use it in the bikes. It smelled sweet with like an alcohol vapor hit behind it. It also smelled good at the exhaust side. The best smell was when we mixed 2-stroke fuel. Race fuel and castor oil. I love the smell of 2-strokes in the morning.
