problem i need a remedy

allrighty here it goes...my bike is parked in my appartment and after riding it one of my roomates has a keen sense of smell and he says that it smells the fumes from my bike....allrighty is there anything i can do to stop the fumes?
i figured that it is the exhaust can that the smell was comming from natuarally since carbon debris lingers in there....it isnt a gas smell just a exhaust smell....well i put a plastic bad on the end of the can to stop further esther escaption. anyway does anyone know of anything i can do so that the smell isnt there anymore....

btw my roomie has allergies and burning a scented candle is a no go....thanks for all the help i dont want my girl to be sleeping outside

i have an idea......throw a sheet on top of the bike...then special make with visquene and duct tape cover for it....then make the cover go down to the floor and place towels all around the bottom and then hang a couple pine tree air fresheners off the hndle bars and then i should be smeel free eh? and if my roomie can still smell it then i think he has a problem, lol

just buy a decent fitted cover for it, they go on pretty tight and are water proof so no smell will get through.

do not get a cheap cover, make sure it has the fire proof botom section, if it costs less then 50 bucks then something may be wrong. without the bottom piece, it may melt to your exhaust.

Tell him to take his panties off and shoot some Test for a couple weeks, then maybe he wont be such a p***y. Tell him Martha Stewart has a nice home here on MDI if that would suit his needs and be a more gentle environment for him and his fragile existance!!!!!!!!!
