I work at one of those Joint Base places only ours is run by the army. They started hiring ex army people to stand the gates so i would get some momentum up on my 23 year old Transalp and hit the kill switch just before the gate. Glide in quite as a mouse! Most of these guys are young and have never seen a Transalp, it never failed they would comment on just how quite it was. I would look at them straight faced and tell them it was electric, you know, battery powered. They would always be impressed and give me back my ID at which point I would hit the start button and drive off. Fortunately, these guys have great sense of humors.
