Loud pipes suck. They just annoy the public and just reinforce all the negative perceptions the public has of us.

I personally do not enjoy the sound of a loud bike, either loud exhaust (Straight pipes) or someone on a sport bike winding it out to the limits. That is a major complaint I hear when people see/hear them go by.

A 4 cyl. sport bike sounds good, and they are gone pretty quick so you don't have to listen long. A noisy V twin is just irritating and stays in hearing range too long.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
