I like the loud rumble of a well tuned,hi performance motor.i HATE loud pipes that are loud just for the sake of being loud(real wanna be sh!t!!)
I did those same things when I was a kid. Some things never change
Is that a fact Mike Zyler in Renton Washington, email address [email protected] and using Comcast to make threats by digging up a 7 year old thread on a public forum?Really? What kind of a hole are you? Do you orgasm watching sons of anarchy? Did ya blow a load during that Texas bike gang shoot out? I run you animals off the road as many times as I can, I make it my job. Have some respect! Don't blow through neighborhood streets do a double vroom vroom at the intersection, I realize you need to keep your momentum, but if you're not flying you wont need it. You will fly when I fish line the neighborhood.
What about terrorising kids and animals? A-Ok?I ran loud pipes my whole life and love it!!because it pisses people off set off car alarms,Its great for passing by open windows,never a ticket its how you ride it.
And most importantly Loud Pipes save lifes!!
Havin em saved my ass numerous times. Its all a personal preferance do what you want who gives a fugk what anyone thinks your bike is about you not anyone else.
popicock, i run open cans and have never pissed off anyone. it does piss me off that you think i should be insulted by doing it in a way you don't approve of. if i wanted wimpy exhaust i would buy a goldwing. zeez man take a chill pill.Well, since you asked, don't do it.
You admit to being new and seek advice, so don't take offense at being told the truth.
Loud pipes destroy your hearing with a quickness, piss off the cops, piss off your neighbors
and make people in traffic want to knock you off your bike.
...and it marks you as an obnoxious and immature noobie and a dumb-ass.
Especially since anybody who knows anything about motorcycles will know
that you deliberately suffered a loss of performance in order to be offensive.
It's an expensive mod, pipes that will hold up are very expensive and pointless.
Why don't you suppress this urge for awhile, see if you don't decide in time
that it wasn't really such a good idea after all.
A quieter bike performs better, and you get to ride it harder
because everybody in the county doesn't know when you open up the throttle.
And if you don't listen, I'll give you $25 for your Screaming Eagle mufflers.
BTW there's a good tutorial here about opening up the baffles on those pipes,
it'll get just a little louder and in a less obnoxious way, and save you a lot of money.
awe comon, open em up and live a little. it's not really a free country any more but it's closer than most places. people that bitch about other people are just afraid that someone else is having fun. have some yourself while you still can.Loud pipes do not save lives!!!
OK, to all you attention whores...
Quit using it as an excuse to draw attention to yourself, just like a 16 year old girl.(South Park f-word episode) And no one thinks you're bad ass or tough, just a another loser that needs attention.
I've been riding for over 20 years and have never had a problem that made me think, it could have been avoided if I had loud pipes.
In fact, the number one cause of motorcycle accidents is someone turning in front of you in an intersection traveling the opposite direction...how are your loud pipes going to avoid that situation?
I think loud exhaust sounds cool too, what guy doesn't, like at Nascar races. But, I chose not to have my enjoyment interfere with someone else's serenity and their enjoyment.
You also say, it's only for the minute that you're driving by. But, what you don't realize is that when it happens hundreds of times a day, it's no longer an isolated incident, it's constant noise.
This is one human to another, begging you, please have consideration for others and evolve from the loud chest thumping to a civilized society.
