Loud pipes save lives !

Recommended Posts

You never hear the round that slots you. Situational awareness is key.

The premise that someone should have heard you coming is a nonsense. Groan, groan.

Loud pipes  pee off the neighbours and give everyone a headache...simply look at me look at me attention seekers 😩

Only the hoons - there is a happy medium which can be achieved.

I have permanent tinnitus  now due to years of using loud exhaust on my previous bikes. Never again, especially on a single cylinder. 

 

I even use ear plugs now to reduce noise (wind and engine) when riding; it helps me focus better when riding, plus I'm less tired afterwards.

When I had a loud pipe on my Cagiva I did ride a bit slower in town so maybe they are safer...🤔

Small single cylinder engines were built to get from A to B quietly and efficiently!

They were never intended to sound nice or be "racing" machines!

They tend to sound like cement mixers on steroids!

I could never understand why someone who enjoys riding, also enjoys extra loud engine noise to go with it? A nice quiet bike is a pleasure.  Teenagers OK, I get that, but not adults.

In some aspects of life growing up is highly overrated ... 😉
