Nice article. Personally, I hate loud pipes. The fact is that we motorcyclists are in the minority, and creating a nuisance in public doesn't help our causes. Last week I saw a group of 4 guys on dirt bikes popping wheelies through city streets. Moron squids. Every weekend at about 1 or 2AM some idiots with really loud pipes race down the expressway near my house. Windows closed, quarter mile away on the other side of dense woods and its loud enough to wake the dead. They know there are no cops around (yet), so they're screwing down the road. Idiots. Granted, not all bikers with loud pipes are squids. But they all give the rest of us bikers a bad rep.
