Anyone who has ever passed a LOUD bike knows that it is far louder behind the bike than in front of it.

Add that new cars are pretty effective at blocking outside noise, and a stereo even at lower volumes, and the loud pipes arguement just doesn't wash.

I also do not believe high viz does much, though I do have a set of conspicuity lights on my bike, I doubt they help much either.
