Are you Zerks fake n00b? If not then Zerk and I enjoy the banter back and forth in this and other threads. If you don't like my posts then you are free to not read them. I (and I believe Zerk) like the banter.

Big deal, I did the same trip on a Thumper wearing MX gear and I froze my fucking ass off the entire time... does that make me cool or do I need more?
Just making the point I didn't join this forum, just to argue with Dakez.

Also making the point, that cruisers, actually baggers, and pirates ride.

A Pirates Journey to the Arctic Circle, was the working title of my journal.

Obviously you haven't been following this thread very long.

Loud pipes don't save lives, quite pipes don't save lives. Exhaust systems are not safety devices. Noise is just noise.

Want to be safe? Try riding within your skill level and practicing these skills used by professional drivers.

Aim High In Steering,
Get The Big Picture,
Keep Your Eyes Moving,
Leave Yourself An Out,
Make Sure They See You,

As a professional driver, I have participated in countless driver safety classes, not once has making constant obnoxious noise been mentioned as a safety tool.

Any cognizant adult will see LPSL for what it is, a lame excuse for narcissistic behavior.

It's funny that you mention that, I have driven commercially since 1982, when the CDL A was just a Combination Lic. In the 29 years I have never had a ticket or accident. I have driven/operated almost everything, with the exception of triples.

I have seen it all and as of today, almost heard it all to boot.

Common sense is, unfortunately, NOT COMMON.

As a professional you should know better, advocating LPSL for safety is like a doctor recommending treating cancer yourself with herbs.

Not quite the same. Better analogy would be a doctor recommending herbs for the potential, but, unscientific, chance of reducing the development of cancer.

As a professional I know what has worked for me, but may not work for you which has been shown that we agree to disagree in reference to loud pipes vs skill and fate.

My opinion is that anything and everything helps. I am not a advocate for straight pipes or noise pollution that gets everyone's attention as they/it passes bye.

The two Brothers M5 exhaust on my DL1000 is the middle of the road. Not stock, not straight but gives just the right amount of sound in my opinion to add to what you have mentioned " A false sense of Security " but it works for me.
