Not to be a jerk about an accident and the injuries.......

Twice, I have had riders on bikes with loud pipes not realize I was right next to them (in the other lane) in my car, and start to change lanes into me. They couldn't hear a fucking thing and they weren't looking either. One guy didn't have any helmet on at all so not like he could blame "restricted vision". Since in both cases I had come up from behind them, I already saw them without need for the stoopit pipes.

Yep. Turning your head away clearly indicates to the other driver that you are not in the game, and they act accordingly.
