We live out in the sticks, many miles from any bar........I think I hear loud sportbikes as often if not more than cruisers. Our road is a dead end, were hearing the bikes on the main road a 1/4 mile away.
To all those folks who say they keep the noise down in town, we here you loud and clear out in the sticks, noise doesn't respect "acreage" and trespasses all the time.

I recently decided to take my V-Star out of storage and fix it up, so I have been checking out some of the appropriate forums. Its pathetic to see how many how-to posts there are dedicated to making the exhaust loud for no reason other than to make it loud.

Here's a quote from a how-to in the "tech" section of one forum,

"Before I did this modification I
would wait until these admirer's left before turning her over. Now I
push the starter, and watch heads turn."

Truly sad that he doesn't realizing they're only looking to see who the noisy asshole is.
