Well I've never seen sport bikes or dual sports running straight pipes so who else is there that does???

You were not in the discussion a few days ago, or you just choose to not remember it? I can't keep track.

But damn, there are lot of loud dirt bikes.

Probably less then 10% of cruisers have straight pipes.

Crotch rockets can be loud as hell too.

Seems like you got your head in the sand.

Yes. I already did, you guys can't read??? I got my picture taken on the Haul road at the Arctic Circle. If you want to be a rider, you got to ride a bike.

Yes I was wearing chaps at the Arctic Circle.

Been reading your responses and I find the continued mention of your trip to the haul road funny, talk about a two fisted street cred grab
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?

Catch 22 if you ask me.

The 1 question I would like the LPSL crowd to answer,
is it really all that fun to stay at the YMCA?
Do you have anything to offer, other then attacking people with "They need to get a life" that would say that quiet pipes save lives ?

All chaps are assless or they would be pants.

These type of responses from Dakez are what I would consider "utterly fifth grade and pathetic".

Dakez, is that all you have to offer your own thread. Altering other peoples responses, in the hopes to incite an argument or negativity.
