I don't like them... would prefer to have them within legal limits, and really hate when asshats rev their vehicles up in the night or other times, just for shits and giggles. but the fact remains... when I am driving they do make the presence of a bike known.





in California we lane split... and there is a whole lot of passing through vehicles blind spots during this act. having an additional sense of hearing helping situational awareness is beneficial. nobody seems to like this fact but the fact remains regardless.

btw I still don't like, appreciate, nor support overly loud exhaust systems.
Been lane "sharing" fer over three 'n a half decades w/ stock pipes, 'n managed ta survive.
The reason fer loud pipes iz mor like the South Park episode; theyz just attention whore fags!

He is demonstrating that he's a folksy man of the people by making a fool of himself in a public forum.

not saying one can't survive without loud pipes. mine are stock and my bike sounds a bit like a singer sewing machine...

that does not allude the fact I witness bikes with loud pipes get more of that attention you mentioned from other vehicles. for the most part in a manner that is conducive to their lane splitting safely.

just because I do not personally "like" loud pipes does in no way negate the fact of the "attention whore" aspect working.

seems we have something in common beside being of the same species and on the internet.

I do have to reel in my need to express things at times ... I can get a bit long winded.

I have an accent. I don't feel the need to misspell words on teh interweb tah makez mah po-eent.

There is only one explanation for it, which is that he/she/it is one of the self-same attention whores he/she/it is so vehemently opposed to.


Also, thank you for the compliment.

That could be funny if:

A) I was a pirate, or dressed in the "pirate"costume to which you refer, or

B) Your post was not spelled like a knick-knack bathroom sign purchased at Cracker Barrel.

Yes some advice. Buy something with fuel injection. A Ural is real 1930's German technology so my apologies to the HD crowd.
