I am glad I live nowhere near a road that modified bikes use.... but I know someone who does, and it's a nightmare. There is no such thing as a peaceful lunch in the garden in the summer - it's continuous.

Bikes or cars, for me it's more to do with the quality of the sound rather than the volume. A boring engine with loud pipes is just boring and loud. But e.g. an old Vincent or a 90s Ducati sounds wonderful without needing to be oppressively loud.
Agreed
This is the point. Harleys with silencers sounds like a horrible stty piece of industrial plant. A Harley with no silencers is the same, just obnoxiously loud.

And this has nothing about disliking the sounds bikes make. When I grew up loved the sounds of Kettles, Guzzis and Japanese multis.

Today still love hearing a good twin, triple or 4.

A Harley is not an aircraft, and the local roads aren't runways. Apart from that, an absolutely spot on bit of reasoning.

Irony meter blown.

Everyone does get on minding their own business - until some ape on a bike comes within earshot and making a fk load of noise.
No one would know the bikes were there, until the loud pipes ....

Would you like to wager on who will win out ? The Bikers will be allowed to continue, or the previously mentioned 90% vote get them banned?

Are planes modified by their owners to make as much noice as possible.... ?




orrrrrrrrrrrrr are plane owners seeking ways to make their planes quieter, so they are deemed less obnoxious, and they will be granted leniency in operations ?

..and the Pilot doesn't deliberately make his plane louder purely for the attention.

There's that word again. Why is there this obsession that people think aftermarket exhausts are only fitted for "attention". Could it not be that the owner likes the look or sound?

If they like the sound so much why do they wear earplugs?

Because they could look the same but be quieter (not that you can see the exhaust when you're riding anyway), they could even have the same sound but at lower volume.

The protect their hearing from wind noise which is the biggest issue when riding.

A little while back one of the guys that worked for me discovered motorbikes. Mid 40s, you know the story.

He also discovered moto-vlogging and had a few videos of his own up on YouTube.

At the time he was riding an XSR700 and during one of his vlogs he commented that having a quieter exhaust made him feel – and I quote – “less of a man”. Really.

Nowadays he runs a Tuono and a Dorsudoro, both with un-baffled Akrapovich systems.

Can’t think why.
