Seriously … it's not loud motorcycles that are creating traffic hazards and unpleasantness. It's not motorcycles that are being built on the mountains and destroying the beauty of this region. It's not loud motorcycles that are crowding us with obnoxious, aggressive behavior.
I love the sound of loud motorcycles. To me it is the sound of sweet music. The thrill of motorcycles is my passion, not some distant phase that I had to get out of my system.
I have ridden motorcycles for over 13 years, and I can tell you from experience that loud pipes have prevented dozy drivers from merging into my lane without looking, on more than one occasion. I don't care about statistics. If a driver can hear it, they are a little more cautious, and the way people drive around here, "a little more" goes a long way.
If you live by a road, you will hear traffic. Sorry. Hey, perhaps we can make every annoying thing illegal, like crying babies and bad body odor and even tacky bright clothing. American people, come on.
