:them: :them: :them: Read the article too. Totally biased.JD_V-Rod said:sorry, but I cannot agree with this... sounds like some tree-hugger argument against loud pipes... next thing they will say is contrasting colors dont help cause cagers are color blind....
ANY THING that lets cagers know you are around is a good thing... end of story.

Personally, I don't like the loud pipes, they are just flat obnoxious to me. It is one reason I don't do group riding, because the constant blatt and drone of unmuffled pipes if I am behind one is annoying.
I'm sure this is one of those subjects you'll never get all sides to agree on, but for my part the only thing loud pipes accomplish is noise pollution.
