Was running some errands today. When I went into the grocery store there was a guy on an H-D bagger that made about as much noise as a stock K75. I swear this guy has aftermarket pipes that are more mellow than stock.

Obviously not a true American. (But I like him anyhow. I get SO tired of the loud pipes crowd.)

I had one go past in the traffic a few weeks ago and didn't even hear it. All the HDs sold here have to be fitted with pipes that are like that but the dealers include a set of loud pipes in the deal but the goons have to fit them. What annoys me most is that if I went out my front gate with pipes that loud I would get booked within 10 minutes but these F***wits get away with it.

I have tryed stock silencers and louder ones, and I really believe it could be annoying to some pedestrians but make our bikes more audible for the car users...and it makes riding motorcycles safer...
