Had loud pipes on my Harley Davidson Heritage Classic, people didn't ride close behind me in formation. Long rides I would have to shut off my hearing aids. Love my quiet Goldwing.

I'm not a fan of really loud pipes like my idiot neighbor on his fat boy. A little rumble, is fine but don't want to go overboard.

If loud pipes save lives, just think what actually learning how to ride would do...

Not a fan and find them annoying, especially the really loud ones. Yet I respect anyone's right to have them and if it makes them feel safer by thinking it helps to alert others to your presence then so be it...to each their own...

To each their own, but personally I like the smooth and reasonably quiet song of my 1800. One of my sons has a Fat Boy with drag pipes and it is awfully loud, but I am still willing to ride with him. My other son has a '97 Valkyrie with a really sweet 6 into 6 exhaust, and despite being a little on the louder side, it is nothing like his brother's Fat Boy.

I like to hear the stereo and the intercom, so no loud pipes for me, thanks.
