Loud noises combined with cager site attitudes?

Aint no non violent fix for negative road attitudes .
Biker clubs instilled the fear of god instead.
That fixes that kind of stuff rickey tick.

Best kind of oil is what lubes my engine.

What exactly are loud pipes, how many dB are we talking?
From my personal experience, in my F350 if I hear a bike I am looking around. Sometimes I have the stereo up and don't hear it till later but I generally hear a bike with in 50yds. That gives me time to find them unless it is the squid going waaaaayyyyy past the speed limit.
I can hear most stock exhaust.
There are some exhaust that are pretty dickish. When you get echos off the neighbors house, yep you are a dick.

We should require stealth technology on houses so they won't send echo's back. Probably kill a lot of bats that way though.

I don't like loud pipes, I want to hear what the engine is doing.
I figure that if people are stupid enough to drive into semis and trains, loud pipes wont do much to help.

Part of the problem is conditioning. It's the same with the stupid day running lights.
The great unwashed masses get conditioned to only look for lights and not keep their heads out of their collective asses. Now with the bright lights it's only going to get worse.

With loud pipes, if they don't hear anything it ain't there.

If you haven't noticed, I don't have a very high opinion of the general public.
