With the majority of car drivers being glued to their phones while driving, hearing is the only sense that a motorcycle can still draw attention to.

That's quite the footage. Thanks for sharing. I thought that guy in the black truck would never pull over and stop. Apparently he is deaf.

In my work truck (2013 Freightliner M2), with the windows closed, HVAC fan on high, and radio OFF, I can't hear a siren until it's basically right on top of me.

Loud pipes are more of a statement to me. "LOOK-OUT ..Here I come!!!" Not "Can you hear me now?'

I hope everyone realizes this whole "loud pipes..." slogan began as exactly that, a slogan! Probably a catchy line somebody came up with to sell tee shirts. It's a wonder Forest Gump wasn't given credit with coining it!!!

NO, loud pipes do not save lives. Alert, attentive, prepared riders save lives because everyone else is out to kill you everytime you leave the freaking driveway. ...or at least assume they are and you'll live longer.
