The fact that you believe in the philosophy that loud bikes are safe bikes just goes to show how little you do know. Sound waves travel in a straight line, with the wave widening as it moves from the source. The waves do not magically loop around to the front of the bike. The loud exhaust can only be heard from behind the bike. Reflections of the wave can be heard at other locations. You hear the loud exhaust after the bike passes you, not as it approaches you.

Essentially bikers like to pull the "loud bikes are are bikes" card out to try and not appear to be complete tools.

Oh and about those loud exhaust tickets; it did not cost me a dime to hand them out and you are going to have to do a lot better that call me names to hurt my feelings.

Thirdly, just to fire you up a bit more, this "simple-minded dolt" is currently collecting a generous pension from his police service and a salary from his current employer, who also offers a pension and 401K.

If that makes me a simple-minded dolt I can live with that.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!
