    Poll: How Do You Feel About Loud Pipes?



    'Loud pipes save lives' and 'the louder it is the faster it is' are all phrases you’ve probably heard before, but for a lot of people – particularly the non-riding public – loud exhausts prove to be obnoxious. Which camp do you find yourself in?

    I spent 13 years working with top fuel,pro modified and just regular straight piped Harley's to last a deaf life time. All of my bikes have stock mufflers including the Ultra. Triple-B and the Dub both sport stickers that say " Stock pipes really don't kill People"

    I just spent good dollars on a set of twin slashed pipes for my v twin. even after adding additional baffles, they are still tooooooo loud for me. so I have a really nice looking set of pipes and baffles for sale. it's tough getting old

    I like to hear an engine with a good tone and not obnoxiously loud. My friends bike is so loud I no longer enjoy riding with him. It is deafening at any speed and earplugs don't even help.

    I prefer quiet, noise complaints have already taken enough places away from us. i feel no need to perpetuate this.

    That said my Ducati while not HD obnoxious is kind of loud, or louder than i would like but my pipes are fully baffled and i have a DB killer in it. Its much louder then my TW and not once have i thought that the louder pipe had made another driver more aware of me. I have had more close calls on that Ducati then i have on my TW so for me the "loud pipes save lives" theory is debunked.

    The "Hell's Angel's" that ride past the house every night lately down to their clubhouse and back sure are noisy. Wakes me up every night with those straight pipes. I like my Harley pipes a little loud, but baffled and wrapped tight inside with insulation batting. I think they run better with a little back pressure. I'm too old for loud loud pipes. Save's live's? I don't know...

    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
