I think it's you have lost the plot.

The rest of us are discussing the benefits or otherwise of having loud
exhaust pipes.

I think pretty well everyone here in knows this.

Some of us are even awake, at times, on a good day with a following wind.

Viewed in the context of most states in Oz would happily ban motorbikes
altogether, if they thought they could get away with it, I personally,
can't see having noisy, non standard exhausts is something worth going
to the barricades over.

I always wondered why the car drivers in "Mad Max" didn't just do a little
swerving when surrounded by Toecutter's gang...

From your anecdotal evidence, which bikes did you have loud pipes on
and which did/do you have quiet pipes on?

'08 DL1000K8 - Stock pipes, but equipped with 139dB airhorns which make
plenty of noise on demand.
