True , although at a vintage show at the dealer in Tulsa a guy almost ran over me on his Zero , never heard him coming Dusty
THIS^^ Will be interesting to see if e bikes are involved in more incidents. I still think I will have one someday.
Autoweek just published an article debunking the safety impact on loud pipes - they DON'T save lives: https://www.autoweek.com/news/industry-news/a35952569/loud-pipes-do-not-save-lives/Enjoy the sound and performance but don't think you're any safer...
Loud pipes were never meant to save lives...they were meant to annoy others, same as unnecessary throttle blipping at a stoplight...if it annoys others around you...mission accomplished.
Plenty of municipalities have noise or dance laws. It boils down to do police spend their time tracking down the exhaust bandits or spending time on more violent crimes. As a tax payer I know where I’d prefer their time and my money be spent.
I got Agostinis on my Bobber. I love the sound.
not necessarily a proponent of loud pipes, but also not a proponent of this form of testing and reporting.be careful of how you take this.Test was only looking at a driver in a car with radio on and windows rolled up. (some people have windows down, some people don't listen to the radio)Test did not take into account pedestrians in the streets or crossings. (not all accidents are bike / car )Test did not consider deer crossings on back roads. ( I can personally state that the sooner a deer or moose hears you the better change you have to not die )Test did not review farm equipment operators entering roadways. (again, the sooner a farmer knows your coming, the better chance you have not to be combined )This test was also taken in a location that could be considered "over-controlling" ( just sayin )So to make a blanket statement, "loud pipes DONT saves lives" by this test metric, is not a very responsible solution statement. it's a bit of "fake news"
There is a legal measurement for how loud any exhaust on a registered vehicle can be, the “decibel range”. It’s only an issue when the sound exceeds that maximum legal range, which is plenty lenient in my state. In and around my area LEO pays little to no attention to the law.
I live near a "Crashed Toys" shop, Loud pipes didn't save most of the mangled bikes I see there.
I can testify that the deer around here hear me coming and they stop crossing the road when they do so.
