Anyone following me will only hear my bike and feel the beat of the exhausts . Makes you feel you are actually riding something rather than silently gliding along. Of course it adds to the safety as folks can hear you..
What a load of "self justifying" old tosh. All you do with illegal exhausts is piss everyone else off and give easy ammunition to the "anti" brigade..

Funnily enough,when I rode the xt600 and the gpz500 we have as a hack I found I got cut up constantly and car drivers generally acted like their main aim in life was to kill me...but when riding the black bike pictured earlier NO-ONE does it.

Coincidence that the pipes are somewhat loud?

PS I can arrange for a meeting between your arse and an exhaust if you REALLY wish but bring the KY and morphine

Riding with your headlights on all day reduces your chances of not being seen. Wearing Day-Glo bibs reduces your chance of not being seen. Do you Nobbers with loud exhausts do that too? Don't talk crap about loud pipes being a safety issue if you don't take other precautions too. Try living close to a main road when on any sunny day..tossers with loud pipes generally don't venture out in the wet...and see how much sympathy you have with the feckin "power ranger" twats... who, when pulled over for having illegal pipes, plates and visors complain about police harassment.... and keep your funny little threats to yourself....

What a pile of complete and utter shit. The biggest improvement that can possibly be made in road safety is getting car drivers to open their eyes and actually look at what's going on around them rather than building more and more luxurious cocoons for them to drive and feel like small gods in. No amount of dayglo or headlights will change that-and on a bright sunny day dayglo and headlights are actually detrimental to your chances of being seen-they mask your outline.

Incidentally, I am and will never BE a power ranger twat and I think they bring it on themselves.I also live next to a main road and to be quite honest only an intolerant twat would be pissed off by the noise. I'm more pissed off at the 'power rangers' that ride like twats in residential areas.

Oh btw...that wasn't a threat, it was a JOKE. Are we a little uptight?

Absolutely true...unfortunately the "loud pipes save lives" is shite too... do you really think that a car driver inside a nice sound proof car can hear you, loud pipe or not, over their stereo/mobile phone/kids screaming? Don't make loud pipes a "safety issue" it ain't and never will be.

My bike's as black as yours.. matt too... and I dont wear day-glo... my point was don't claim that open pipes are "safer" whilst still taking risks in other areas... visibility/speeding/Etc..it's hypocritical

You may enjoy the feckin' banshee wail hour after hour on a Sunday morning, but I can asure you that not everyone shares your attitude and the noise is becoming a big issue in rural villages everywhere... then we all get to suffer from blanket legislation..

..or perhaps "We" think your idea of a joke needs some work
