there's an @$$ hole that lives about 5 houses down from me. he rides a CBR or something similar... he sees me working on my little rat rods all the time, so when he rides by my house, even at 4 in the morning, he makes it a point to rev the hell out of his motor.......
or.. fly down the street on his back wheel.
or one time donuts in front of my house.
oddly enough, there's a guy with a mustang saleen that does the same thing every time he passes my house because i have a camaro sitting in the garage.
i've never talked to either of these people...... both of them annoy me to no end.
With that said. my car is louder than either of my bikes. i have to admit, when i have the T-tops off and i happen to drive under a bridge, i have to give it a little punch, or, if there are some hot girls walking down the street, i downshift etc...
but i'm not an @ss about it 99% of the time.
However, there are times where being loud can actually save you. some lady almost ran me off the road when i was in my car a week or so ago on the highway. i saw her coming and shifted to third and floored it. it woke her up and she got back into her own lane.
It feels good to have a bunch of power under you at your disposal whether you use it or not. Sometimes you need that feeling of having a cool toy, and need the sound to remind you of exactly how cool it is. lol
with that said though, there are a lot of bikes that have sounds i can't really get into. i dont personally like the crotch rocket sound, or the sound of indy cars, ricers with fart pipes, lamborghinis etc.. too high pitched. sounds to me like a ****ed off yappy dog.
I prefer the sound of an american V8, or a motorcycle that sounds similar. with that said, i don't particularly care for the sound of harleys either.. But a lot of the newer V-twin bikes that have come out over the last few years DO sound really good. like the Honda Chopper that's out now. i almost wet myself when one of those flew by me the other day. those are bad bikes.
