Do you make a lot of noise on purpose?

Do you make a lot of noise on your motorcycle?

Since I ride a 125 I don't make a whole lot of noise, especially if I shift betwen 6-7k RPMs. I have the option of making a lot of noise if I let it get closer to 8k RPMs before I shift, though. Depending on the mood I'm in, I can have a very loud ride or a very quiet ride.

One thing I have been noticing though, is that by making an aggressive amount of noise you inform other vehicles about your location. When people hear the "bruuuuuuuuuuuummmmmmmm, bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuummmmmmmmmmmmmmm" sound outside their vehicle they immediately start driving cautiously until they figure out where its coming from. I've been discovering that I can use aggressive amounts of noise to clue cagers in to my location and subsequently control them.

Additionally, it can be a lot of fun to make some noise! Its what men excel at (yes, I know how much this ties into the South Park episode I just posted about but I ride a sportbike, not a Harley ).

Does anyone else do this? Do you ENJOY doing this?

My whole mo in having a BMW or Honda is ... a very quiet motorcycle. I do not like noise. It gives me a headache.
On any bike there is much noise, wind, other cars, trucks, etc. And my whole mo in life is ... peace, quiet, relaxation, serenity.
There is just so much noise in the world as is, I don't need any more.

I tend to gun the engine when I'm fairly certain the vehicle next to me at a light doesn't know I'm there. Like I've said before I would rather have them think "what an idiot" rather than tell the officer "I didn't even see him!" as the ambulance drives away slowly.

My bike is very quiet, but I tend to talk to myself about stupid drivers...now with a microphone in front of my face...I hear..."are you talking to me?" "I see your mouth moving but I can't hear anything" in my headphones....he is so lucky that he doesn't hear everything I say! LOL....does this count for being noisy???

But I am planning to get a new set of pipes next summer...something a tad louder..so that people can hear me! Not like "southpark" though....that was funny....

In a neighborhood I try to keep the noise down as much as possible. If I'm out on the road and I think that someone isn't paying attention or doesn't see me, they will for sure hear me.

I don't depend on the engine to make noise. I use the horn if needed to warn other drivers. I work hard to limit the time in blind spots as much as possible.

I think noise as a safety factor is highly overrated. I have noticed in my cage that I never hear motorcycles coming up from behind till I can see them. Now once they are in front of me and sometimes beside me I can hear them.

No... and no.

Flashing the headlights and using the horn are more effective for warning motorists. The throttle and brakes are more effective for getting out of dangerous situations.

Yeah, engine noise runs behind the bike, not in front of it, so they hear that too late.
If you want to be heard as a warning, at the light, pull up where they can see you. Up far in front of the other cars. They will see you, and you should always be first off the light anyway. The cars expect that from you, they wait for you to go first.
Or, for a warning, flash the brights, or get one of these super horns, Steben? like a semi truck horn. BEEEEP. Then they see you.

No there are way too many loud bikes out there, I have a stock exhaust and I wish my bike were a bit quieter.

A couple of months ago I was part of a huge group ride (400 bikes) as you can imagine there were more than a few LOUD bikes in the group, there were a couple of tunnels that we went though and of course the loud riders had to rev their engines, even with my full face helmet on it was so loud I briefly lost some of my vision until we cleared the tunnels, it scared the crap out of me.

How did you lose your vision from loud noise?

I run stock pipes as well, which is a rarity.

I also installed a 125 decibel horn on the bike soon after purchase. They should come stock.

It was weird, my vision suddenly became darker and the edges (peripheral vision) went black.

I've been exposed to plenty of loud noises, used to work in the engine room when I was in the Navy but nothing ever like that.

You might want to have that checked out. I don't think sound will do that. It sounds like the effect you get from high Gs, just before blacking out. Worth a doctor visit.

A very long time ago I was a motor cop with the CHP. Now speaking of noise and warning drivers, here is what happened to a friend of mine, mistake on his part. He went to pass a car on the right, had red lights on and no siren, tapped his siren as he went to pass the car. The driver made a immediate lane change, you guessed it, to the right and ran my buddy off the road. Truth is it was my buddies fault. Noise can sometimes startle drivers, now I realize a siren is excessive but my point is not to startle a driver with excessive noise. Of course we use to go through East LA at 4:30 to 5:30 in the morning with lights and sirens on just to wake up the gang bangers.

I would say my bike is kinda loud, but nothing like some straight pipes on a harley. Now when I get in the higher RPMs it gets loud, but like someone said earlyer, thats mainly to get out of a blind spot..........or when no ones around and I wanna hall balls.

I saw some old lady in traffic that had a loud bike, and man she was cool. She had to be around 60 and she had an old Harley that looked as old as her, with some big ole bags, tall handle bars(not ape hangers just tall), and straight pipes. It was right as traffic was backing up and she freekin owned the raod man, she was cool!

My exhaust is a little louder than stock, but not so loud that even at idle or light cruise, it's an annoyance for those around me. When appropiate. I take it easy on the throttle. But when I'm in a spot where it's not gonna wake the neightborhho, I like to crank her a bit.

My pipe is quite loud but I don't make alot of noise on purpose. I have noticed when I gun it or just putt along around 3000rpm with a loud BLABLABLABLABLA noise people tend to pull over :S im not sure why, but its lovely when they get out of my way.

Sometimes. It's fun at times. I have strait pipes on a 1602cc vtwin. I like the sound it makes. However I don't do it in places where it's going to cause problems. Not all people with loud pipes are out to make others miserable for the 4 seconds they're coming and the 4 seconds going.

When my bf and I ride together...his bike is way louder than mine....we pull up to a light and someone will be talking on a cell phone, he sits there and revs it until they stop talking on the cell or the light changes....I think that is funny!


Oh and he makes fart noises when we shop at the grocery store and someone bends over....omg...so embarrassing !!!

Oh and as to the original topic, no I don't make a lot of noise on purpose, but then my bike isn't that loud to start with. I was riding to work yesterday and a guy on a newer black 650 was beside me, I could barely hear his bike and he had a pipe on it. He got on it from time to time too. Guess its just not a loud bike...

I've a Two Bros. slip-on that's quite a bit louder than the stock can but it's not obnoxious unless you give it full throttle. Doesn't make your ears bleed the way a straight-pipe does.

I usually never even think about how loud my bike is when im riding it.... I just ride the thing and whatever comes out of the pipes comes out... although my bike isnt anywhere as loud as an HD with straight pipes...

Sometimes when im in the wall mart parking lot or the lot at work where theres people or cars close to me i'll rev up my bike to make sure they know im there (dont want to collide with any of them) but thats it.... I never do it to show off.... (I do the same thing with my car.... I usually rev it a couple times before backing out of a parking spot so people look and see im backing up)

by horn barley works on my bike btw......

My brother and I sometimes play the revving game at lights, side by side. He revvs his Nomad 1500 with V&H aftermarket pipes, then I revv my CB350. No contest. It was funny at Biketoberfest. Roaring lion vs. sewing machine. lol

I honestly like the low rumble of a twin...It could help also to get noticed, If they can't see me they could hear me and get me out of trouble, now I'm not saying that I have a loud bike just because of that, Principally because I love the sound!

I have had Honda V twins. They purr like a kitten. Very quiet. Just like I like.
The noise of a motorcycle is behind it. Not in front.
