As an owner of several LOUD sport bikes and a "Loud motorcycle" guy.... i can vouch on this one. We do indeed love to hear our engines. I have leovince exhaust on my Ducati with the baffles removed, I guess it's just one of those things. I don't do it for annoyance, I just love to hear my engine I try not to do it too much though, since it is pretty damn loud.

Forget the revving engine thing. Why do harley riders wear salad bowls for helmets?

In case you didn't get the memo, nobody else likes it.

Why don't you run those pipes right up next to your ear if you love it so much?

Yeah, it is like they read this thread.

We have a mountain fest in town every year, its around 30,000 harley people ride in and go drink on top of the mountain.

That's the only time I see some real jerks. Most of the people I run into while riding my kawasaki seem pretty nice actually.

My BMW 1100 twin is very fuel efficient and quieter than any Harley I've ever heard. I think a lot of bikers ride to impress each other. I've been a motorcycle owner for 35 years, and I don't put anything between my legs to impress anyone else. I only put something between my legs to impress me...

I do it because I enjoy it. I'm not in your neighborhood. Sorry if it's one of your pet peeves. I'm quite considerate of my neighbors, actually. If it's anytime during the evenings or mornings the 250 comes out of the garage, not the ducati, since it's on stock, quiet pipes, don't wanna wake anyone. Otherwise, if the sun is shining i'll take the ducky for a ride. It's not like i ride around revving my engine. But once in a while it's nice to blip the throttle and hear the engine note. You make it sound as if i'm riding around bouncing it off the rev limiter

BRUBRUBRUBRU! LOL. I suppose the ecomodder forum is a bad place for me to discuss this subject, since I do own several loud vehicles, but not for the attention, mostly to squeeze all the power I can out of the bikes, intake, exhaust, dyno tunes, etc.
