I would say yes- anything that may possibly save your life is worth it. I just draw the line on open pipes. That's just flat out disturbing the peace.

As a safety tool i will give you the most gracious bennifit of the doubt and say yes ,maybe sometimes it adds safety, to a completely concentrating courteous non distracted driver.

As a lack courtesy its one of the singularly most obnoxious noises on earth.

I have heard a bike behind me, that I wouldn't have seen.

I might have changed lanes if I didn't hear him.

Yes, they can be annoying. Especially when the set off car alarms in their wake.

But your question wasn't about what's annoying.

YES, I believe loud exhausts save lives.

 

There is a "sweet spot" between acceleration, and engine braking.

Easy to find, just twist the accelerator for minimum noise.

That's called "riding easy" (and where the movie got it's name from.)

You get your best MPG there, you get the longest MTBF there, and you don't annoy people.

Loud pipes means it's POSSIBLE to make a racket, it doesn't mean you HAVE to.

Well I had straight pipes on my bike, they were loud, and I can tell you without a doubt they will not stop some stupid distracted kid from crossing the double yellow and driving right into you, all you have to do is look at my prosthetic leg for proof

What? I can't hear you, I'm deaf in my left ear! :freak:

 

No. I think they are a biker's way of getting attention. He's saying, "Look at me! Look at me!" They are very annoying! :scream:

I don't ride, my opinion is that they do not help- why? Because there are stupid people everywhere behind the wheel and handlebar. I saw aguy the other day texting while riding his hog.

Definitely a must in deer country. Otherwise they can be annoying it too loud. My pipes on the HD are stock and just right. Loud enough but not annoying. Some stock pipes on some HD's are way too quiet. Fortunately the '08 Deluxe is just right.

I voted yes.

I have never ridden a motorcycle, but I seen it done once.

Will loud pipes save a riders life all by them selves?

No, no more than blasting your horn in your car if some idiot is coming at you.

 

Loud pipes are just another safety tool in the tool bag.
