This is what I have (wooooomp wooooooomp), and for the most part, you are right. the SHAME is GREAT.


Tapping it to keep nosey cagers from pulling out in front of you works VERY well though

so- to be more general- loud noise can be effective when out in heavy traffic?

whether that be a loud exhaust or a train horn.

train horn does sound cool though

My $0.02 - a loud exhaust is more likely to make you the target of some irritated redneck than make you more noticeable to distracted drivers.

You've just gone in a circle. You thanked me after I mentioned the time it takes for your revs to be identified. If someone's coming into your lane and you are going to take the time to chuck revs, wait for them to identify where you are... you've lost the time you could have used to save yourself.

Stop treating every disagreement as some sort of insult. In another thread you called everybody stupid, now they're trolls. Welcome to the Ignore List. Have a nice day.

This is the first time I've ever heard the term "chuck revs".

That's all I got. Oh. Well I usually went with horn at the same time As taking evasive maneuvers.

My SuperDuke has a very loud exhaust. Starting it inside a garage is painful. It serves no purpose whatever in alerting people ahead of me that I am approaching. It may have a small beneficial effect when I am next to a car, but I make it a practice to spend as little time as possible in anyone's blind spot, so the net effect is minimal.

I have used it to bark a couple of times, but that usually scares the driver as they look around wondering what it was.

When people try to race me up the 2-into-1 onramps, and lose, I suspect it only adds to their disdain of me and all other motorcyclists.

Video of the Remus can for reference as compared to stock (not my video):

your just one of the many people who would like to argue just to argue rather than play devils advocate and see it both ways.


how much extra time dose it to chuck some revs while i am already disengaging the clutch and grabbing front brakes to avoid the douchbag in front of me who doesn't deserve side mirrors?


it takes no extra time, since i know you would like to say otherwise.

pretty common term in the north east, as is having looud bikes. maybe its different in colder climates where bikes only come out for 4 months most of the time, but any advantage is an advantage in my neck of the woods.

JD is the real troll, acting like the good guy calling other people out for being trolls but arguing more than anyone. GotFZ1 you better respect him! He's a moderator in training hahahahahah

But what do I know, I'm the dumbass who hit an oil patch in freshly wet pavement. I can't be trusted. I'm a squid.

Yep. My only point of contention is that revving or noise will save your life. They might help and don't hurt but it's the evasive maneuvers (which for me often don't involve clutching in) that will save your life. Last time I checked the deaf could still get licenses in all states and the rest can run DVD players with the latest motogp race turned up to 11.

So, it's the loud pipe that saved you, not the clutching in and pulling the brakes?? I get that the pipe doesn't hurt (though some people may argue it does), but I think the evasive maneuver you took with the clutch and brakes is what saved your ass, because they still don't know where the noise came from you made at the same time.
At this point we're mostly arguing semantics.... but if I had to choose between being silent and having evasive maneuvers, and being loud and a sitting duck hoping the noise works..... I'm gonna be the quiet one moving around.

I can blast 130dB horn while simultaneously engaging clutch, front brakes, downshifting, rev marching, and preparing to evade- all in about 1sec.

And my yosh sounds great and not too loud ��

You forgot using the rear brake, the nasty look, raising eyebrows and yelling in the helmet! Anything you can do to be noticed is useful and I regularly practice all those simultaneously (I am good at multitasking)

One day in the not too distant future, the whole exhaust topic will be a moot point. All hail electric torque!

I say we start a contest to see who can mod their bike to be as quiet as an electric.

Still working on a compact phase cannon that can vaporize metal. I will let you know when it is completed. ;)

Some high end BMWs already have a sound system that generates noise for the cabin passengers because the car is otherwise so quiet. I can see aftermarket systems to make your electric bike sound like a gas powered one in the not too distant future.

They need this for outside the cabin too -- for pedestrians. Loud pipes and vehicles save pedestrian lives!

One of the first GM EVs nearly took me out walking in a parking lot in the 90s. And, now it's happening again with all these new evs. Watching the documentary Who Killed the Electric Car? is completely different now
