Sound Off: Motorcycle mufflers

My husband and I ride, and we understand the concern that too many people are so involved in everything but driving when they drive that they don't see motorcycles. Heck I drove a full size red pickup truck that distracted drivers never saw. But, that's not a good excuse for the loud pipes. Best advise to riders, always ride like you are invisible, because to most people you are (regardless of how loud your bike is). Loud pipes are attention getters, but it's not the attention you profess it to be. It's just annoying.

The solution to the problem is all drivers should pay more attention to their surroundings when they drive. Good luck that will never be accomplished, cars/trucks are so simple to drive and full of distractions, and too many people are too self absorbed to care.
