That one always bugged me to. My Shovel can idle (at 500rpms) just fine at long lights, and never misses a beat on takeoff ... With no need to "blip" or otherwise fiddle with the wick.While I am on this rant, what is the deal with blipping the throttle? Do you think the engine is going to cut out if you don't?
Actually, they don't hear you coming. Most of your sound is behind you, and with them in their triple sealed cars, they barely hear an ambulance I know I can barely hear an ambulance when I am in my wife's Buick. I sure can see it though which is why extra lights are more important for being noticed.ive been riding since the 80's always had pipes i could hear , i ve never had a radio on a bike till now and usually wear earplugs anyway , been around guns for too many years , more hearing loss from that than the bikes , I like the sound , plus when the bitches are doing there makeup and reading text messages they hear me coming
In this case they might hear you, but you would have to revving the bike constantly for it to be loud enough.the dick head behind you is still reading his text messages , occasionally looking up to see the light, sometimes without knowing it they move forward , ever been sitting on your bike and car rolls into you??? you go down quick! Loud pipes keep those assholes awake and looking out the windshield instead of on there phones
I understand the fascination... The dizzy drivers in my state will use you as a speed bump if they don't hear you.What you have is what a Harley sounds like.
Personally, I have a hard time distinguishing a loud Harley from a vintage Volkswagen beetle , or a redneck truck.
Oh and I have heard plenty of loud redneck Hondas. Even heard a goldwing with 6 inch straight pipes. Talk about loud!
I guess I just don't understand the fascination with being loud and obnoxious. It will fatigue you faster on a long ride. You can't enjoy the music.

Don't mind me, I am grounded and frustrated.
