Yeah, I just sent it to some of the guys I used to ride with. They'll get a kick out of it too.

One day I was riding with my friend who had a Harley with straight pipes. Frakkin' thing would punch holes through a brick wall just with sonic pressure waves.

I was on my GSXR750 with race pipes. It was loud if I got on the throttle, but I behaved when necessary.

A motorcycle cop blew past me and slipped in behind my friend on the Harley and gave him a ticket for his pipes. I figured he was going to ticket me too, but apparently he couldn't hear the Yoshimura over that Harley's racket.

That was funny. I had a Yamaha V-Star 1100 that would set off car alarms. It's took me about 2 weeks to put in baffles. Still loud, just not earschplitten loud.
