It's misspelled. I believe it's a reference to the Matt Damon movie. Jason Bourne.

Also three books written by Robert Ludlum, which are quite a bit different from the movies.

I knew what he meant, but he deserves ridicule for that comment, when the spelling was screwed up like that. Bouren?

Most of the people who end up being bombarded by your noise pose no threat to you. People in their homes trying to sleep, read a book, watch TV, listen to some nice music, do some work, talk on the phone or talk to their family without being interrupted every time some inconsiderate shithead motorcyclist goes by. People in schools trying to listen to their teachers. Patients in hospitals already facing an impossible cacophony of beeps, boops and dings from the telemetry equipment and the psych patients yelling down the hall. A family taking a stroll. Shopkeepers talking to shoppers. Folks at the beach or in their yards quietly taking in the sun. Even the occupants of the vehicles two lanes over or the folks going the other way on a divided highway. None of these people want or deserve the noise you are forcing upon them.


Whenever someone says "I'm light on the throttle in town", my thought is yeah, thanks ... we get full benefit of the noise not living in town.

Some folks have no consideration or common sense when it comes to exhausts or lights, and fail to grasp that they can go too far. The exhaust on my bike is louder than stock, but its not loud.
Sometimes I can hear Harleys and sport bikes going through their gears for at least a mile or more when sitting in our house, that's just selfish.

Now before anyone starts trying to map out my stance, I'll make it clear right in advance. I am one of the most anti- loud pipe people you're going to find here or anywhere else.

But I will also admit that the concept of noise visibility is not a farce. It probably does help somewhat. Denying it, insisting it's useless because the NHTSA never verified it in a scientific study, whatever, is just stupid. There is nothing unreasonable about thinking that if you're making a fuckload of noise, people are gonna hear you and at least some of them might make considerations for you.

Hell, that's the basis for how HORNS work! Something happens, you honk your horn, hopefully you get a reaction. See? Noise... Reaction! Simple, right?

Now when I use the term "you" it is the royal you - the folks here who think loud pipes are a fine and dandy idea. It doesn't have to be you specifically, Eric, unless of course you think it applies...

So the problem with loud pipes on public roadways is, unlike a horn they are always making a racket. So the net effect is they make you a fucking obnoxious piece of shit who doesn't give a shit about the rights of others and has no place living in our society.

And I'm not really saying it to be mean. It's just the way it is.

Would you even dream of having your horn blasting all the time? No of course not. So what makes your exhaust system so special? What makes you feel so entitled?

If you have loud pipes you can attempt to assuage your guilt by saying things like "I tone it down in town". But all that does is make you ever so slightly less of a douche who thinks that people who live near hills or major roads should move so you can feel like your life is going to be saved by your faggy exhaust pipes.

Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. once wrote: "your right to swing your fist ends where my nose begins." You may not see it but that noise you make, that's your fist. And once that noise reaches my ears or anyone else's it is your obligation to pull it back. It is an intrusion and essentially an assault. It is not your right to subject people to it and it is not your right to insist that they be the ones to move, plug their ears, beef up their walls and windows or make any other consideration for it at all.

If you think your life is that much more important than the sanity of everyone around you then you need to find another country to live in. Someplace a little less democratic. Maybe the folks of Afghanistan might put up with your shit.
Very well put!

S.
I have said that. I live out of town, cause I don't like people. When I hear a bike or semi, or car, go buy, I think I need more acres and to live farther from a busy road. Having to see people is one of the costs of civilization.

When I nap during the day, I put ear plugs in.

Isn't it terrible the way intersections always have those quiet Goldwings and BMWs piled up.

As opposed to what?

When the BMW annual meet was in town, people were complaining how much reckless they were, and I believe there was a fatality.

I remember looking and GL was over my shoulder. Obviously you should check. Your crossing the Dakotas you can get complaicent. He can't make me check my mirrors, but I even a little it of volume would help.

I am not old, but when I grew up you could hear cars, and lots of wannabe hot rods had glasspacks. We didn't poop ourselves. I have worked in steel mills and construction sites. So I guess loud noises just upset some of you office guys.

After riding Deal's gap a couple of weeks ago and getting stuck behind some LOUD, slow Harley baggers that did not understand the concept of leaning, I took this very relevant photo of a sticker someone had stuck on a trashcan:




Ironically, there was an enormous group of Harleys parked near this sticker, none of which had the horribly loud pipes. I don't mind Harleys, or most Harley riders... But for every 10 good Harley riders, there is at least one buffoon with the stereotypical attitude or the stereotypical loud pipes. Frustrating.

Same here, I have to confess.
