    As a former MSF instructor and NYC rider, I am not sure "loud pipes" do anything. I agree that most of the sound is behind you and I generally filter through traffic to move slightly faster than surrounding traffic.

    I love the quiet of an electric bike when I am zipping around my dense little neighborhood. My loud V4 Honda makes too much noise, even short shifted for putting around quiet streets.
