My statements were not simply a matter of personal taste but the product of extensive research. The idea that billions of dollars in the study of Psychoacoysticd by the automotive industry and over a dozen governments will be proven demonstrably wrong when people get used to quiet electrics isn't plausible. If the ongoing research didn't make the point then the fact no historical example exists of a popular movement away from what you call noise. Nobody made a Horseless Carriage that imitated the sound of a horse galloping because despite the persistence of horse metaphors, a car or truck was mechanically different in a way not evident when comparing combustion powered and electric powered motors. There are 3 different electric guitars produced that perfectly recreate the sound of accoustic guitars. They don't sell because there is no compelling reason to prefer one over a natural acoustic guitar. No on argues the electrics don't sound or play well. Cars powered by fossil fuel rail that rationale for numerous reason you well know. When you obviously are intelligent enough to recognize there is a term correctly describing what is being discussed, "psycho" + "acoustics" then you deliberately use a word that mis-characterizes the facts it takes away any motivation to share in good faith. There will certainly be a few people who choose silent vehicles where and when legal to do so just like numerous friends of mine never gave up vinyl records, but the majority of people will continue to listen to digital recordings. As for turning the sound off, I've described a service and product that gives the user complete control of historic motor profiles, contemporary profiles, and an MDK for Hackers/Makers who are naturally moved to sample and modify, or synthesize vehicles vibration and sound. With this comes Virtual Clutch and Gear Shifts that can be adjusted to imitate the "feel" of the real-world Mecha they are based on. Versions will be available for aftermarket integration and home versions for eSport fanatics wanting to game up to that level above and beyond. Anyway, if being teased and given shit by Iron Horsemen didn't discourage me any time in the past 47 years of riding it isn't likely any of your naysaying will make a difference. I just thought there might be an opportunity for real conversation, find cool people ride with. If this is your idea of welcome then fine, I've been riding alone since before you were born.
