Controversial? I dunno
Maybe I'm getting old...
I did use to have crazy loud pipes on a 748 and never really thought much about how loud it was - I was wearing ear plugs after all!
So maybe I just have more empathy...
I'm not saying I don't like a 'nice sounding' exhaust and I guess that may mean this post is on very subjective grounds but I think it's really annoying sitting outside a cafe having to pause conversations while a bike goes past with a very loud pipe.
I want to upgrade mine from stock eventually but will be keen to listen to whatever I decide to stick on before I do.
Am I on my own with this train of thought. Should I be banished from the forum
