Why would you want to do that? :p

Seriously, I've had stupid loud exhaust on previous bikes but now I'm conscious I may be spoiling someones Sunday coffee on King Street. Then I'm fast becoming an old fart I guess!

Not sure I really get the idea now a days of bikes being, at times offensively, loud.

I think I should probably get my coat!

The main reason on the motorway commute they might hear you beside them. Also I live on the Gold Coast and pedestrians just stroll across the road texting having no idea a bike is coming. I'm not talking HD straight pipe cowboy loud.

Personally quiet exhaust for me is the way to go. If loud exhaust really helps save lives then why don't we see a huge number of GoldWing fatalities? You're better off driving like you're invisible and investing in a much louder horn.
I once read Statistically 80% of the dangers come from the front, and something like 7 from the rear So it is only helping you about 10%.
