Think it won't happen? It's happening right now in the auto tuner and motorcycle realms as we speak.
Yes, This is true for some parts of the country and I Thank You for bringing the issue up. I live in the sticks so its not that big of an issue for me. I put this pipe together just to see what it would do, otherwise it was going in the trash can and I didn't want to waste the opportunity to see what would happen with a shorter stock pipe. On the contrary the argument that "...loud pipes save lives..." is still prevalent in motorcycle realms. So I can see both sides of the issue. I would suggest that all motorized bicycle riders use considerate discretion in regards to the amount of noise the engine produces.
If you hear something that sounds like angry bees in a coffee can, It's me riding my bike.
