Default Re: how loud is an HT from the cager's perspective?

back to the original question, i was riding next to my buddy's car and he couldn't hear my bike with his windows up, and mine's louder than stock.

but i can hear the 3-4 guys who live around here from a block away when they buzz passed my house, and there's one jacka$$ without the baffle i can hear from a mile away.

i've been stopped at lights and had people yelling questions at me about my bike, and i usually have to kill the motor to hear them.

on another note, a buddy of mine who builds custom motorcycles told me they aim their exhaust pipes up now because so many people drive SUV's.
