I always figured the louder the pipes the smaller the "pipe", if you get my drift.

I too suffer in my neighborhood from the loud Harley jerks and one guy with a Dodge pickup (gas) I can hear, or really kinda feel, idling every morning at 0430, in the winter he starts it 20-30 mins early to "warm up".
BTW this guy is several hundred yards away, I really don't see how how his immediate neighbors stand it....

Don't even get me started on the big rigs with no mufflers and engine brakes, usually an independent who apparently sold his mufflers to buy a hundred marker lights and a big [censored] windshield visor...

Wrong attitude. People shouldn't have to go to these extremes (having to wear ear plugs or buy up the neighborhood just so you can stand the live there is extreme). I say file a noise abatement complaint with the police on the inconsiderate a-holes. File enough complaints and the cops will have to do something about it...

The small town I'm working in today has posted signs at seemingly every entrance into town: NO ENGINE BRAKE by City Ordinace XXXXXXX

Given the amount of local police, county sherriff's deputies, and state troopers I see on my way in, I think they are enforcing it.

Of course he can't. That would make his Harley Davidson branded sandals (made in China of course) bend backwards in the wind.

Depends on the ordinance of a particular area. In most places I know of, they aren't legal...

Harley owners want their bikes loud so they sound like something they're not....fast and powerful....

Here is what a proper small displacement engine sounds like, Honda what? BRM was doing it before Honda motors was a dream.

I have been next to these cars in the pits, the camera doesn't do it justice. See the guys plugging their ears? Its so loud you feel it, hearing anything is impossible. Talking involves shouting.

Honda knew. Soichiro Honda was just geting started when British Racing Motors was at their peak. But he didn't just sit idly by.

Maybe not to the extent of 16 cylinders but howzabout a 250cc DOHC 6 cylinder?



Or a 32 valve V-4?
