I can understand why the author would be angry at the bikers in his story. They were just jerks.

However, I am somewhat hesitant to say "we should not allow loud pipes". The thing is, what one person considers "loud" another person considers "not so loud". Regulations should mandate a specific decibel level at a specific distance. It should not be a subjective standard.

Incidentally, some of these pipes are just stupid to have on your bike. Yeah you want it to be louder than a car, but "volume" and "coolness" are not synonyms. I could take the muffler off of my 2000 Ford Taurus, and it would be damn loud. But that would make me a jackass, not a badass.
