Re: Loud Pipes Externalize Costs - Tax 'em!

I second the V-Strom 650 review... it's not called my stealth-bike for nothin'. By the time someone hears me buzzing by, I'm already way past them. As a DP bike with "quiet" pipes, on my wee strom I'm able to ride in the pavement and trails around people and animals without upsetting the moment an get some great photos. There's nothing wrong with a nice engine rumble or whine (Ducs, Guzzi's & Triumphs sound great stock, while I like the whine of some fours too), it just doesn't need to sound like an elephant stampede coming down the road.
