Why are motorcycles so loud?
Bikers claim noise is a safety feature. It isn’t.
Motorcycles exceed all noise limits acceptable in civil society not for safety reasons, but because many motorcycle riders are assholes.
Seriously, a lot of bike riders really value absurdly loud bikes because they like the sound and really, fuck anyone else.
There are two classes of riders which are dominated by assholes: Harley Davidson riders and squids.
