Hell no, let's go. I'm ready. In all honesty, I don't believe the argument can be proven 100% either way. I do believe that a loud pipe can alert a cage operator to your presence. Please note the operative word here is "can", I did not say "will" or "does". And I have proven my theory; with a downshift and a throttle blip, I have twisted a few cager's necks. Yes, I could have probably achieved the same result with my meep-meep horn, but I would much rather hear my pipe than that anemic thing.
Besides, a horn is usually used to indicate trouble of some sort, and I don't care to piss off my brethren in their duallies.
Again, I am not of the mindset that believes you have to have a loud pipe to stay alive. But I cannot agree that a loud pipe does nothing more than annoy the neighbors and alert the cops.
We can argue this topic until the day we die, but that's never stopped us before, right?. Here's my key point: there are times when a loud pipe does add to the safety factor, and times when it doesn't. So, have an open mind, just not too open.....or your brains will fall out.
