All though I do make sure I ride on the high pipe if I am going through a dangerous intersection. LOUD PIPES SAVES LIVES!!! If you can't see me you sure will hear me!
    I totally agree! I love loud pipes. We took the baffles out of ours.

          Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh I so want a Harley! But I cannot afford one. I am hoping in the next two seasons to get me a V-Rod. Or a Buell I just can not decide. I have promised myself one thing. That if I get on with EPD then after my parole year I will buy myself a V-rod and a R6 so I have the best of both worlds. Kinda of a Congrates to myself!

            Oh....just say NO to the VROD. and if you are going to get a Buell. Please get a Firebolt! Get a softtail Harley. Those are sooooooo nice. I want one BAD! Firebolts are FAST and sharp looking. I don't like any of the other Buells because those headlights look so retarded.

              Why no Vrod? I like the way they look I just haven't done a lot of research on them yet. I do like the soft tails for a crusier bike. But they are a little to big for my taste for intown riding. I like small and manuverable for intown riding! That is what the R6 would be for. Unless I got a buell then That would be differnet! As for the front headlight yea some of them are reatared looking. But that is what a aftermarket faring is for. That will change the whole front end look and new type of headlight!

                I'm just not a fan of the Vrods. You cant really customize them like you can a superglide or a softie. Just an opinion. Sure you can paint the tank. Woo hoo! But there are so many extras you get with other Harleys. But then again. I rather see someone get a Vrod than a sickening Sportster! GOD! YUCK! The 1200's wouldnt be so bad if it wasn't for the small/ugly gas tank. That is what ruins the sportsters in my opinion, the ugly gas tank. UCK!

                  Well I am still up in the air about what I really want. I can look and dream but right now I am not going into another payment untill I am sure where I will be (job wise). I like where I work now but the automoitve industry is to unstable. I want a little job security. One thing is for sure I will ride before I buy! I can't belive the people that spend anywhere from 5000-20000, with out riding it. I want to know what I am getting before I sign the papers!

                    Agreed. People are ignorant. A friend of the family just wrecked his brand new $25,000 Harley. Bought it in like March. Was T-boned by some teenage chic who ran the stop sign, just last week. Wearing NO HELMET! And had no head damage. He is in intensive care right now. Broken legs, arm, and pelvis. But no head damage. Wearing no helmet...Hmm...My dad said he tried to swerve and miss her, but she was talking on her cell phone, not paying attention and it was too late.

                      2003 Harley Road King here. Love it. Also just bought an '07 Wide Glide. Love 'em both, never wear a helmet locally. Wear one all the way to Sturgis and back though.

                        Ya...if I was going on the interstate for a long haul. I would probably wear a helmet. But I dont really like interstate riding.

                              Do any of you have statistics to back this statement up? I cannot stand loud pipes, especially on bikes being ridden by idiots that think they need to go full throttle from a dead stop just to show everyone how loud their pipes are. If I got in my car every time someone with a loud pipe did that in front of my house, I could write at least 10 tickets a day. I love to ride (but am currently bikeless), and I don't mess with motorcyclists...but that is one thing that I will cite for in a heartbeat.

                                The only statistics I have to back this one up is personal experiance! And a lot of them! My bike is not very loud untill 4000 rpm till red line. So I can cruise really nicely with out getting annoying! Here is one personal expericance that comes to mind about loud exhaust saving my life. Riding south on stringtown rd between Mill rd and Buena vista. Came around the corner and made eye contact with a person in a Mercedes convertable looking to pull out of Evansville County Club. She must have look straite through me because she pulled out right in front of me. I grabbed brakes and Down shifted two gears exahust started to roar and she looked up just in time to slow down and swerve. I then throttled up darted into oncoming traffic went around her really quick and went back into my lane of traffic. After I stopped and went back to make sure she was ok. Her exact words were " I didn't see you! I heard your bike but I didn't see you." If she hadn't heard me and stopped I would be splatted on the trunk of that Mercedes! So next time you hear loud pipes remember check out the situation from a riders veiw point. Not all of us are idiots!
