Agreed. I found that looking out for yourself and being seen is far more important than a loud muffler. I have tested a Buell Firebolt. I found the exhaust to be louder than my R6 In my opinion it is sound quality that is important over loudness. A stock Buell, even a stock Harley, has great sound quality.

True, my buddy rides a stock XB9 and it sounds and runs great. My Dyna is also stock with 88dba 49 state legal Harley Accessory slash cuts, Sounds and runs great. Why waste money screwing up a good running bike?

Because it's cool and STUFF! Wailing down the road, shattering glass and backfiring like a 38 special! Valves burning everywhere! The smell of unburned gas and fouled plugs! What's not to like?

Don't forget the pod filters! The piece de resistance!
