i have been wondering why they haven't outlawed them for a long while. i used to install the body kits on them in NH as well as other accessories such as the fart cannons, lowering kits. (the only reason i did was for the income that was the only reason)

when you put a body kit on them you remover the foam behind the bumpers and most of the time the impact bars as well. if they get into a wreck they are done for (cars and occupants)

but look at it this way whats different with that VS people with trucks or motorcycles that absolutely have to have the loud *** exhausts and huge pipes coming out the back with 18"-24" echoers on them. all of them are loud and annoying but you're not bitching about them and probably guilty as sin on that as well just as i was back in the day. personally i say shoot them all down cause it'* not fair to kill one of them when you have the others happening as well

As much as I dislike them, I can't say I was much better when I was a kid. The muffler came off, and a glass pack cherry bomb went on. I did what I could with what I had, and was happy with it. I had a van, man I miss that thing.

LOL, a lot of my hearing loss is due to a 83 el camino with a hellacious cam in a 350 with headers and 3" exhaust for each cylinder bank that ended at the rear axle...

idle or WOT, it generated dirty looks...

then i threw a glasspack on the MC with it'* 3100... nowhere near as raucus, but it was significantly louder. sounded good though, i can't imagine why anyone would complain about it'* tone, even at 2AM.

What I truelly hate are Harleys with open exhaust. I live in the country and when they rip past at high way speeds in the middle of the night I can hear them for several minuets. That'* miles away and I can still hear them. And lets not forget about the stupid loud rolling bass machines. Do you really need oit so loud that my windows rattle in the house, and I'm set way back from the road.

yeah, rumbles a bit near idle, but relatively quiet...

WOT near 3-4K RPM is a different story.
