oise of exhaust. Are these systems (mufflers, etc.) not available to the g
eneral public? Why are these consumer quality bikes so f.... loud? Since
all riders seem to be over the age of 55 (at least in Oregon) you would thi
nk they would appreciate some tranquility. Must be tiring to take a long r
oad trip and have to put up with that constant noise.
Another question: Can't they design these bikes so they maintain an idle?
Riders have to constantly play with the throttle at stop signs to keep the
engines from stalling.
