LETTER: Motorcycling ‘loud pipes crowd’ just looking for excuses to make noise

If quiet motorcycles are unsafe the roads should be littered with crashed BMWs and Honda Gold Wings, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

Loud pipes are dangerous because they prevent the rider and nearby traffic from hearing emergency sirens.

The loud pipes crowd are just looking for an excuse to make noise. They probably put playing card noisemakers on their bike’s spokes as kids.
