Gotta vent a little......Participated in a Patriot Guard Ride today and a Harley riding next to me had slash cut pipes, (not sure what brand) but they were ear splitting loud. The guy had to get on it every couple of seconds just to let everyone know his pipes were loud, and every underpass he had to rev the engine as we went under it. I guess it was just my luck to be ride next to this guy, but it sure was annoying after awhile. I had a hard time hearing after riding 40 miles next to him to the Cemetery; I just don't see the reason for pipes being that loud. (imho) Happy to have him participate in the procession, but I guess I'll have to make sure I have ear plugs in next time. I guess it would be senseless to ask for a little restraint when riding in this type of event....Sigh!
