Why do people ride such loud motorbikes?

Like what is the point? I live in a neighborhood with at least 3 guys with loud bikes.
But this one guy legit, every ******* evening, starts his loud bike and lets it idle for about 5-10 mins (as long as it doesn t stall out). But what bothers me the most is that instead of just turning to the main road, he s gotta

But this one guy legit, every ******* evening, starts his loud bike and lets it idle for about 5-10 mins (as long as it doesn t stall out). But what bothers me the most is that instead of just turning to the main road, he s gotta drive around the whole subdivision revving his bike AND THEN he goes out to the main road.

Like why? Do these guy s think they are cool? Cause I don t think anyone will look at them and be like "Woahh man, those guys on them loud harleys.. Wow, they are so cool"

I just had an recent experience with a lightning storm taking out my electrical power and the power company didn't show up until daybreak and seemed very confused on were the fault in the power line existed. So… at some 10 hours had to clear the carb on a stand by generator to get some temporary power to the refrigerator to keep food from spoiling. It didn't take very long to clear the carb, and the second thing I did was move the very small generator as far away as the cord would reach.

I kinda' chuckled and thought, "Yeah! This is what an altered exhaust motorcyclist would do if he went camping!" Only placing it closer to his neighbor's tent than his own!

If the sound is so valuable and enjoyable to them why do they make a point of directing it away from their own ears?

Oh! I don't enjoy motorcycling around any of those "loud Harleys"! Overtaking them my first thought when I hear their exhaust is, "Something has gone terribly wrong with my engine!" Then I realize: It's just the sound of a loud motorbike over 1/4 mile distant !

Some for the attention because loud noise brings attention, Some as a you can hear me coming so its safer to hear you coming than not. I met a guy with a aprillia 1000cc recently loud as f**k unnecessarily loud exhaust mod even on idle was too noisy.

They're d!x, yeah a loud bike is cool if the loudness is necessary, but HDs are not performance machines and only reason owners strip the pipes is to be "badass". Just call the cops and dob him in.

Hmmm. I just like the sound. HOWEVER I dont make all kinds of noise in my neughborhood EVER. Its possible to come and go without raising RPM and making a racket!
