For all you newbies out there, thought I'd give you all some advice...

It's very important to be heard out on the street. When you're lane-splitting or zipping down the bicycle lane, people had better hear you coming. I recommend the following...

-double-pack your cannister
-go EVERYWHERE in 1st gear

Higher gears are far more dangerous as they're so much quieter. Stick to first and you'll always be A-Okay!

I heard that you don't even need a pipe, just take it off so your bike can be loud enough to hear.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">From experience, you do need a pipe if you ant it loud. If you run an open head, the exhaust noise gets adsorbed by the radiator and plastics. It is just as loud as stock.

I'm going to buy some Harley straight pipes off of ebay and put them on. I figure if they make a Harley loud, just think how loud my bike will be.
