A loud exhaust has the same lethal fault as a loud horn
if you are in someones blind spot, or they dont see you, and you make a loud noise, if they cant see you they wont know where its coming from, and may run you over anyway.
If a person has poor hearing in one ear, they cannot tell what direction sound is coming from.
When discussions about putting car tires on motorcycles comes up, one of the points frequently made is no one has yet been able to point to a motorcycle accident and show it was caused by having a car tire on the bike instead of a motorcycle tire
but Im pretty sure there have been many motorcycle riders in serious or fatal accidents, inspite of having loud exhaust. Its not the same logical argument, but if someone cant see you, or they cant hear you, its up to you to get out of their path and stay alive.
