Aftermarket exhaust debate

There seems to be an endless debate about the subject regarding noise, cost and the many options.

I found a solution!!!

2015 Suzuki V-Strom DL650 bought new 4/26/17
2015 Victory Cross Country bought new 7/11/15 (dyno tuned 118hp 116tq)
If it's not broken, make it better
My take on oil: Name brand, wet clutch compatible.....BAM good to go.

What is the world coming to, seriously. I decry the loss of proper english - and cringe every time their is the incorrect use of the words there/their/they're (and did you see what I did they're?).

I weep when people devolve in2 usn txt spk.

Soon, we will revert to our cave-dwelling ancestors, where we only speak in written form via pictogram.

But Jumping Jehosephat, can we not properly identify a f---ing TROMBONE rather than a trumpet?

Where the hell am I going. And why the hell am I in this handbasket....

Just wait

The new e-bike from Harley allegedly has a 2000 watt sound system (subwoofer in the top bag), with various sampled sounds to emulate the old "potato, potato" stock system, as well as a number of aftermarket exhausts. According to some reports (OK, this one) full volume usage will reduce the range to 15 miles. Which, considering the usage of many Harleys, will be more than enough.
