According to research on reddit, loud crotch rockets are a product of either modifying post purchase or removing the muffler, either a selfish ego motive or a self preservation, “loud motors save lives” philosophy, right up there with “bright LED headlights at all times save lives.”
Therefore, since I gotta deal with the issue of loud motorists at home at ungodly hours, I’ve come up with this:
“Loud motors save lives!”
Or the ego reason:
“Hey look at me. Hey! You’re not looking.”
