hmmm, yeah, loud ( but legal ;>) pipes on my Harley Dyna piss off everyone. But certainly do get more attention from most cagers then the X300. Its like Im frickin invisible and silent on the versys; bought the new Bell XP adventure helmet in the orange just to get a little more "noticabilty" for commuting- seems to work ok, less lane invasions when riding the X300 wearing it. That ****e almost never happens when Im riding the Dyna, peeps seem to be much more aware of my presence on the Dyna- its black and way shorter then the Versys, so go figure, and less willing when they do notice me, to do anything to piss me off. Not that stuff still doesnt happen, just not near as frequently. And no I dont rely on anything but awareness and quickness to survive a commute, regardless of how loud exhaust or color of gear is
