Of course. Now think about where it is when you do hear it. In front of you. There's nothing wrong with hearing your bike, I admit a well tuned bike sounds great with a moderately volumed pipe.

Trying to rationalize it due to safety is plain silly. If you want to be safe, make sure your headlights work and wear bright colored gear.

but if you want to justify safety then spend $31 for a dual airhorn at autozone. cheaper and more effective. a sound STARTING by a window is more obvious than a sound that the person has been hearing for the last 5 minutes and has tuned out. loud pipes are just annoying, especially to others you are riding with, i hate following bikes with loud pipes. i'd much rather have a low beefy tone than the sound of rocks rattling in a can

HAHA, you got to listen to my rattle can many times until 160mph....LOL

I am actually thinking about getting a BDE gen 3 for the 1000.....Just hard to justify spending $1200-1500 for the pipe/PCIII/tuning for a 10hp gain at peak....plus I don't want to lose the killer low end and midrange with the stock 1000 header...

Really depends on what "sound" you're looking for; loud and raspy or deep and subdued.
Cans / megaphones like the Graves, Scorpion or Racefit will be loud / raspy.
Cans like Akra, Leo Vince etc. will be deeper / more subdued.

I like my Scorpion, but the 600's sound more raspy than my big bore...

Then combined both sound and bright clothing. People use both visual and audible objects/aides to catch others attention. Like police cars, if all they had were lights, would u notice it coming? You can hear sound no matter which direction your standing, an object flashing can only be effective if is in line of sight. If people can hear you when your coming then they will look and see u wearing your yellow helmet or whatever.

Get back to me next time you see a patrol car with the siren mounted on the rear bumper.
