Staff bikes: BMW K1600GT - Turning up the volume

I recently picked up the first pair of Remus Hexacone slip on silencers in the country (www.performanceparts-ltd.com) to go on the BMW K1600GT and decided it might be fun to time just how long it takes the remove the old and fit the new.

noisy cans

I'm not normally one of these loud can man, they give me a headache, but they cn be a saftey thing. I uasually prefer a shiny pipe. motorcycles should be quite and civilized. Anything louder than my Nissan micra 1.1 DCI should be scrapped. But in this case, these pipes look lovely, and looks like mr Relph only worked up a little sweat slipping it in. keep it up son.

legislation

So, not content with saving weight and a "better" sounding but legal exhaust you removed the baffles making the bike illegal to use on the road, and you're going to keep riding it! This rather undermines all the fuss you and your colleagues at Bike are making about "anti-tamper legislation", as many of you seem not to abide by current legislation anyway! I would stop being so hypocritical if I were you. Make your illegal modifications and let's hope that your insurance company throws out any claim or cover you have should you be involved in an accident. Perhaps when you're bankrupt due to legal costs/compensation you might get the message. In the meantime you can just annoy the general public by making too much noise, and wait for yet more legislation that ALL of us have to put up with.
