I know some of you are going to give me a ration over this,but so be it.
I've been a member of a snowmobile club for years,read the arcticles in various mags,read the posts on various forums,and shoot the bull with various people,some of them being officers in my respective states association.
Among other things,pipes are one the reasons our sport is becoming less and less popular among the general public,especailly the landowners whose lawns and back fields we have permission to ride thru,until of course that guy with the loud pipes roars thru at full throttle. Then that's the end of that established trail.
It's getting harder and harder every year to get permission from landowners who previously let us use their property. Some of it due to other reasons but more often then not it's because of the noise. A two stroke engine is plenty loud enough stock,and as far as I'm concerned plenty fast enough in the same condition.
Why ruin this fun winter sport for everyone else? Think about the other guy once in a while. Go ahead. Bring it on. I can take it because I'm right.
