It's at the point where our very freedoms as motorcyclists are in jeopardy because of the "loud pipes saves lives" and the "louder is better" camps.

Difference of opinion will always be present on this issue, but what will happen is that legislation will continue to march against noise created by our bikes. I'm not saying that one should not enhance the sound of their bikes, but I encourage people to consider the downside of becoming obnoxious about it.

It's funny how people who have no appreciation of how our cars, truck or motorcycles sound, can make enough noise to legislate noise laws. There should be anti-whining laws too! It's like, you bought a house on a road, vehicles make noise, get over it!
Great, except no one was necessarily talking about "extremely loud or obnoxious". You made a lot of assumptions there.

How about this? Loud enough to be noticed (without being obnoxious) saves lives.
Don't get hung up on the words, it's just a (true) saying.

But it's not true any more. The whole old cars with no radio, no AC and no insulation thing. If people don't see my huge fire truck with lights, sirens and air horns, they aren't hearing or seeing our tiny farting motorcycle

I get what you are saying. If I made assumptions, that was not the intention. The whole saves lives thing is used by exactly those people that are the most obnoxious. So anything I said about being obnoxious was not directed at you or anyone personally, rather those that would use the saying as an excuse / reason for being obnoxious. You clearly are not in that camp.

You say it's a true saying, but I respectfully disagree. You are certainly entitled to your thoughts on it, but I do not believe it.
