Death Vehicle of Noise

I don't really have a problem with the noises that motorcycles make, but I'm not very fond of the fact that the noise often seems to be the main goal. I won't care if some guy rides down the street on a vehicle that sounds like a machine gun that shoots helicopters. Maybe he's saying, "Hey. Guys, I'm sorry about the noise, but it's worth it for this sweet ride. Check out how awesome this is." Perhaps his vehicle is indeed awesome. That's fine. But there are other people, you guys. People who specifically tune their motorcycles to create the maximum amount of noise. I just think that less effort should be spent on volume, and more effort should be spent on general awesomeness. Make no mistake. Motorcycles can be awesome. The noise is just incidental. Make it sleek. Make it fast. Speed and beauty. All of that. Worthy goals.
