It was a joke to make you think I put the TP in my exhaust pipe.
I always ride with earplugs. Arai helmets are comfy but let in a bunch of wind noise.
I friend of mine lives in a valley maybe 500 yards across. After I put the Satos on, I went to his place to show him. I stood aside and listened while he took 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gears to redline. He filled that whole valley with 919, so to speak. MUCH louder than baffelectomised stockers. The leaves were off the trees, which didn't help matters.
