Very cool. But, won't it be a bit freaky to ride a silent bike? How many of you ride by feel and your ears?

You are riding the motor by your ears and sense of touch. Now those senses could be applied to the contact patch with the ground... listening for tires that are struggling or about to break loose... just a thought.

I just got done watching a police training video that taught students to listen to the change in pitch of their squeeling tires when making high G turns.

I find it a little more freaky hearing a 2 smoker hit the powerband. That sound tells me to hold the hell on. I find when mx riding more is based on how fast you are approaching the turn, ramp etc. To me, I guess it is more about perception of my speed than the sound the engine is making. The sound does help with when to shift, but there was no mention of a trans on the KTM.
