About This Item

Myth 2:

Loud Pipes Save Lives

Yeah, there are a few situations—like where you are right next to a driver with his window down who is about the to change lanes—where full-time noise-makers might help a driver notice you, but all that noise directed rearward doesn't do much in the most common and much more dangerous conflict where a car turns in front of you. Maybe it's the fatigue caused by the noise, maybe it's the attitudes of riders who insist on making annoying noise, or perhaps loud bikes annoy enough drivers to make them aggressive. Whatever the reason, the research shows that bikes with modified exhaust systems crash more frequently than those with stock pipes. If you really want to save lives, turn to a loud jacket or a bright helmet color, which have been proven to do the job. Or install a louder horn.

Between 2002 and 2007, U.S. motorcyclist fatalities increased by 57%, from 3,276 to 5,154.

    Grab It (Not from a Cache) 04/19/2019 Shortcake57 grabbed it   Visit Log

    While on an out-of-town geocaching run with a friend, we stopped in to visit with my old time geocaching friends "**The Campers**". During our visit they gave me a bag of travel bugs that they have been holding onto for some years now. Sadly "The Campers" (both husband and wife) have been in very bad health for a couple of years, and have not been able to get out to go caching. So they gave the bugs to me, knowing that I will move them on!

    Will have this travel and visit caches with me for awhile. I have a couple of Road Trips coming up soon, so it can get some miles. I will drop as soon as I can. But please know that I have a bunch of them to drop and so many log only caches out there!
