In fact was a 4 stroke :-)
I don't take sides.
It's more fun to insult everyone.

I was also of this opinion after switching frrom a noisy, rattly 860GTS to a
quiet-as-a-mouse 500SL Pantah on which I was constantly being lane-changed
That was in 1982 though.
Now days with almost universal aircon (meaning "windows closed") and with
much higher-powered in-car sound-systems I don't think the sound a bike
generates makes that much of a difference.
The *look* however still factors!
