Little macho men, they have a 100cc plastic moped and they make it as noisy as possible and pretend they're riding a Harley-Davidson.

People do look at them as they ride past.  The rider thinks they think he's cool when in fact the are thinking what a <deleted>! 

I just fitted a few new ones on my bike.

same with the cretins who remove their rear bumpers, the damge  in a small  shunt will be way  more expensive to fix than just a bent  bumper

Most Thai think that Noise = Power;  So the nosier thy can make their puny little step-through, the more powerful nd faster it will be..  Also, i think that Thai built silencers are noisier that original equipment, and cheaper.  

Thai police will ignore any bike with noisy exhaust, unless desperate for some money

Not only Step throughs, proper looking motorbikes that have been messed with. 

Harley's are noisey.

You and your loud motorbikes, 

80 decibels is OK as long as it's a nice exhaust note. 

95 db & 99 db are allowed for motorbikes in Thailand.

I used to do that to my Vespa and Lambretta's back in the 60's....I never pretended to be anything else other than a "Mod".....😋

But may have hogged out the motor and installed an Ancelotti exhaust which was a tad louder. 😎 But installed for performance not volume.

My Lambretta TV175 did have an orange Ancelotti box, and Wal Phillips fuel injection...😋.....

But I had various boxes to suit my mood...🤭

Anyone who modifies an exhaust to make it louder should indeed be fined........total lack of concern for other people. If you like it then listen to it in your own living room/ Same for those blaring speakers in the back of pick-ups.

There's are high Decibels levels allowed in Thailand. 

 

Proper motorbikes are modified to improve performance and aesthetics and done out of interest for motorbike enthusiasts.

 

I understand there are people that find any noisy motorbike annoying IMHO it is because mostly Thais do it themselves and mess it up.

Didn't know there were aftermarket kits in those days only remember the first fuel injected bike came out in 1980.

It's because of the small dick syndrome, it compensates them where they are lacking in the other department, high babie, listen to this........

Congratulations on admitting to be so well-informed about Thai mens' penises.   

 

"High babie..." [sic]?  What?

and what is that all about with false exhausts , you see them on Yaris '  , that board with 4 round chrome things , supposed to look like real exhausts.  Does the owner think ' That will impress other Yaris owners when they see my fake exhasts ' .

Why is it that so many "blokes" get a new bike and bung on a "loud" exhaust and a tail tidy - and then grin and bear it for the sake of vanity, when the bike runs lean / pops like mad and water gets sprayed up their back when it rains  ?

 

maybe they think people who look at them when they ride past are thinking "i wish i was him" .....

I think it's easy to understand why lots of guys like to customize their bikes. And part of that is making the bike sound and look "faster". Guys with big bikes don't need to do that. But boys who can't afford big bikes want at least something that sounds like a big bike. I remember that because there was a time when I was young and I had a small bike.

 

But being a member of several facebook groups is definitely something I don't understand...

They like the look along with the chrome fuel cover. 😂

I asked the ford dealer where my stock rear bumper was at , I don't like the aftermarket bumpers front and rear they stuck on .  they said cars ( truck ).  are not sold with a bumper.
