I don't like loud pipes so really like the quiet woosh of the Valkyrie. They are fun, sure, but I rarely ever hear anyone but sport bikes in any amount of time to react to them in traffic. When at the track or other event I appreciate how loud they are as an addition to the spectacle and performance of the machine. On the regular streets, no so much. I love electric bikes too, but just wish they were cheaper/better range/more versatile for me. Soon, though. In-wheel electric hub motors are going to reshape how bikes and other small vehicles are designed and I can't wait to see the crazy crap we'll get.
Sincerely, Mr. Cat.
"[I laugh because] I have not another tear to shed:
Besides, this sorrow is an enemy,
And would usurp upon my watery eyes
And make them blind with tributary tears:
Then which way shall I find Revenge's cave?"
