Loud pipes do not save lives. I would like to no where that came from. Saving lives is being aware of your surroundings and being able to act according to the situation that is around you. Telling someone loud pipes saves lives is very bad advice. Telling them to take a Basic Rider Course would be so much better. That will give them the advantage they need to cope with the bad drivers they will come in contact with.

They actually CAN save lies if they are quickly detachable and used to bludgeon senseless that texting teen before he/she kills someone. But wear gloves...those pipes can get hot.

I just ride like I don't trust anybody. Mostly because I don't. Always give myself plenty of space between cars and am constantly assessing the road like a general over a battlefield. This all holds especially true of intersections. I pay very close attention to those approaching from the perpendicular. I position myself in a way that anticipates them to not see me. Nearly every car that has pulled in front of me, I knew was going to do it. They're the ones that approach the intersection faster than anyone else. And don't let yourself get too comfortable on the road. Motorcyclists that ride like they're in a car (road spacing and expecting to be seen) are just as responsible for an accident as the car that hit them.
