part of owning a loud motorcycle is to warn a person in front that you are in their blind spot, stealth motorcycles don't offer that

My Harley-Davidson 1200-S Sportster gets 54 mph and has plenty of power. Who wants an electric? Cars complain they cannot see a cycle...now they can complain that they cannot hear on also!
