My understanding is that the exhaust is pointing away from the direction you're travelling, so loud pipes are moot point.
Not true. Sure it's louder behind the exhaust, but sound waves travel out in all directions. Unless you're traveling faster than the speed of sound, the noise will proceed you. You still hear trains coming, trucks approaching, and loud muscle cars even if you're not standing behind them.
Tis better to be thought a fool and remain silent, than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.
