Loud Pipes Save Lives

Loud Pipes Save Lives

Most cars, trucks and SUV drivers who cause motorcycle crashes, claim they never saw the motorcycle at all. Loud pipes help bikers let the other vehicles on the road know they exist. Before the motorcycle is ever seen, it is heard. It’s loud pipes may no doubt help save the rider’s life.

Harley Davidson teaches classes to new riders. My son Bryan took such a class last year. They informed all the students of the importance of loud pipes. Telling them, it just might save their life.

If you believe, as I do, that loud pipes save lives, then maybe you know about loud pipe manufactures like :

  • Rhinehart
  • Samson Sinisters
  • Samsom Street Sweepers
  • Thunderheaders
  • Pipe Dreamz
  • Sideshots
  • Bassani
  • V&H Bigshots
  • V&H Straightshots

These are only a few of the products of companies that specialize in making motorcycles LOUD.

Let me talk about another set of pipes.A Set Of Pipes” is a figure of speech we use for someone one with a great voice. Especially, if they have a very loud voice.

Dictionary.com’s Slang Dictionary defines:

“set of pipes”

  1. n.
    a very loud voice; a singing voice.

The Psalmist said,

Ps 98:4 “Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.”

Will loud worship save anyone?

I don’t plan to find out if I can afford to ignore this passage and others just like it. For some reason, God wants our worship to be energetic and very vocal. He wants us to use our set of pipes and sing with a loud voice.

I believe that Loud “Pipes” save lives, even in church! Don’t keep quiet during the worship service. The life you save may be your own.

  3. What a true statement. There were times when I did not feel like worshipping but I got the revelation that my God is greater than my tired body and when I got into the service there was a powerful move of God. What a true post thank you.

  8. I know one thing! I don’t feel like we’ve had church if it hasn’t gotten loud and emotional! I would imagine there was nothing quiet about the day of Pentecost! It was “noised abroad!”
