I have had Harley's in my blind spot in the past and if they hadn't had loud pipes I might have changed lanes in front of them. But for the vast majority of the time, anyone pulling in front of a rider wouldn't hear the bike anyway since the exhaust goes out the back and the accident is in the front. If they want to avoid lane change collisions, they shouldn't ride in a car's blind spot.
If the loud pipe crowd was truly concerned about safety, they should definitely wear helmets. Here in Illinois, you might see 1 in 1000 Harley riders with a helmet on.
