I can remember the exact moment I saw this, it was pretty important afterall, it was a device that made your bike sound like a motorcycle. Screw want, I needed this dammit, it was important.
My parents reviewed my case and shot it down claiming "Safety issues" when pressed further I pretty much got some sort of goofy answer like "People might think you're a motorcycle" it made zero sense.
Fortunately for me, none of the neighbourhood kids got one either, so I didn't have a constant reminder. The odd kid would cruise by the cul-de-sac I grew up on with one but it was rare.
