Why don't all motorcycles have mufflers?

I just don't get it.  It's illegal for cars to drive around without mufflers, so why don't the same laws apply to motorcycles?  And while I'm on the subject, I don't understand why anyone who owns motorcycles would chose to go without them.  The same painfully loud noises that irritate everyone else within a hundred yards have got to also be pretty annoying to the driver too, right?

And philosophically speaking, it blows my mind that any human being can think it's reasonable to make a choice for their own pleasure (especially something like this with no measurable gain) that is so clearly detrimental to everyone else around them.  It's like being the "loud cell phone talker" on the bus to the power of ten.
