the only solution to motorcycle exaust systems is to require the same noise reduction as autos have. it can be done if the law requires it.

Why are you bitching about motorcycle exauat why not bitch about all the shit music the wanabe punks are playing so loud you can hear them coming a half a mile away. Not to mention assholes that think they can talk or text someone on their dammed cellphones or blueberries, that bullshit can kill someone on a loud motercycle because they have their head up their ass (are you one of those shit gobblers)! I have never heard of a loud motorcycle killing anyone

Simple fix put a 357 thru the fn engine of the loud ass motorcycle.

People with small brains put loud exhausts on their
MC.

Better yet add a noise test to the yearly MC inspection test.

That will piss off the dirt baggers

What are you, straight out of the cold war? We live in a semi-socialist society, face it. Those programs are what keep the poor from falling through. Does this make me a socialist simp yuppy pussy too? I still have a loud exhaust on my bike. Chill out.

These loud motorcycles are illegal...for a very good reason. I am about to conduct a intense campaign to get law enforcement to strictly enforce the noise ordinance where I live to get these wildly inconsiderate people off the road, or else ban motorcycles from this area altogether. Sorry to say that, I am not at all against motorcycles but enough is enough.

Loud pipes DO NOT increase safety - that has been proven. All that loud pipes accomplish is denying other citizens their rights to peace and quite.

Many of these motorcyclists are quite vocal about their “rights”, however as they ride their loud and illegally modified motorcycles do they consider the rights of others to peace and quiet?

Thanks for making my point Fred, your email shows the attitude which is typical of the people riding these illegally modified motorcycles, who insist on violating other rights and the law.

I am not looking for peace and quite, just relief from the wildly inconsiderate folks who ride these tremendously loud and illegally modified motorcycles.

If you pass a law for loud bikes you also need to pass a law for the extreamly loud steros in cars where they rattle windows in other people cars and stores, and also ban Cell phone usage while driving and I know u use a phone while driving.that has been proven to cause accidents where loud bike has never killed anyone, but it has saved my life, or an accident at least.

I think it's bullshit that a motorcycle can have a loud exhaust but as soon as I put one on my car I get pulled over. What makes motorcycles so special?

Why is it legal for a ridiculously loud motorcycle to sit next to me at a light, revving? I feel like my ears will bleed! Why does some low brow have more rights than I do? It's equivalent to someone pulling up beside you and blasting an air horn in your car window. Is that legal? Besides, most of the guys I see on bikes are over 50, over weight, and they should grow up and act like real men. A real man doesn't have to act like an ass to get attention.

"Why does some low brow have more rights than I do?"

Because life isn't fair. Nor are we all equal (although we may have been created that way). Freedom and equality are opposites. Equality means oneness, alike, restricted to a mean value. Freedom means individualized, diversified unrestricted.

Free men and women are not equal, and equal men and women are not free.

Loud pipes are like all the other disrespectful and disruptive things mental bankrupts do. It's disrespectful, a disturbance of the peace, and in most cases, illegal. You see, it takes a very simple person, with a very simple mind, to like things like loud pipes. What we are fighting here is a mentality similar to that of a small infant or even more accurately, a reptile. The only difference is that these people (I use the term very loosely) walk up-right.

I hope a ban is forthcoming...

Here is a very interesting link about Harley Davidson Motorcycles (again, I use the term loosely)

Sorry to take your little loud toys away but it is noise pollution. What if you lived next to someone playing really loud rap or classical music? Wouldn't you feel upset too? Keep it cool and don't draw attention and negativty towards yourself. Go easy on the loud pipes and you just might find yourself in a better place in the world.

Becuase loud exhaust increases safety on a bike ten fold. and they put off a fraction of the emissions that a car does.
