Default Couple of bizarre posts ... again

Again the anti-harley crowd are spouting their mouths off, giving credence to the saying that empty vessels make the most noise.



After an article by Fred Rau was posted by MO, the only posters that actually admitted to riding with straight pipes were ricers. Not one Harley rider (that I know of) indicated that they use straight (or loud) pipes.



A couple of highly naïve individuals (all of them ricers) actually went as far as to say their pipes are ok because they are only "loud at high revs". A couple of numbskulls thought that their noisy pipes were ok because "my bike makes real power".



No, simply because your bike makes over 100 hp when it is loud, does not draw admiration from the public. And no, nobody is impressed that you break both speed limits and noise limits at the same time. They still consider you a noisy a$$hole and a danger to other road users. They are correct on both counts.



Yes, it is true a couple of riders are ruining it for everybody. Sadly, the guilty parties are so busy pointing their fingers at others that they are blissfully unaware that they are part of the problem.

Not from where I'm sitting. It's only Harleys that are setting off the car alarms around here.

Default Re: A Respectable Request From a Non-Rider?

Living in wonderful downtown Long Beach, California I can attest that 95% of the pipes that are ridiculously loud are big twin cruisers. Now, there are non-cruiser types with loud pipes but nothing of the audible power of the twins.



This is coupled by the fact that cruiser riders seem unable not to rev up or blip the throttle constantly.



Is it annoying? Yes. Will it really save lives? No. Is it bad for riders and bad for motorcycling? Yes.



Add to that, that almost without fail if I see a loud piped bike I see a rider with a t shirt, MAYBE jeans, and tennis shoes. The safety bug ones wear the all protective leather vest. Usually if there's a passenger, they're wearing their high impact spiked heel boots and definitely protective tank top. Skid lid is mandatory.



They may be a small minority but they're the ones who gather the (negative) attention. If I thought that local law enforcement would hassle them, I'd encourage them to hand out tickets by the ton, but local law enforcement here has better things to do, no idea what, but better things to do.



Modifying bikes is a fantastic little hobby. Lots of satisfaction to be gained from really making a bike "you". Volume doesn't make the bike "you" it makes "you" an asshat
