Okay, just to clear up a world of misinformation and chest beating up above.



Here's the EPA test procedures for exhaust noise emissions:



http://www.nonoise.org/epa/roll5/roll5doc16blp16.pdf



The limit is not 80dBA at 3ft at ANY engine speed, unlike some people wish to claim in order to prove some deluded point of view.



Read the document and get the full facts.



Here's hoping that this clarifies the legalities for some who like to think otherwise.

"Please quote me in context"



Fine, will happily do so purely to point out the extent of your delusional ranting.



"If you pipe goes over 80db at 3 foot you are illegal, whether that happens at 2000rpm or 10000rpm. "

...and you're the one moderating your own posts to make out as if you're intelligent. What a joke!



Of course you'll respond with yet more personal insults, only to prove how intellectually cultured you are. Conversing with sheep? I dare say that sheep would have a higher grasp of cognitive powers than yourself.

Is it just me, or do most engines make more noise than a telephone?

"Don't think that stopping people from using loud pipes is gonna protect us. It never has."



Holy crap! Another gem from the master. Did I ever tell you about the bicycles that got banned from off-road areas of Chicago because they were a nuisance? True story. I pretty sure they are silent in operation, but the horsie owners didn't like them, so they got banned anyway. If it ain't one thing, it's another.

I noticed you donÂ’t comprehend English all that well.



How about "Baaaah Baaaah Baaaah?" Understand now?

I know what the original quote is. I have the Internet just like you do, Buckwheat, and apparently I have a more grammatically correct transcription, too. I'll send you out a writer's manual with the portion on punctuation (commas in this case) highlighted for you. Perhaps you can pass the information on to the webmaster for the quote site you nabbed it from.

When the whole basis of your argument is shot down by someone presenting the facts, all you have left to respond with is lame attempts at truly ineffectual personal insults?



I accept your acknowledgement of defeat.

Oh, I firmly grasp the difference between ultrasonic and subsonic frequencies and that is why I pointed out that ultrasound is used to speed soft tissue healing by virtually all physiotherapists. Some therapists might use subsonics, but not in any clinic I've ever seen (lots of sports injuries have me on a first name basis with all the clinics in my home town).



As for the bike issue ... your bike passes the test before it hits the showroom floor, Buckwheat, and only at a specific frequency that all the manufacturers build their bikes around so as to ensure they pass. As far as the cops are concerned, it is a legal bike unless you prove otherwise. Some jerkwad like you might narc someone out and cause the bike to get remeasured or you might get some legitimate complaints and be measured again as a result, but until that measurement is done, you are effectively legal until proven otherwise. If the measurement is NOT made, then you will perhaps get a citation and temporarily lose your riding priviledges but none of that would stand up a second in court.



You talk about me living in Iran, but judging from what you say about your state, you are a hell of a lot closer to Iran than this so-called socialist nanny-state I live in. My building lodged 53 complaints against a biker with open pipes who lived there and it was only when I showed up at the local station with a copy of the ordinance and a SPL measurement I had taken that they decided to do anything. Even then, they had me take another measurement while the bike was running and checked the calibration of my meter before the charges were leveled.



Compared that to your "take a man off his bike just on my say so" story and it sounds like you live in some sort of facist state.

That is pretty much standard practice on the net, so I'm surprised that this site doesn't follow it. I'm getting good at ignoring most of the BS, but why should someone have to build up a thick skin just to chat about motorcycles?
