I believe in "Walking softly and carrying a big stick" in the form of stock pipes and DUAL AIR HORNS. Used these babies several times; amazing how the "drifters" into my lane bolt awake and dodge back into their lanes.

You'll get the hang of me. (It's my hobby and I'm a smart-a$$)

A louder horn that would scare the deer is probably cheaper than aftermarket exaust though.

Reminds me of a certain escapade about 15 years earlier.

Yes, I was young, dumb, and too poor to afford new mufflers. And I got ticketed for "excessive noise in a residential area".



I happily paid the fine.



Hopefully the statute of limitations has expired by now.



I had no license.

I live a stone's throw from Carefree, and this area is absolutely poser-heaven. At least 90% of the bikes are Harleys or customs, and most of them have after-market pipes. They're always out with their identically-dressed, individualists buds, for that long, lonesome 14-mile ride up to one of a handful of bars. Some of these guys are riding 50, maybe 60 miles a month.



This brouhaha reminds me of the South Park about little league, where Stan's dad would get drunk, start fights, and get dragged away from every game in his underwear yelling "Excuse me, I thought this was AMERICA" to the police.



I'm with Carefree on this one. There's nothing reasonable about the way the posers behave. It's gone way past that.



Cars and trucks would get ticketed too if they roared thru town with staight pipes. Especially if they did it by the hundreds 12 hours a day, 364.25 days a year.

If you persist in shattering the peace with loud pipes -- much like the low-man on the Prison Pecking Order -- eventually The Citizens will get used to the severe thumping they have to endure..........

So I rode through Cave Creek and Carefree this afternoon after an errand. It was peaceful and quiet and calm in Carefree, and Cave Creek sounded like a war zone.
