Did you notice that lots and lots of moderating is going on? I wonder who that could be?

I wish my rural NH town would enforce the NH law on db's. Next week is bike week, no sleep for me or my family.

Can't be Kook. He says he never moderates and we all know how honest he is.

No, I'm pretty sure that mandatory helmets and tiered licensing will come first.

I just pulled down the ordinance (council bill 242) and it excludes bikes manufactured before December 31, 1982 from having an EPA stamped muffler; so restoring classics doesn't seem to be what pissed off the Cherry Creek crowd. The bill *does* however say that even if your bike meets the 82 dB level at 25 feet you still get ticketed if you don't have the stamp. It also says that any alteration of the stock can is a violation as well, so heating the muffler and ramming a broomstick inside to scramble the baffles is no longer just mechanically stupid, but also financially stupid.



Bryan...doesn't impact me much; I don't ride in Denver if I can help it...

Motorcyclist will just have to band-together and develop their own Nucular Weapons. If Bikes have The Bomb, then they'll HAVE to listen to us up on Capitol Hill.

Why are loud pipes so important? I just don't get it.



No one can complain. If you get put out of business and your business is making products that fall outside existing laws, then tough. If you can no longer run your "mine isn't loud" aftermarket pipes, tough. The only thing that surprises me is that it's taking this long.



Also, this is a "convenience" law. There are already laws just about everywhere that limit the amount of noise anything can emit, including motorcycles and lawnmowers. This law just makes it easier to stop loud bikes.
