Well as I understand it it's illegal for cities to put bans on DOT approved forms of transportation... why should it be ok for some little community?



I mean it's rather bias to just ban motorcycles? what if I had a lot of clients I needed to visit in that community but I had a motorcycle? that could seriously hurt my bisness if I had to spend a bunch of time walking to them..

Suzi

kessler moved to a city because they ban bikes. What a crock but then again maybe she never leaves town. I see thi as another argument against gated community living. I am sure an uproar would insue if another type vehicle or group were banned but motorcycles are an easy target

Everyone knows what sort of people ride motorcycles, and that's not the sort of people you want near your gated community. Let in the motorcyclists and the next thing you know you'll have drug lords and homosexuals living next door.

I could understand a noise regulation, that would make some sense. One of the reasons I moved out of West Hollywood this past weekend were the jackholes with their LOUD PIPES (motorcycle, Ferrari, etc.) or 5kW car stereos that would roll past or even park in front of my building at 3 AM on a Tuesday. By comparison my SV is considerably less raucous.



I would be willing to bet that there are people with cars and trucks in Canyon Lake with an exhaust note more pronounced than most stock bikes. I would also bet that this law exists almost entirely on perception, that all bikes sound like a HD with an aftermarket exhaust and that bikers are hooligans just waiting for the chance to eat babies and corrupt daughters.

Hispanics are only to be banned from after 5PM until 6AM.

Well, I don't know about the baby-eating, but the daughter-corruption is OK in my book...........

Yep noise reg seems the way to go.. Like you said, that way you get the loud car steros which I forgot about. My neighbors say my Ninja is so quite compared to HDs and my neighbors Vulcan with after market pipes.
