Why is there no law against driving one of those motorcycles that is so loud it drowns out all other sounds on the street as it passes by? If you drive one, it means that you are proud of being an asshole. I hope you crash and some quiet person gets your liver.
I lived in a neighborhood where some guy on the other side of the block had a cycle so loud that we could hear it from inside our house with the windows closed. He liked working on it ALL DAY on the weekends, revving it over and over to make sure it worked. I never did figure out which house he was in...which in retrospect was probably for the best.

It is illegal to not have a muffler on them. But it seems no one cares. I live in Daytona Beach where there is a "bike week" two times a year. They end up being bike two-weeks and it drives me crazy!

Actually, they are not assholes. They are fags. South Park changed the meaning of the word fag. Fag (făg) n. 1. An extremely annoying, inconsiderate person most commonly associated with Harley riders. 2. A person who owns or frequently rides a Harley.

I'm no motorcycle fanatic, but it's my understanding that the excess noise a motorcycle makes v. a car is a safety precaution for the motorcyclist (as in, unalert car drivers who aren't looking will at least hopefully hear the bike). That's no consolation for people who live on streets where motorcyclists routinely roar through. But if motor vehicle operators in general were better and more alert drivers, motorcyclists wouldn't have to have such loud bikes.

I'm pretty sure that here in NYC, Bloomberg is working on this.

Yeah that saftey argument only goes so far. I could still easily hear your bike even if it were FAR below the decible level needed to set off car alarms (which the dudes who love to ride by my house do semi-constantly... at 4am... i'm going to eat them). If i can still hear you when you're four blocks away, its sort of ridiculous to pretend its a saftey issue. I am on the verge of placing a giant sign outside my house that says "I'M REALLY SORRY ABOUT YOUR PENIS, BUT STFU" Thank God for South Park.
