stupid cops and noise...

being as most of us are pissed about being ticketed for TRD, TSRM, and Kazuma exhaust...check this out...its regarding those Harley crews and their noise...makes me want to puke puke puke when I think about the fact that I've never seen a harley get pulled over for pipes... "Wolf complained of the noise in a May 22 letter to Rendell and the city investigated. From 11:18p.m. on May 25, to 12: 19 a.m. on May 26, the Philadelphia Air Management Services (PAMS) conducted a South Street Noise Survey in the 200 block of South Street. During the test, 18 motorcycles drove through the area creating decibel levels (dBA) at 127. The legal maximum, according to PAMS, is 84 dBA." WTF!!!!! angry

Bikes dont have to have a resonator or muffler so sound laws dont apply to them

The same laws don't apply. I do agree, however, that everyone with one of those bikes should have his arms ripped off and be beaten to death with them.

about two weeks ago, heat and I were walking down Melrose (Hollywood, Beverly hills...etc) and down comes a bike, reving his stupidly loud exhaust as he crept' through the blvd at about 15mph...

...all the people sitting eating their food and those walking up and down just as we had been... boo'd the guy and many even gave him a very obvious thumbs down

it was so funny rofl

seriously...I live in the North suburbs of ATL and there are always bikes coming by my house (my best friend's parents have 2 harley fatboys and have friends over all the time)...I just found it strange that I've never heard of a biker getting a damn fix it ticket or having to go thru any hassle like that. But when someone comes by in a sport compact they think its someone with a bad attitude or a trouble maker or something...grrrrr angry

Not true. They have to comply with noise ordinances.

Taken directly from New Hampshire State Statutes:

I. No person shall operate a motorcycle which has a measured noise level of more than 106 decibels on the decibel meter when measured 20 inches from the exhaust pipe at a 45 degree angle while the engine is operating at 2,800 revolutions per minute for one and 2 cylinder motorcycles and 3,500 revolutions per minute for any motorcycle with 3 or more cylinders.

There are a lot of people here. Maybe we could get our decibels limits raised to 100 or so.

maybe that's being a little optimistic. but what could we do about it?

Not much. Nationally, I believe the legal limit is 95 (?), but different states have their different laws.

If you wanted to change the law, you would need a lot of people to do so. A lot.



Also, I doubt that it would ever pass. I'm sure that it would get rejected.

Pros: Ricers get to have louder cars.

Cons: Everyone and their bitch would complain of the noise.

I mean hell, they are pretty loud now.

My uncle has a custom chopper and he gets pulled over all the time for his loud exhaust?
