Ran across this website while reading my Ride Texas magazine. It's pretty amusing. I figured ya'll would get a kick out of it, too.

"WWW dot NOISEOFF dot COM"

It's the Citizen Coalition Against Noise Pollution. I guess you can see where this is going.

Be sure and click on the 'motorcycle' tab on the left of the home page. Here's just a sampling of what you'll find:
**********
Do not approach or attempt to reason with loud bikers. When possible, take down their license plate number and call the police. Speak to police officials and demand stronger enforcement on noise from illegally modified pipes.

Talk to your neighbors and organize, chances are they are just as frustrated as you are. Most communities have some type of noise ordinance in place and you should know what they are and if they require strengthening. Lobby the city council or the community board in your area to increase police patrols and fines for offenders.

If you see a motorcycle shop opening up in your community, organize with your neighbors. Stage a protest and send a media alert to local newspaper and television news outlets so they can cover the event. Attend community group meetings and speak out against motorcycle events where a noise variance is required.
**********

Don't know about ya'll...just makes me want to go outside and hit the throttle several hundred times.

If Death went retail, he'd open a motorcycle dealership. With sales figures doubling since 1998, bikes are booming?as are visits to the E.R., where staff call the brain-dead Easy Riders "donorcyclists." Fatalities among motorcycle riders and passengers spiked 12 percent in 2003, continuing an upward trend that began eight years ago. In fact, based on miles ridden, a motorcyclist is 21 times more likely to die in a crash than a guy driving a ho-hum Elantra.

Survive it: You're tooling down the road on your motorcycle when an onrushing car turns left in your path. "A lot of guys panic. They lock up the brakes and lay the bike down rather than T-bone the car," says Pat Hahn, a spokesman for the Minnesota Motorcycle Safety Center and the author of Ride Hard, Ride Smart: Ultimate Street Strategies for Advanced Motorcyclists. Bad move. Chrome and flesh slide faster than rubber, so save your skin, literally and figuratively, by staying upright. "It's almost impossible to flip a bike," says Hahn, recommending that you squeeze the front brake lever "like you're squeezing juice out of an orange." Begin soft, then squeeze progressively harder while steering in a straight line. "Your goal," he says, "is to get the speed down to buy yourself one or two seconds for the car to turn."

I got this off m sn I rode a dirt bike more then on the street but you never did that with the front brake on them got get used to this road stuff differant

I know you wouldn't bash anyone Big Bear.
I was just kidding around a bit was all. lol
Altho I have seen alot of funny T-shirts about the different bikes.

Better my sister in a Ho house than my brother on a Honda.

I'd rather push my Harley than ride a ricer.

If Harley made airplanes would you ride in one?

I'm sure most everyone here has seen them and they're just for poking fun at each other.
This is my first Harley and hope all goes well with it as I've looked forward to it for a long time.
Dang, it sure sounded and felt great yesterday.
Not many 60 degree days up here in Jan.
Got me a 2006 parts and accys. catalog to bring with me over there to slobber and drool over.
Lots of things I'd like to add to the bike.
My Choc. Lab Cocoa says thanks for including her on your list of things that you don't bash-lol
More later,
Dusty

Drove about 45 minutes today to turn her in and the weather was fantastic here in Maine- almost 60 degrees!

Had alot of folks giving thumbs up and honking on the turn pike- great ride.
Has a really nice sound with the DD exhaust and will be willing to scrap if someone tells me they're too loud and have to take them off!
My answer to them- come get some Biotch!!!!
Dang going to miss her bad- head out early Friday morning now and will be back late Sept.
Take care everyone,
Dusty

HG,
Well, I've had three Harleys over the years and while I still think them a great machine, I just got tired of wrenching on em. So "clean"... yup. My bike gleams like a new dollar, but "calm"? heh heh heh. Guess you'll have to wait and see.
Tell you whut, you being an experienced biker and all, You take me for a ride on yours and i'll take you for a ride on mine. : )

Nope BB...can't argue with you on that one.

I love my Harley, but it is never a surprise to find something doesn't sound just right, or damn, what happened to that bolt?

But...some like calm and clean, and that's great. I like'em loud and dirty! I'm kinda scared to wash mine for fear of finding out the dirt was the only thing holding it together!

Yep...you sure do BB.

But that's probably because you can hear'em over the pipes. People never know what us HD riders are saying! Which is probably a good thing!


HAHAHAHA!!! You KNOW I love ya!

You are absolutely right, HG. I too know of the allure to the pipes. Love to rattle windows, by racking them out at the stoplights. : ) The trumpets on my Honda sound good, but there's nuthin like a Harley for noise and they are so easy to find, too; just follow the trail of parts that fall off of them. LOL
Oh boy, I'm already feelin the flames from that one. LOL

I think that the days of the "bad biker" scenerio, as viewed by John J. public is gone. Too many people that are professionals in life are ridin now.
For example look at BK. Outside of a few wannabes, there are very few hardcore bikers left. Besides "You meet the nicest people on a Honda." LOL
