It's war against MCs in Toronto!!!
 
http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/09...orceable-laws/

I don't even know where to start with this entire article. Although, typical snotty Toronto whiner....and the headline " fast and furious motorcycles" with a picture of a cruiser made me laugh......

The groups of sport bikes racing through residential neighbourhoods and up and down the expressways using the ramps as race tracks is a problem. It annoy a lot of folks. Usually done late at night.

Completely different phenomenon than the cruisers with straight pipes. Which are even more annoying to most folks.

I'm worrying that we are reaching a critical tipping point and that the authorities propensity for over reacting and punishing the innocent is about to take place again - like the stunting laws in Ontario that punish reasonable riders that may take their butt out of the seat when it was intended (supposedly) to deal with racers (which really wasn't much of a problem and there was legislation to deal with it already on the books but was just not used. The authorities prefer the laws that don't actually require them to take anyone to court in order to punish them.)

To the person that wrote the article, well that's just life in the big city, noise that is, deal with it. Don't like it buy some acreage out in the country and move.

Amazing people move there (any good size city) and expect peace and quiet.:lol3

They never came for our handguns. We never had them. We've just never felt the need to go armed in a civilized society. :rofl

I love ADVRider and the varying viewpoints but is it possible to have a thread about any issue in Canada without an american poster turning it into a gun thread?
Take it to CS&M and leave it there.

I live in Edmonton and I have seen/heard of folks getting pulled over by police noise traps.

One fellow got pulled over a week or two ago on his 1150GS; the police officer looked at him and laughed and said "carry on your way". So the law doesn't seem to care too much about ADV bikes.

There are a lot of Harley and Harley clones that make a TON of noise. Even out here, sport bikes aren't too bad. They CAN be loud but at least in my area I don't notice them very often (and if I do it's very fleeting).

Overall I think the noise bylaw is a good idea but I'd prefer it to be more general -- so that it targets bikers less. For instance I more often get woken up by a kid down the road with a who-knows-how-many-million watt stereo in his import. I can feel the bass from my apartment when he's on the street. That is just as disruptive in my mind as a bike (and at least with a bike, I get the pleasure of saying "ooo which one is that!").

So, I'm not in favor of laws that target bikes like this, but do understand the need to laws to discourage stupid noisy behaviour.

That is the point. The thread should have been started there. :D

I believe it was dankez who mention guns first and I think he is from.....OR.....not.....ON...........

I would prefer this not morph into another gun thread,love ya dankez, but I kinda wanted to point out what a downtown whinger the writer is and yet another article written about motorcycles by a cager.

Did you read the article?
It seems a cruiser with straight pipes pretty much nails it.
It's about NOISE - i own 5 bikes, and I agree with everything the author says.
Thank god it's only a matter of time before some of these idiots get reigned in:D

Thank you for clarifying your point.
To the other respondent....not so much.
