I'm not so concerned with the rabid haters, its the mildly annoyed voters that I worry about.

There are big noise issues here in Vancouver and BC in general. Yesterday the union of bc municipalities are unanimously endorsing increased spot checks once the government confirms actual testing and noise limits consistent across the province. Clearly the attention whores have finally pissed of non motorcyclists to the point that its now an election issue. Thanks fuck head pirates.

Ummm, I'm not too sure why you are pissed off. This just means we will have a consistent test level for noise and the communities that choose to can enforce noise bylaws. Good idea.

I'm a bit pissed of because:
1) those same attention whores that wake me up at 1am as they leave the beer parlour are also waking up non motorcyclists, and also forcing those same motorcyclists to pause their conversation as the pirate blips his throttle to gain a glance from anyone who is within earshot.
2) those motorcyclists who've awaken that great sleepy voting majority out there are now about to force government to not play favourites and to hassle all motorcyclists with spot checks for noise tests.
I'd rather the forced helmet changes in BC would clear out a lot of these guys but they just got cheap ass DOT stickers for their Bernie helmets, so the same losers are still among the serious motorcyclists along us which is a shame.

piss off enough people are you're going to get legislation passed like the watered down crap we have now around the US requiring pipes to have EPA stamps. Yes, you might be able to put a bogus stamp on your pipes but If the cops are made to actually care, it's going to make a lot of problems for every bike, from now on.

.....where can you buy those stickers? I know people that are looking. j/k

Well, I'm not sure the situation is going to meet your approval anytime soon. I always wore a DOT helmet and my bikes aren't loud so I guess I'm OK.

I thought that it illustrated pretty well the frustration and anger of non-bike people who will at a certain point just not tolerate the BS anymore, and if it appears on a ballet, man are people going to vote for it..... and after all the super bike boyzz and the straight pipe harley riders have had all their fun, the daily bikers are going to have to live with it

To my ears my stock bikes sound pretty good.

Small justice, but at least those straight pipe/super bike perps will suffer the consequences of their excess when they have to give it up and can't hear a thing with their spent ear drums.

Yes, that and the increased enforcement of noise bylaws will probably mean that most of them change their exhaust to a legal version and the noise will stop. Of course in a perfect world the miscreants will be punished with some level of physical pain as well. I guess.

I think you're missing the point. Once the laws get passed EVERY bike will be stopped at roadside checkpoints and hassled with the valid excuse that the LEO's are checking exhaust sound levels. Another tool for the authorities to use to deal with the broad spectrum of riders because they won't use the tools they already have to deal with the problem.

Like the anti-stunting legislation.
