Agreed: most cities/states etc already have noise regulations "on the books"
I don't like loud pipes either but motorcycles are just an easy target.
because I live in a tourist destination, and between the small local airport and the beach,
on the weekends we have planes pulling advertising banners
that are much louder than a large herd of straight piped Harley's,
so are the helicopters and F18 fighter jets.
It's just something we have to "live with"
Should I admit that I oppose any laws that specifically target or exempt any group or groups?
It depends on which group? Discrimination has become the American way,
we "cater" to minorities (press one for English or two for Spanish)
nobody "catered" to all of the Europeans that immigrated to the USA
And "they" never made any demands, they learned to speak the language.
That's just one example of the kinda stuff "pisses me of,
but I'm getting a bit of topic.
I need to get rid of some of this aggression
I think I'll just go outside now and shoot at some "cans"
