Loud Motorcycles – a Photo – a Thousand Words!

That “featured photo” is my beautiful Grandson celebrating the 4th of July, 2016. Can anyone tell me what’s “wrong” in this photo?

See that motorcycle parked near my handsome Grandson? The “illegal” exhaust mechanism on that motorcycle is manufactured by Vance and Hines…this is their “Big Radius” series of “NOT FOR ROAD USE” aftermarket exhaust that is very popular with the Loud Biker Cult[ure] roaming the roadways of the United States.

These Big Radius Vance and Hines exhausts, under hard acceleration, emit between six-and-eight times the legal 80 dB(A) “total” motorcycle noise restriction as per the US EPA’s Code of Federal Regulations – (measured on a logarithmic scale) – a noise emissions standard enacted for the protection of my Grandson and the health and welfare of the citizens of the United States; a noise emissions standard that is applicable to every street production motorcycle in the United States beginning with the 1986 year model forward.

For clarification purposes, the owner of the motorcycle in the photo, as well as some 60% to 80% of the motorcyclists on our roadways, has opted to “remove” the legal, quiet, US EPA approved muffler that is embossed with a label like the label in the photo below – and – in place of the approved, quiet muffler, the Loud Biker Cult[ure] has opted to install an aftermarket LOUD exhaust mechanism that is NOT approved for use on a motorcycle to be operated on our public roadways.  The greatest percentage of these motorcycles that have been illegally modified to make NOISE have also had their catalytic converters removed in the process; therefore, you not only have an incredibly, dangerously, illegally LOUD motorcycle, but you have one that emits harmful particulates into our atmosphere at a rate of some TEN-TIMES that of ONE compliant compact automobile.  Just to make hedonistic motivated NOISE!

The selfish and arrogant Loud Biker Cult[ure], by means of their obscenity and vulgarity, will laugh and obfuscate by claiming that there are “more important things to worry about than the ‘illegal’ exhaust mechanisms on their motorcycles.” Really? What’s more important? Your perceived “entitlement” to ride loud as a bully-thug or the protection of the health and welfare of my Grandson?

little girl at the 2016 steel horse rally
A child desperately attempting to protect her hearing from the incredibly loud/illegally LOUD motorcycles at the 2016 Steel Horse Motorcycle Rally in Fort Smith, Arkansas – touted as a “family friendly event.”  Arkansas’ State Law, 27-37-601, strictly forbids the operation of a motor vehicle on the roadways of Arkansas that is not equipped with the quiet factory-installed muffler or a muffler duplicating factory specifications, yet the Ft. Smith Police Department closed intersections for the Loud Biker Cult[ure] and assisted them in their audible assault on the Citizens present at this “thug” fest.  It is even a violation of Arkansas’ State Law to “sell” an exhaust mechanism in that State which does NOT conform to the specifications of the factory-installed muffler – does Arkansas’ State Police care? – not in the least – see the video-link at the end of this article titled: “Evidence of Arkansas’ Vehicular Noise Conspiracy.”

too loud too bad

Typical “attitude” of the Loud Biker Cult[ure] as they thumb their nose at the rule of law and intimidate our most innocent – yet our apathetic and cowardly, unconcerned, law enforcement community sips their Starbucks and looks the other way – our US EPA and our US Congress are “just too busy” and “lacks the resources” to stop these domestic terrorists who assault our most innocent with impunity!  Totally Unacceptable!  Note: This particular motorcycle in the photo is equipped with Vance and Hines “Short Shot” exhausts that, under hard acceleration, are audible for up to and even over ONE-MILE!!!  Does this Loud Biker care?
my bikes too loudif it feels good do it biker creed

Where is our law enforcement community? Where is the leadership representing our Municipalities and States all across this Nation – why are they failing, daily, to protect my Grandson and many millions of innocent victims just like him from these noise-bully-thugs in the Loud Biker Cult[ure] as well as those that operate illegally LOUD/modified auto’s and trucks?

Why am I forced to stand idly by and watch this daily assault on America’s most innocent while you who to an oath to “protect and serve” bury your head in the sands of apathy and nonfeasance? Why won’t you, Law Enforcement Community of America, enforce the Constitutionally valid laws that prohibit this egregious, intrusive, illegal, dangerous, destructive, bully, conduct of the Loud Biker Cult[ure]? You bunch of pathetic cowards! Why?

Want to change the unacceptable status-quo?  You, the vehicular NOISE beleaguered American Citizen, must get involved!  If you don’t care, the police won’t care!  Please call, write, your local and state police administration – please call, write, your local, state and federal leadership…DEMAND THAT THE MUFFLER LAWS BE ENFORCED…please, get involved – you can make “the” difference in our environment and our quality of life – without you and your demands for change, our children, our posterity, will NEVER understand the concept of “domestic tranquility” as it relates to community.
