  1. Rick, I’m in awe of what you’ve taken on regarding the MC noise problem. I’m with you totally, and happy to have found your FB page. However, I don’t have a FB acct and don’t intend to sign up for one, therefore I’m unable to “like” or post comments. Any options to a FB acct? I do have a G+ acct. Anyway, I’ll continue to read your daily posts and suggest others to do the same. Heartfelt hanks for what you’re doing to tackle this pernicious problem.

  2. Rick, thanks for your reply. Have you considered a legal solution such as a class action against after market providers of an illegal product? Otherwise, I’m a proponent of the public health tact. We banned smoking in public buildings a number of years ago. That health issue is heavily enforced where I live. Where is the tipping point re: environmental noise? Kills people in a similar way…heart disease et al. Keep up the good work!

    1. Hello Thomas, I’ve done everything but beg the attorneys in Arkansas to represent me, or a class action suit, against the aftermarket exhaust industry. No takers yet. Not sure what I’m going to have to do get some serious attention, perhaps a hunger strike on the Arkansas Capitol Steps?…yes, this battle does mirror the battle with “big tobacco” in many ways. A couple of “wins” here and there and the entire NOISE debacle would begin to erode…just need traction! Thanks Thomas, Rick

  3. Actually, it’s the Loud Biker Cult[ure] who should consider moving to a Socialist or Communist country seeing that they have succumbed to an ideology of Moral Relativism thus lacking moral and ethical structure – those behavioral attributes necessary for a strong and resilient Representative Democracy.

    The United States is a Nation founded on the rule of law – and our Democracy cannot be sustained void an overwhelming number of the citizenry adhering to the venerable civil-reciprocal contract existing between the Government and the citizenry. It is the citizenry that must internalize the truism that behavior has consequences and each member of society is responsible for seeking peace, striving to do no harm, endeavoring to adhere to the edicts of the Sovereign and faithfully paying their taxes; in return, the State/Government provides the citizen with protection – protection being the first responsibility of Government.

    Your perspective is wholly incorrect because it is based on a faulty premise. You suggest that it is I who should protect myself from the selfishness and irresponsibility of others when there are well-established laws protecting me and the citizens of the United States from that illegal behavior. It is the members of the Loud Biker Cult[ure] who are responsible for violating the protective intent of the well-established, Constitutionally valid, laws and they are therefore guilty of violating the civil-reciprocal contract and are therefore truly the UN-American faction in your faulty scenario. With that said, it is the Loud Biker Cult[ure] who should seek another form of government in order to pursue their ideological perspective of Moral Relativism i.e. hedonism, narcissism, debauchery, selfishness – because this destructive ideology undermines the very tenets of our Representative Democracy.
