I wonder if they let Beemer riders participate? If they do, count me in.

'Course you can! But, you have to use the playing cards/spokes routine, so you can make sounds like the big boyz.

I belong the the Legion Riders , but I ride a Yamaha.

My Harley got tired and I couldnt afford $22,000 for a new one. After buying the used Cruiser Yamaha for 7 Grand I wondered what took so long. I still like the Harley better but damn: Those Japs make some great motorcycles. Two years later I just change the oil and put new tires on it.

I tried that once, but I found out I don't have any spokes either. Damn cast aluminum wheels and quiet mufflers! I can't even get any parts to vibrate off!

My Softail's an '87. Got it about 5 years ago. It's a lot like me, stubborn at times; been around, and down, at times; old; many parts worn out; but still fun at a fever pitch on good days.

I'll just close my eyes and pretend that I'm riding a HOG instead of a Honda scoot ;o)

I've never owned a v-twin American bike yet. But I will someday. For commuting, my '88 K75C with bags is perfect. I had an old airhead Beemer but had to sell it.

Now I'm going to confess an ugly secret. Let's just keep this within FR. When I really want to get a quick thrill, I keep an old 2-stroke Yamaha riceburner in the garage. It sounds like Satan's weed eater and belches blue smoke, but it sure will put a silly smile on your face, real quick. There's nothing like pouring excessive quantities of gas, oil and air into a peaky 2-stroke to make you realize how small life's problems really are. Life is good. I gotta get some more synthetic oil in case a warm day comes along.

Well you can put any pipes on there you want, but here in North GA, lots of the best riding roads and even neighborhoods are being zoned 'no motorcycles allowed' or being heavily policed due to loud pipes. The non riders don't want the thunder. I got no thunder, but still I get lumped in with them.

You just uncovered the secret of ridin'. It can get to be pretty close to heaven, under the right circumstances. But, it is truly h*ll, if things go wrong. Just like life, only compacted into the time on the seat.

If the legislators really discover this true joy, it will probably be made illegal. Or maybe they'll discover what freedom is all about.

At 50 I still ride sport bikes, but I do have a callsign/nickname and lots of black motorcycle t-shirts. I think I qualify.

Is the American Motorcycle Association stepping in on this? Its fairly hard to close public roads just for noise. That said, I am seeing more sentiment in the riding community for the phrase "Loud pipes Lose Rights"

They can't really close public roads due to noise, they just put Sherriff cars everywhere on the weekends to make the good roads undesirable.

As to private communities, Neal Boortz recently said many Atlanta neighborhoods with covenants have been going motorcycle free lately due to noise complaints.

It's not only noise, it's also stupid riders. On GA hwy 180, the twistiest road I know, every weekend has several young street racers going off the side of a hill or trying to meld their molecules with a minivan. I can appreciate the thrill of racing, but ya just can't do it on public roads in most cases. Eventually the odds are gonna get ya.

Riders need to be sure they are not making too many enemies out there. I don't really blame the rural residents for complaining because they moved out there for the peace and quiet, and they don't want to get in a wreck with some street racer. When I ride in the country, I try to respect the locals and my own mortality.
