Sorry everyone, I'm not just being obtuse. I love loud pipes. I've had one on almost every 4 stroke I've ever had. I live close to the A34 in Newcastle under Lyme and I hear bikes and cars really going for it on a miraculously un camera'd section and I love the noise. Sorry.

Newcastle under Lyme used to have some brilliant night clubs in the 70's and 80's. Used to get sent on courses at Stone, not that far away.

Austria is imposing a 95db limit on motorcycles on 100km of Tyrolean roads. The fine is 220 euros. Cars are excluded from this ruling.


A lot of standard bikes are going to fall foul of this legislation

  He's not young about 70, with an 90's Supra, done up like Fast and Furious, it's loud, way louder than my ZX10R with it'a race Akrapovic with the baffle removed.  He often of late, he starts it up revving it on his drive way for half an hour, it's caused many an argument with his neighbours!
That both hilarious and annoying at the same time. Time for a potato up his exhaust i think.

If that's not prejudiced & biased lawmaking, I don't know what is. How did this even get passed.

It got passed by people who drive cars...
