Hello,
On June 6th I spent a lot of time replying to your post under Massachusetts Legislation - what to do.
But it disappeared.

Thank you,

What to do? Any suggestions? Considering the following, how can I reply to the police when they say, "there is nothing we can do because the law is subjective. Some people do not think that a motorcycle is loud and others think it is too loud?" Analysis: by T.P.S. "The existing Massa...

Is there any proof that Loud Pipes save lives? I read the Hurt report and found no suggestion that Loud muffers would be a countermeasure. I think it an urban myth promoted by those who find it psychologically necessary to make public noise. The problem with motorcycle noise is growing as the number...

I don't use the line loud pipes saves lives, if you really want to make a difference tell the Government to enforce after market parts to comply with EPA regulations. If, a car can goto any auto shop repair to fix their car and use after market parts. Why is it that motorcycles can not? Its a big s...

I've always felt that the noise meant 'dang...

Larry's comments are interesting. I bought some quiet rock and installed it on a ceiling and I think it is working but it is too soon to tell. I called the company and they gave me a local lumber yard who could order it. It is fairly expensive but I plan to use it on exterior walls along with the me...

Good News in my Massachusetts town... a local person wanted to start a motocross racetrack and got 200 signatures on a petition for a special town meeting to vote to modify bylaws. Usually these special town meeting pass articles that would not get through the annual town meeting. The bylaw change ...
