I wish they applied it to Harleys. Stupid loud pipes are worse than any stereo.

Sacrilegious Charles!  Complaining about loud Harleys is not permitted!  Harley Davidson motorcycles are a big part of the white upper middle class and upper class Baby Boomer Culture.  50 and 60 something Empty Nesters like this get to do whatever they want to relive the glory days of their rebellious youth...where they used to and continue to get away with things that younger generations never can and never could.

Now if you are a 20 something who can only afford a Sport Compact Performance Honda with a set of "Rice Pipes" - Watch out for the PoPo. 

While Goshen and Elkhart recently changed their ordinances back now that allow "Crusing" that was allowed for the Boomers now that they want to do it again and was never permitted for my generation, The Michiana Sport Compact Performance Club never has meetings in Elkhart County because they get so harassed by the Police.  I once worked for a business that asked them many years ago to do a promotion for us and have a meeting, members would not do it since most would not dare to tread in the Police State of Elkhart County.

Charles - you are requesting that government treat everyone the same with enforcement of the laws.  Unequal enforcement has never been worse in America.

Someday when my generation has the time to reminisce about Crusing Main Street - Maybe they can change the laws back again so we get to go through Police checkpoints and pulled over for things like too much tinting on the windows or accent lighting violations and revisit the "glory days" of our youth.

haha, they used to.  Then the Blue Knights had a sit down with Mr. Moore and straightened him out.  I would be interested to see how much money bikers spend on the various rides and bike nights around town.

I don't really mind the "fart can" exhaust from a little rice box. That's more humorous than annoying. I'm not a big fan of the rumble of a Harley but that is no where near as annoying as listening to barking dog (especially small dogs) at all hours of the day. Stereos playing clown music(rap) with the bass jacked all the way up ranks a close second.



I also wonder this....how many poor baby zebras had to die to make that god awful shirt that Big Dick has on.Hehe

Interesting.  Anytime I called the cops to report a noise ordinance violation, no one was ever cited.  Yeah, I suppose that's progress?

I did not google that, no. I guess I was thinking it would be a smaller localized group with no web presence.

So, in effect, law enforcement pressured the mayor to exempt themselves from the city's noise ordinance. Nice.

That's the kind of crap that really irks me.
