But Fred, M-80s are illegal. :)

Seriously though, I have to agree with you. Maybe its the whole age/wisdom equation, I don't know.

10 years ago I owned an IronHead Sportster with 2" straights and I made sure everyone knew it every chance I got.

This past weekend, I'm crankin up the road on my V92C w/stage I turnouts (factory) and I start to think to myself "man, these things are loud as hell". Yesterday, I was shopping the internet for a new set of muffs.

I think alot of it has to do with the gargantuan size of these modern V-Twins. Used to be Harley was king of the hill with the 1340 and such. Nowadays, if it ain't over 1500, it never gets off the drawing board.

You put a set of 2.5" shorties on a 120" S&S V-Twin and you are gonna rattle windows for blocks, no doubt about it.

I think a little common sense could go along way to fixing this issue. If not, these towns in Florida are going to be at the top of a growing list. For a collection of people that are already scrutinized for everything we do, we can't afford that kind of attention.

The problem is, getting these folks to hear what you're saying :)

Yeah, that's the same reason the Marine Corps established the Toys for Tots Foundation. They're just trying to improve their public image. We all know they can't actually care about kids. After all, we wouldn't want someone writing their congressman and getting the Marine Corps outlawed.

Only the members of society that have been annointed by ignorant bigots like yourself actually care about kids, right? A$$
If your "demographic or rider group" doesn't give a sh1t about doing things for others, don't badmouth someone else for doing it.
