Please! This has nothing to do with what Canadians believe. This is an issue of bad journalism. To get to 140 dB, you would have to be very near to a top fueler launching. In reality, any rider that thinks "loud pipes saves lives", is in la la land and probably wanting to buy a Fish carb for his/her car. In Vancouver, the overwhelming issue for the cops is the fact the the Hell's Angels are the largest organized crime group, and hassling them seems to be some sort of bizarre sport for law enforcement.
