Well, I personally dislike the seriously loud straight pipe Harleys. That MUST be the source of the complaints. A HD or sport bike with a decently audible pipe on it, sure it may be slightly loud, but I'll bet it usually isn't enough to get someone to dail in a complaint.
But god fucking damn those fucking straight piped Harleys. I'm fucking sitting In my car and my ears feel like they're bleeding.
Go for it.
96db doesn't sound too unreasonable.in excess of 92 decibels when idling and 96 decibels when moving

Is it 525 yet ?
Bring it on,,,,,,,,sooner the better.
excuse me, i have an emergency, and a complaint, there's entirely too many people having way more fun than is humanly possible in a 48 hour period!..
cant they see i'm watching NCIS reruns...?? how dare they impede upon my peace and quiet .. ENOUGH BINGING ALREADY!!
Its Kelowna. Can't we just tell them to turn their hearing aids down?
*ducks rocks in my glass house in Victoria*
i was thinking the same thing...
Oh noes, where will the Calgary folks haul their big ass boats and OCC vanity bikes to ride?
More BCCOM dredged up propaganda. The majority do not appreciate the unnecessary and intrusive noises referred to in the article. On one hand Adele says BCCOM does not support loud pipes but then she posts this link.
I live in Kelowna.
I want a proper clamp down.
Yes, with proper rules and guide lines. Regulated.
I don't have a hearing aid.
I also shouldn't need ear plugs to sleep at night.
The quieter it is, the more an ubaffled asshole machine stands out.
chicken strips are a sign of intelligence
unless you're at the track ;)
The problem and advantage of it being a bylaw is that it is just a bylaw and not really much of a threat.
For that reason I like the idea of it being a bylaw and not a Provincial issue.
Also 92-96db is much better than our current 91db across the board.
yea honestly, some of the bikes on the road are ridiculous. I could hear a sport bike a block behind me while on my own bike. Too much? I think so. Last time I was in Kelowna there was a cigarette boat that turned on at 9am outfront the hotel and as it idlied off the warf an out to the lake the windows were vibrating. Also too much? absolutely.
