Don’t be fooled into thinking “This doesn’t apply to me!"
MLA Lorne Mayencourt has put forth a private members bill to lower the

Before you think it only applies to the “Loud Pipes Save Lives” advocates
please be aware that many bikes including Hondas and Yamahas that are stock

no standard. The Motorcycle Moped Industry Council is presently working on
While BCCOM does not support illegal pipes it also must protect the rights
of motorcyclists from a bill that will only further escalate the problem
with a flawed testing system. The issue here is enforcement of legislation
that is already in place, use it!
The Coalition asks that you take the time to email your MLA to say you do
not agree with this bill and to use the legislation already in place.
