Default Upset Neighbors

Hi there,

I have the Coastal Vic/HotVic debaffled exhaust installed on the bike. I gave the neighborhood a 6a wake up call this morning. I also set off 7 car alarms.

These pipes have a lot to say when you open them up. Needless to say, my wife has been apologizing all morning. She grounded me. I can't ride for a week.

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have gutted stock pipes, but only open them up when out of the neighborhood. They still have some noise, but not as much as WOT...

Really glad you don't live near me. I've been on a motorcycle since I was about 5 years old. But I have always hated excessively loud pipes. A nice throaty note is very nice but 'loud' simply sucks. For many years I have instructed my wife, daughter and grand daughter convinced that 'loud pipes equals small penis'. They and all their friends agree 100%. The rider is obviously compensating for something, something not very good. More people than you may know feel that way about 'loud' pipes or the people who for some reason need the rest of society to know they can make noise. Loud pipes risk the motorcycle rights the rest of us enjoy.

If your pipes really aren't normally that LOUD, then maybe you're just a jerk for making them bark that way at 6am. Either way, sorry about the genetics thing.

It's similar to those who have their music so loud they can be heard polluting peoples ears many blocks away. There's usually a 99.999% chance that no one other than the offender cares one wit for their choice of music or the volume level. Install a good helmet head set and leave the rest of us alone.

All the best,

Mark

Need something to plug it into. Ma Vic decided we don't need no stinking headphone jacks. Now go forth and find that 0.001% of people who love your taste and play that funky music til you die.

Then we wonder where all this legislature is coming from, where they want motorcycles silenced for good.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

To say nothing of gun legislation. I never realized how many people live at the O.K. Corral.

DIVORCE AGREEMENT--
WRITTEN BY YOUNG COLLEGE STUDENT
The person who wrote this is a college student. Perhaps there is hope for us after all.

DIVORCE AGREEMENT

Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al: We have stuck together since the late 1950's for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.

Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way. Here is a our separation agreement:

Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

--We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.
--You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.
--Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.
--We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and the coal mines, and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel.
--You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell. You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them.

--We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street.
--You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens.
--We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO's and rednecks.
--We'll keep Bill O?Reilly, and Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood.
--You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.
--You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.
--We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values.
--You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.
--We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Volt and Leaf you can find.
--You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.
--We'll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right.
--We'll keep "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "The National Anthem."
--I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute "Imagine", "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing", "Kum Ba Ya" or "We Are the World".
--We'll practice trickle-down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.
--Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our flag.
--Since we believe that abortion in murder and not a right we will honor the sanctity of life.

Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like-minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you might think about which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

Sincerely,
John J. Wall
Law Student and an American

P.S. Also, please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin & Charlie Sheen, Barbara Streisand, & ( Hanoi ) Jane Fonda with you.

P.S.S. And you won't have to press 1 for English when you call our country.
