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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

If I did that to my neighbors, I'd be dodging bullets

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.

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.

To each there own, I personally grew up around cars and bikes that all have loud exhaust. I have loud exhaust on everything I own. Just what I like. V8 and V-twins were made to be heard. I know not everyone agrees but that's what is nice about not being like everyone. That being said I am considerate to my neighbors as much as they are to me. I also don't live in a suburb type of place. There are a few people's house I will buzz pretty good from time to time.

Who should get an F for plagiarism. They copied the whole idea from this:

Dear Red States...

We've decided we're leaving. We intend to form our own country, and we're taking the other Blue States with us.

In case you aren't aware, that includes Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and all the Northeast. We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation, and especially to the people of the new country of New California.

To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states. We get stem cell research and the best beaches. We get Elliot Spitzer. You get Ken Lay.

We get the Statue of Liberty. You get Dollywood.
We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom.
We get Harvard. You get Ole' Miss.
We get 85 percent of America's venture capital and entrepreneurs. You get Alabama.
We get two-thirds of the tax revenue, you get to make the red states pay their fair share.

Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the
Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a
bunch of single moms.

Please be aware that Nuevo California will be pro-choice and
anti-war, and we're going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at
once. If you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have
kids they're apparently willing to send to their deaths for no
purpose, and they don't care if you don't show pictures of their
children's caskets coming home. We do wish you success in Iraq, and hope that the WMDs turn up, but we're not willing to spend our
resources in Bush's Quagmire.

With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80 percent of the country's fresh water, more than 90 percent of the pineapple and lettuce, 92 percent of the nation's fresh fruit, 95 percent of America's quality wines (you can serve French wines at state dinners) 90 percent of all cheese, 90 percent of the high tech industry, most of the U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools, plus Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.

With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with 88 percent of all obese Americans (and their projected health care
costs), 92 percent of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100 percent of the
tornadoes, 90 percent of the hurricanes, 99 percent of all Southern
Baptists, virtually 100 percent of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh,
Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.

We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.

Additionally, 38 percent of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62 percent believe life is sacred
unless we're discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44 percent say that evolution is only a theory, 53 percent that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61 percent of you crazy b*****ds believe you are people with higher morals then we lefties.

By the way, we're taking the good pot, too. You can have that dirt
weed they grow in Mexico.

Peace out,
Blue States

No I'm not that rude. I am the President of the homeowners association in my subdivision. Some thieves were stealing the AC units from our clubhouse this morning. I went to catch up with them to get the tag number. Ended up calling following them and calling the police. Got both units back.

They hated and wanted to shot me this morning. Now they love me.

I'm still grounded though.:(

I don't think I'll be getting any complaints with the Tri-Ovals, unless I simply open them up and become a Tard :crzy:

Talk about loud + annoying. Whenever I get a Rocket passing me and their revving the thing it sounds like a fricken loud a$$ buzz saw. :( I'll take the loud V twin any day over the buzz saw. thumb up

BTW, to those that talk about getting out the weapons and taking care of the guy with the loud pipes, can you say "Internet Muscles" :rolleyes:

Oh I get it.

There is a litmus test for good pipes and bad pipes.

His modified pipes- bad.
Yours- good.

He's a menace to the neighborhood peace.

He should channel that derogatory behavior into more acceptable behavior like bigger speakers and a killer amp to broadcast inspirational tunes on his headset while he uses his GPS to navigate or having a chat with his road buds on the CB, all perfectly acceptable safe distractions not at all uncivilized like the raucous roar of an unimpeded V Twin.

Yep. Damn you barned01 for not living up to the rules of polite society. Can't you be satisfied with moderately loud pipes? It's people like you that make it hard on the AMA to pretend to defend the rights of people like you.
