    Around where I am, they ride around past 1 am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They wake people up.

    I live in a state that doesn't have a helmet law and love that "loud pipes saves lives" mantra, apparently bandanas do also.

    My 5.0 exhaust is nowhere near as loud as a Harley.
    Definitely agree with you, and a nice 5.0 with a B cam and open chamber duals are much more pleasant to listen to.
    In reference to the Assault on Mt Mitchell...

    That was just like watching a real motocross race... in super slow motion. Hands down the most boring form of "bike" racing I think I've ever seen.

    Most extreme point of distraction was a mother with kid on the back saying "bon appetit" while passing an outdoor restaurant.

    Why in the hell bother?
    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.

    Harley making them is "proof" they are motorcycles? Interesting logic.

    So all those old Peugeot steel bikes are actually cars?

    I see kids at the local NCAA Div 1 university riding no-hands, while texting on the phone, while riding in traffic.

    Seems Geneva is a bit more grownup about being an utter idiot.

    Sound logic. Here's proof that carbon bikes are actually cars as well:

    I had a steel Peugeot many, many years ago. I put lots of miles on that bike. It was heavy. Downtube shifters, state of the art at the time. Shimano groupo. I only gave it away 6-7 years ago and I regret it, but it was a Big asking for his Little. He was rehabbing it. He was in Big Brothers. It was untouched for a few decades.
