The existing legislation would fix it if it were enforced.

Be honest here it's been that way in Germany for a LONG time rather than 'already happening'...

True...."spreading" would have been a better choice of word.

I’ve been quite impressed with some modern exhausts, have they changed the tests or is there some trickery?

absolutely quiet bikes for me. I'd say it's probably 90% likely that I wouldn't have ended up in court for speeding if I didn't have a race can on my 9R maybe 7 years ago.

I also realise that most folk don't like loud bikes or cars, especially the neighbours.

It’s 100% likely you wouldn’t have ended up in court if you hadn’t speeded .. wink

No, they are saying the existing noise limit is fine so don't reduce it.

No, that would be getting rid of the existing limits.

Keep the existing limits and start enforcing them. Selfish idiots dealt with.

Tighten the limits to penalise responsible people who aren't disturbing anyone,. Selfish idiots unaffected.

Anti Social "look at me" modifiers of bikes and cars, be they individuals or companies are being destructive to the freedoms we have in the UK over those more draconian countries.

Modified includes wheels, headlamps exhausts suspension etc....banned if not Orginal OEM part

(Guess who supports this....yep....the big manufactures who will expand their "tested" accessory range to clip more revenue off the back of the restrictions)
Cite and link to actual existing legislation (not proposals stretching back a decade at least) please.

Never had much faith in "the authorities" enforcing the noise regs.
Reached the point of having to take certain steps more than once, e.g. the Jap import Nissan with the 4 inch exhaust walking me up at 05.45each day. Silence was restored thanks to a jacket potato coupled with expanding foam. Funny enough his replacement silencer was pretty much silent.

I can't really see an issue with loud pipes - how many bikers ride around late at night causing a kerfuffle? Only the wkers on 125cc singles/L plates with straight through systems. I saw a KTM Superduke R yesterday with an Acra pipe, apparently no baffle. Sounded awesome!

Why --do you think---the anti-social clatter farting out from the backside of a MBike is only a problem at night ?
