All right... who is it?

6am ferry at Southworth. Rode next to a Harley whose pipes were so goddam loud I couldnít hear the music playing inside my helmet. Sincerely felt sorry for every house we rode by.

Put the baffles back in. From a fellow rider: that is fucking ridiculous.

Mom didnt give him enough attention as a kid. I dont mind loud motors when they sound sweet, but to me harleys sound like a whoopee cushion thru a megaphone.

I like the sound of a good set of pipes, even if they’re a little loud.

But this was so bad that when he passed a car in front of us, I just stayed behind the car. There’s no chance in hell I’d willingly ride next to someone with pipes like that.

Of course he insisted on leaving his bike on while we waited for the ferry to unload even though the other 5 of us turned out bikes off. And who do you think was the first one to start their bike getting off the ferry?

How old do you think the bike was? If less than 25 years he could be cited under subsection 3 below. Probably qualifies under subsection 1 as well, which is not limited as to age.

(And I've had occasion to wish ferry operators could write tickets)

My guess is early 2000s. Was in good shape. Iíd say it was a good looking bike if it didnít have the loudest, most obnoxious pipes Iíve ever heard.
