How loud is too loud?

Postby TA3001 » Wed Dec 13, 2017 8:16 pm

I wonder to myself frequently about whether or not motorcycle riders actually have ears that insulate against the almost deafening noise they produce on occasions.

My ears are a bit oversensitive I'll admit, but some motorbike noise levels are just way off the scale! Such as the three that just went past in the CBD right now.

Anyhow, my question was inspired by the obvious culprit. Are there no noise limits for these vehicles? Seems pointless enforcing them anyhow.

It's interesting because I know of a few people who have been contacted by the EPA/state police stating that their vehicles are too loud and that they need to get it fixed otherwise the car will be deemed unroadworthy. One would assume the same would apply to motorcycles?

Cheers,
Mitch :lol:
