    Ah, that explains it, to understand your logic, one only has to realize that any other opinion but yours is a "diminished thought process" and therefore wrong. As I've stated 100 times before, I get what you folks are saying. It's just time to grow up and move on. You tried. It didn't work out. A for effort. Would a gold star make you feel better?

      Protest as much as need but you've proven with every post that you don't get. Now your confusions has extended to believe that government is opposed to preparing legislation to deal with this problem ("You tried. It didn't work."). Neither level has said it was opposed to it. In fact, what is happening is both levels of government are debating over who has the authority to enact the legislation. This is just another example of how you're not getting it. Your reasoning skills are limited.

    Oh, here we go again, this letter and another story among the top headlines today. Three or four people who work at the Telegram also live downtown and now they have to shove their views down our throats taking advantage of their employer! I wonder why the other media outlets aren't reporting on this foolishness? This is going to be just like that crowd out in the Goulds who were trying to get Water and Sewer, isn't it?

      Still can't grasp it can you.

      Can grasp it quite fine thanks!! DT does not want motorcycles or their riders in the area. DT asks City and Province to do something about it. Neither City nor Province agrees with DT. DT Kicks, whines, screams, complains, write letters, etc. DT still doesn't get way, kicks, whines, screams, complains, write letters again. Still don't get way. DT Continues to embarrass itself over such an irrelevant issue. Repeat! Sound about right for just about every issue that pops up DT?

      It would have been quicker to just admit you don't get it rather than ramble on with the proof that you don't get it.

      Would be a lot simpler if you bought a bottle of rum, a good set of headphones and some nice relaxing music.

      Ah, that explains it. To understand your logic one must first undergo a diminished thought process.

    The irony in all of this is that the vast majority of riders who use straight pipes on their motorcycles actually have to ride with ear plugs so they can tolerate the sound of their own machines. How is that for your safety factor - loud pipes and drivers who can't hear!

    GREAT follow-up, Peter. Take THAT, Hawco!

    I have been riding motorcycles for 30 + years. I am not interested in putting loud pipes on my bikes but believe that the engineers who originally designed the bike know better than some of the aftermarket suppliers. I do not have a problem with bikers who install loud pipes. However, I do have a problem with bikers who go out of their way to try and get noticed in urban settings by overrevving engines just to make noise. The safety argument is mostly B/S.

    The one and only reason they remove the baffles from the exhaust is to draw attention to themselves...it's a grade six mentallity of ...look at me everyone!...Look at me!!! I have a loud Harley! What they don't, or can't understand is that people are actually laughing at them...the louder they make their bikes, the more stupid they appear.

      John Smith, that could also describe those who partake in sipping on their lattee's at a DT coffee bistro. After all they only do that as well to look "hip" or "artsy".
