Big brother is watching and now listening.

More revenue generation and collection by the police. How about some action against actual crime? Yet another stealth tax on the motorist.

Just saw the article on the news.

Very annoying to see that the footage was all motorbikes, when, where I live at least, some of the worst culprits are modified cars.

Which come in two categories, genuine performance cars - an Audi RS V10 thing with a sports exhaust sounds awesome, and the kids in their grannies shopping cars with bean tins instead of silencers, tyres rubbing the wheel arches.

Or the ones with the turbo wastegates set up to sound like a machine gun on the over run. Dog hates those . :Bang

Local roundabouts look like GP circuits, the amount of rubber laid down by the local drifting fraternity, we can hear this late at night, no police around of course.

Awesome idea that, amount of cars that have de-cats , straight through pipes is getting silly.

yeah ok , occasionally you do get a noisy bike , but no where near as many as cars,,,,

My new Abarth is straight from factory with an Akropovic system that is a bit "boy racer" :angel
probably depends on how many revs you use when passing the noise pick up!
also depends on the "tone" of the exhaust too?
