Hey, you 9'ers up in Edmonton . . . You might want to hold off on that purchase of those new after-market pipes you've been eyeing up. Your city council is ready to pass a new law to ban loud motorcycles. They are setting their tolerance levels at 92 decibels at idle and 96 in motion (a lawn mower can be 90 dbs at close range). The cops have already equipped themselves with the necessary noise measuring equipment and will deal out $250 fines to those in violation. This is no joke! Other cities (Vancouver and Winnipeg) are already considering doing the same. It's odd they would aim this law just at motorcycles.
