  7. Their goal is to have all motorcycles sound like a Gold Wing. Meanwhile the 1500 watt boomer stereos with atomic sub woofers will just continue on.

    Maine has a similar law, but not so specifically worded. Every year bikers here hold their collective breath wondering if the pandering politicians will pass a law that is actually enforceable. Only a matter of time I'm sure...:(
