Ride The Wind

In nine days we have the heralded/dreaded Bike Week weekend when the Overseas Highway fills up with slow moving and noisy pirates on Harley Davidsons stopping on the way from Miami to indulge in the annual Poker Run to Key West. It's a way to get some people into town in the tourist month of the year.

However it does have it's drawbacks. Noise is the big complaint from residents and law enforcement comes out in force. I will be working that Saturday night and it's guaranteed to be busy with endless traffic stops and calls from residents shuddered awake by loud pipes. Loud pipes dont save lives, they just piss people off. And eventually pissed off people vote to ban motorcycles. Get a clue.

A lone Goldwing enjoying the view is the antithesis. Good for him.

Dear Conch:

Sooner or later, cash-strapped municipalities are going to enforce noise restrictions ans a lot of bikers are going to be unhappy. My policy is "Loud shirts save lives." I won't worry until the fashion police are armed.
