I can't even completely blame the plaintiff, because it's the bottom feeder lawyer that told him it might work.. Maybe the state should go after frivolous lawsuits with vengeance and start dis-barring some of these lawyers for wasting the court's time.

Well, its private property, so no. Do all the burnouts you want on your own property... but if the sound is at a certain level in my house down the street... then, no. Take it somewhere else.

SBB claims in its lawsuit that burnouts are among several activities patrons participate in while "expressing their manliness and macho, as all males are prone and inclined to do to a greater or lesser degree." The bar says a burnout is an expressive motorcycle act that is protected by the First Amendment.

Ah, I so want to be in court when the judge writes the ruling on the expressively manly act to be an asshole biker.

The regulation doesn't affect the act, you silly person, it only affects the smoke and noise. Unless the conduct itself is restricted, cities can put all the time/place/manner restrictions on you they want.

Asinine is a good tag. Assuming the biker bar is privately owned property and they are not doing their burnouts in the city streets, the city should have no rights to limit it.

This. Tires losing traction is a mechanical failure in a vehicle, intentionally causing one falls well outside the intended use of the vehicle and it's thus reasonable to ban it in places where normal vehicle operation is legit. I wouldn't say reckless driving, exactly, but it falls under the same legal rationale on engine braking in your 18-wheeler or talking on a cell phone while driving, I would guess.

Headline of article assumes a bit much: Does biker machismo fall under First Amendment freedoms? I love the fact that these tards think that machismo consists of spinning a motorcycle loudly in a circle while a bunch of other tards hold up their beers and cheer.

They are not limiting the burnouts. They are limiting the pollution and noise. First Amendment rights are not absolute; and I'll bet this will easily fall within the time/place/manner restrictions that are perfectly allowable, even if expressing one's manliness via burnouts is protected speech.

Bikers, as a group, are the biggest attention whore d-bags there is. I like how they pull up to whatever establishment, not even going in, sit there revving their engine to make sure everyone is looking at him, then do a burnout and make it as loud as possible.

Why do you think that because it is private property that you can do whatever you want? I could fill a page with things that can't be done on private property.

Did you miss the part where this is on private property? Perfectly legal EXCEPT when the noise or fumes/smoke leave said private property and become a nuisance to neighbors.

What?! I can't declare my manlyness by running illegal pipes without a muffler. Yes I heard 'better loud than dead'. However it is on the list of why I wish I could run over one biker to make an exampe to the rest. Also, I do know running a straight pipe in SC is illegal, so they can go that route and reduce alot of this noise right there. Otherwise trailer the bike to a vacant race track and hold the event there. They are not hard to find, although the beer would have to be brought over.
 
2012-07-01 07:11:24 PM  
It seemed like last year they came up with a decent compromise.

Horry County cracked down on burnouts during bike festivals last year, issuing a special event permit to SBB that limited the activity to between noon and 9 p.m. and only at the rear of the bar's building. This year, the county issued a permit that banned burnouts altogether.

Oh so this. Try living in Milwaukee where every jackoff with a room temperature IQ, 350 credit score and about $250 downpayment seems to be able to get one and think we all enjoy hearing them at all hours. At least I worked for two companies that insured their bikes so I could at least get paid something for their asshattery.

As a rider, I wish my fellow riders would stop being such douchbags. it brings us unnecessary attention. I have an after-market exhaust, but I've installed a silencer to make it quieter for every day use. I don't want to annoy my neighbors. I also don't do burn-outs for the same reason.
We need to act respectably in order for the farking cagers to respect us.

I'd say 1/10. Again, don't do it in front of my house. But people enjoy the extremely loud rev of an engine. Its fun. Its why I love going to NASCAR races. I just don't want one outside my front stoop.

Indeed, but just like with loud pipes, the people that are into it are essentially incapable of realizing what dicks they are being, or seeing the potential consequences.

I don't know what burnouts have to do with "manliness and macho"; they're just fun sometimes.

Hey those bikes cost a lot of money. Money is speech.
Bikers win.

Maybe if the bikes were made of money. Hrmm, why is it that some property is speech only when it's convienent to those in power.

I've actually been to this bar, and It's not as crazy as this article likes to portray. The picture in the article highlights a festival with a bike burning out, and it seems like any of the offenses are due to some festival or event. If there was a true safety issue here, i think that should be looked into. I've seen a few people go down because they have had a few drinks and tried to do something stupid. Regulate the hell out of that. However, if this is safe enjoyment, at a reasonable time of day, I don't see any problems.

Other things:
-suck squeeze bang blow - the strokes of a four stroke internal combustion engine.

-I'm all for having a loud bike, mine is loud as hell. It absolutely helps more people know where I am.

I'd have given you a 1/10 but you've gotten a number of bites.

I've seen very few bikers doing what you describe. Maybe someone that just got their first bike, but that's about it. You'll see very few bikers that have been around for a while doing that kind of thing unless it's at a bike event of some sort.

Bikers, is there a particular reason some of you have to sit in front of a crowded outside bar and keep revving your engine for 5 minutes before at last finally doing one last loud roar of a rev and peeling off? I can't imagine that these guys interrupting a bunch of conversations think that everyone out there thinks that they look cool, or something.

I live in an area where a lot of nurses live. They have odd schedules, and need to sleep during the day, and some sleep in early evening, to get ready for their late shifts.

Unfortunately, we have small-penis big-tailpipe bikers that rev up and cruise by, without a thought for the needs of the local people.

Bikers, if you get in an accident, don't you want your medical crew to be awake and well-rested?...

Bikers - keep your bikes quiet.

As someone who lives in a town that gets to "enjoy" a large, annual "bike show", allow me to point out that they do it around bike events, not just at them.

We have muscle cars, a bike show and a ricer show every year. By many, many magnitudes the bikers are the loudest, rudest and just generally most obnoxious group. They have no respect for other drivers, people living in the area, or really anybody but themselves. The ricers are a very, VERY distant second behind them.

I would venture to say that my negative exposure to these bikers over the years has led me to such a level of disrespect for the clique as a whole that I actually hate people who enjoy motorcyles because of the conditioning, which is something I can't say for all the other identifiable groups that show up every year.

When you're worse than goofy teenagers with hopped-up Civics doing bleach-burnouts in an alley, you're really, really bad.

You all must have had some shiatty experiences around bikers or something. Around here there's a fair number of bikers and rednecks with the jacked up trucks, oversized tires and straight exhausts, and it's the rednecks who prove more annoying. I hear a hell of a lot more people gunning their trucks or muscle cars late at night as if they're trying to impress someone with their vehicle than I do bikers. But that's just my area. The rednecks also tend to be dumber, more asshatish and willfully ignorant.
 
2012-07-01 08:24:42 PM  
Most bikers I know aren't the douchebag kind. Most are just out for a ride because there's only a few good months of riding in Minnesota. But as soon as I can hear your motor (I don't care what kind of vehicle) more than the 747s flying over my house, you are officially a dickwad.

And to the farkholes saying the sound helps other motorists' awareness, put on some hot-pink assless chaps and some blinking rave lights if you're so farking 'concerned'.
 
2012-07-01 08:45:10 PM  
The article makes it seem like it's an event during a bike week or something. If it was all the time I could see people nearby getting upset. Between noon and nine for a week doesn't seem that bad, though. Heck, fireworks for the fourth make a heck of a lot of noise, too. But people like to biatch about things they don't like, I guess.

/If I lived near this event, I'd probably be hanging out there, even though I don't have a bike
