Motorcyclists say they’re being discriminated against

After several St. John’s city councillors have mused about looking into banning the sale of after-market motorcycle exhaust systems – some of which are designed to make motorcycles louder – the cyclists rallied. More than two dozen motorcyclists were at St. John’s City Hall Tuesday night to speak out against such a proposed ban on loud motorcycle exhaust systems. “We understand that there are people out there that are going downtown, cracking their pipes trying to make noise,” she said. “We believe very strongly that they should be ticketed but because there’s a few idiots out there, don’t try to target motorcyclists across Newfoundland and Labrador,” she said. Both sides want the province to weigh in on the issue.
