    Common sense dictates you suspend the noise ordinance during this event. FPD sense dictates you take advantage and bilk people that were invited to show off.

      I am so do glad that they have out citations for engine reving. There is no reason for it whatsoever! Other than just to make noise! They would give out the exact same tickets to people that are playing their stereos too loud so why should they treat these jerks any different? “Ooooh look at me…. My bike is LOUD! ! Aren’t you impressed?” No, actually we’re not. Yes we realize you like your loud engine….Now please use that loud engine to take yourself somewhere else besides acting like a juvenile and hurting people’s ears.
