    great article. We need to do our part to keep our rights even if it means buying a off-road pipe for an MXer to make it quieter than stock.

    It seems that the target isn't the exhaust, it's the 4 stroke. People have been putting headers on cars since before we were born to allow the engine to breathe. The 2 stroke seemed like NASA refined it, after looking at the results of the latest 2T 250 class. The expansion chamber and silencer tamed the noise very well, but the initial strike was over the visible blue smoke. So they would use air pollution to get rid of the proper tool, and then complain about the effects of noise to expel the notion of off-road riding all together. So WE should have drawn the line when they began taking our bikes. Instead, most (untalented) people created hype and pointed out that the 4T is "more tractable" and "easier to handle". What should have happened is that NOBODY should have bit the apple. We need to unite and demand our 2T bikes back!

    Yeah, let us know how that works out for you.

    So far, so good... Yamaha & KTM

    The article highlights the starstruck youngster who feels he needs to open up the exhaust on his 4 stroke. Duh?

    Hey, In come tacks.
    As much as I dislike the modern 4 stroke, this isn't a 4 stroke vs 2 stroke issue. It's a consideration for others issue. The fact that the 4 stroke noise seems to carry further simply means that the 4 stroke guys need to be wary of adding louder exhausts. Regardless of your type of bike, quiet is good for us all.

    ok in my opinion there is one kind of dirt bike, one that gets you from A to B. i have both a 2 stroke and two 4 strokes and i love all 3. there really cant be a fight about the two. its like comparing apples and oranges, you can eat both but they are not the same and should not be compared as much as they are! its all personal opinion. also with the loudness factor i dont think some one cares who would call the cops if itts a high pitched whine or a loud deap groan (dont know how to explain) they will call the cops either way.

    A lot of my favorite trails are being closed down to this same situation and it really bums me out, I hope something can get worked out so I can ride those trails again!

    we lost another track now.

    One of my favorite facilities just lost the battle. I thought of this post here and thought I would share it as yet another example.

    Current management is relocating to Delaware.

    You would think the industry themselves would have addressed the issue. With less and less places to ride because of the noise, it has to affect sales at some point. Personally, Im happily stuck in the past. My newest bike is a 1981 YZ465.......
