The Harley Owners’ Group are coming to Canberra

Che has tipped me off to a planned National Rally of the Harley Owners Group with over 1,300 registrations (and god knows how many just rocking up).

They’re planning a “Thunder Ride” over over 1,000 bikes from the race course, along the GDE, Capital Hill, Kings Avenue, and Parkes Way concluding at Gold Creek.

21 October will be a big one.

What’s Your opinion?

Harley Davidson, turning petrol into noise since 1903

Without the side effect of horsepower…

I think it will be awesome. The sound of a Harley is evocative of an era when motorbikes – especially Harleys (or Triumph/BSA for Poms) symbolised youthful rebellion and freedom.

They won’t be going very fast round the circles, though. The old ones steer like a refrigerator on wheels.

Perhaps the politically correct brigade who want to harass these visitors – who are Australians and have every right to enjoy their national capital – should be demanding drug testing and sniffer dogs for all conference and convention delegates. After all, the laws are there to be enforced, right?

Loud pipes save lives. Losers in their cars with stereos up loud, pedestrians with earphones on, and cyclists in whatever world they live in, are dangerous to bikes.

It’s all about being noticed by the morons.

No, it’s all about being a wanker.

Don’t mind much insulated in the car, but on the bicycle at the lights, oh, my ears.

As for warning, I’ve been riding in the Cotter and the wind+helmet masked the moto about to overttake me.

It’s debateable how many will actually make it to Canberra. After all, they’re riding harleys.

1000 Harleys all roaring through Canberra would be a sight to behold. Junior Jethro is almost as excited as he gets in the lead-up to Christmas.

If they fine all of them who don’t have mufflers, it’ll pay for light rail.

I recently found out that my stock bike and stock exhaust are well over the legal noise limit. And I really don’t think it is that loud.

Having said that, I occasionally hear a bike which is so loud it isn’t funny. Some of those people could probably stand to add a baffle or two.

I feel fully vindicated in directing y’all to South Park whilst I call these guys FAGS!

That’s some convoy. Will Alan Jones be donning some leathers too?

A glorious opportunity for those responsible for upholding vehicle noise legislation to conduct on the spot checks and issue defect notices to non-complying bikes. After all, without meaningful enforcement what’s the point in having laws?
