Why do their mufflers have to be so loud? Isn't there such a thing as a motorcycle with a quiet muffler?
Don't know but yesterday, in church our pastor told us he had taken his Harlew and ventured down to BBandB.

Don't know, but I always had a huge laugh when I passed the Welcome to Fayetteville signs that say "please ride quietly".

I've always been told that the loud mufflers are used to alert motorists that they are there.

Well, what did everyone think of the event? This was my first year and I "worked" down there. I use quotes because my job isn't truly work, especially when it involves running around, meeting people and drinking beer. ;o)

I must say, I was quite disappointed with the music. It was all bands singing classic rock covers, from what I heard. I would think they could bring in MUCH BETTER for blues bands just by the sheer size of the event and the noteriety.

Otherwise, it was a blast. Just fun, fun, fun and loud, loud, loud. Everyone I met, bikers and non-bikers, were polite and friendly and I didn't see anyone get too out of hand.
