Darwin should take care of this pretty shortly, but I have seen more young people with bikes lately. I'm used to thinking of buying a motorcycle as an old man's hobby.

With more and more people unable to afford the cost of new cars, expect to see more motorcycles on the road.

I'm perfectly cool with bikers, but is there any way they can avoid revving their engines in residential neighborhoods at 3 AM?

I'm no expert, but it seems that there are three types of bikers: the Harley riders who are really serious about their bikes and bike culture; the weekend warriors in those three-wheeled Honda things with their wives; and the "egg beater" crowd of young guys who ride those loud bikes all hunched over and weave in and out of traffic at incredible (and dangerous) speeds.

There are many more types. The ones who are most 'serious' in what I believe you're referring to are the BMW riders. They're usually the ones that ride in any weather, great distances, and not just from bar to bar for bike nights.

To me, there are two. The minority, who take great care of their bikes and are law abiding, and the majority, who whine and cry about "watching for motorcycles, because they are everywhere", but yet make their own rules as they go.
