I knew I would get some people mad about this post. SO i was just wondering what the difference is between a dirt bike riding on a dried up lake, a jet ski "screaming" along your waterfront property, or a Harley Davidson driving down your street?

Well when we had a lake, in 2003/4/5 b4 it all but dried up. Some idiot thought it fun to fly around on a jet ski, illegal as it is. And the neighbors complained and it was stopped.

Now ATV's and dirtbikes occasionally drive around. Hernando county spent thousands of tax payers money to provide an ATV/dirtbike area. So use that not a dried up lake surrounded with properties and its illegal.

Hardly's. Riding a bike on the road is legal BUT some bikers.....and I am a biker... tho not on a hardly, take off the stock pipes and put on illegal pipes as they sound nice and loud.....thats replacing stock pipes and putting illegal ones on. Some towns/cities have ordinances for that. They state that people in cars can then hear them coming?

So basically one is legal, one isnt.

Laws etc etc, are for the benefit/safety of everybody.

"Loud pipes save lives" is what they say. They're just big babies that haven't outgrown the noise making phase. I ride my quiet scooter on the road just fine.

Its weird about the pipes. If you face a car/bike truck or whatever coming towards you, you'll hardly hear it. BUT instead of wearing black and blending in with the road, if bikers would wear a bright stripe and least you'll see em. My bike is very big bike with twin headlights and is silver, you'll have to be blind and stupid NOT to see it..........but people do

There's nothing illegal about riding a dirtbike on a dry lake (or on any other private property) WITH THE CONSENT OF THE PROPERTY OWNER. You can call the police all day long if you see people riding dirtbikes in a dry lake, however unless you own that property or the property is owned by the government there is nothing that the police will do. The act of riding the dirtbike isn't illegal, the only illegal act is trespassing.

The only other thing that could possibly make it illegal is if the decibel level coming from the dirtbike violates the county's noise ordinance, however noise ordinances are basically unenforceable now because of the new decibel requirements and the fact that officers don't carry around decibel meters to measure the noise.
