    CHP will be out in force to assist in traffic control for this event. Too bad the CHP can't muster the courage to cite illegally loud motorcycles that roam the Napa Valley. I wonder sometimes if the CHP are frightened of the guys on these bikes or if the officers are friends of the bikers. Makes no sense how there can be so many officers parked and just hanging out during a bicycle event, yet they will claim they are too busy to ever write tickets for illegally loud pipes on motorcycles.

    I used to have respect for CHP officers, but seeing how the bikers with loud pipes are not cited, I can't help but think that they have lost a lot of professional pride and don't take their job very seriously.

    And just how did you determine these bikes have illegally loud exhaust? Do you have a Db meter on you at all times? Just because you don't like motorcycles nobody else should be able to ride? Seems fair.

    I agree that that the noise from illegal bikes negatively impacts what is otherwise a beautiful area. The bikes can be cited without a decibel meter based on California Vehicle Code 27150. When the bikers are allowed to ride without obeying the law, it sends a message that lawlessness is acceptable. This empowers riders of bikes with illegal exhaust systems to ride aggressively and to go back and forth in the towns just to make a lot of noise.

    It is interesting to compare the physique of the typical bicycle rider that rides in the marathon with the typical rider of a Harley. Too bad more people don't ride bicycles and stay trim and healthy.
