How appropriate for you, Codders. Perhaps you could adopt him as your mentor? You both seem to share so much. By the way? What engine did you buy for you, soon to be arriving, RIB ? Was it one of the environmentally friendly four strokes, or one of those nasty, polluting, noisy two strokes?

4 strokes dont make that noise and a lot of greenlaners would agree that 2 strokers are a bit obtrusive
But most of the bikes I come across ARE 2 strokes - and they tend to be in big groups!!!

I can truthfully say I have NEVER heard a big 2 stroke outboard sound anything like a bike or a chainsaw!!!

ANY sort of big group will cause problems - 2 or 3 people walking along a narrow path are soon past and forgotten - a bloody coachload is a different matter!!!

I NEVER stick to the paths when I wander around the mountains - and as a result there is NO damage anywhere as a result - it is the constant passage of feet that causes the problem.

Have you noticed the paths sheep make? Why do people have to behave the same???

Baaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrr Baaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrr

Seriously though - remember I am NOT in favour of BANNING things - just think people should keep a low profile to avoid giving others the excuse!!!

to be totally honest a group of 30 2strokes blatting along would be a bit of a pain in the ass from a noise perspective. especially if full blown xers just about road legal

my road bike makes a lot of noise but i prefer my offroad bike to be quiet as a mouse

but i am one of the old gits on a fourstroke as my friends seem to be as well so we are the nice quiet bunch that are nice and friendly and help old ladies across the road
