I am sick of Harley noise criminals who spend 5 minutes warming up their bikes when they know everyone in the hotel will be woken up by it. I just tried to reason with one of these sonic terrorists and all the useless worm would say is "it's not my problem." What is wrong with these greasy sociopaths? Also,when they pull into the hotel lot after hitting the local bars, anyone who is asleep will get shocked awake. Just crummy, sleazy, noisy people. Are there parts of Portland especially thick with these buzzing flies? I'm moving here for a job and hope most neighborhoods don't suffer that scourge.

You have to understand the biker mentality. The bike is an extension of theirless than normal manhood. The loud pipes are an attempt by people with low self esteem to say "Look at me,look at me, DAMMIT,somebody look at me".It's the same behavior held over from childhood. A single wandering dog is no problem but when they pack up,they all try to see who can be the most obnoxious and bark the loudest. Understand?

Sorry. Portland is full of tattooed, heroin-using Harley riders on ever corner. There are also plenty of semi trucks idling everywhere. Stay away.

But most of the semi drivers aren't rude and obnoxious. Can't say that about the biker boys and the weekend wannabes seeking attention.

You think I should wear those earplugs all day and night just to coddle your selfish criminal attitude? Mighty convenient for YOU, but I like to be aware of my surroundings and have full use of my ears. Even if I knew the exact time a Harley thug would thunder by, I wouldn't oblige that arrogant earplugs suggestion. You idiots don't own the airspace. Look up "The Commons" as a general concept.

Deliberate noise-makers are sociopaths, be it loud pipes, subwoofers, yelling, or any preventable racket that disrupts civilized life.

There are always bad eggs in every community whether it be Harley riders or not. Consideration is everyone's responsibility. Sounds like you were really brave trying to talk some sence into that scary heroin doing harley riding sociopath. You're lucky to be alive or maybe he just wasn't interested to hear how bad your vagina was hurting.

It's our choice to have loud pipes. It's your choice not to oblige us and wear ear plugs. We don't care. Grow a thicker skin. Or better yet wipe the sand out of your vagina.

Stop your sniveling. I mean holy shit! Go to a different hotel, close your window, invest in portable sound dampening equipment. Or just go home.

Surely you haven't suckered into that idiotic crap about "loud pipes save lives". Pipes face BACKWARDS not forwards. Cars are almost soundproof today and a rear facing pipe has no way in hell of projecting sound forward into a well insulated car with the windows closed,air and music on. NO WAY !!!! The only thing positive about the "loud pipes" b.s. is the smart people who make money off the suckers selling the silly little stickers to put on their helment.

There is general courtesy that derives from common sense. I have a dual-sport motorcycle (designed for street or dirt riding) and it HAS TO pass the 94 decibel rule (les noise than a lawnmower). Why Harley's aren't regulated for noise pollution is beyond me. Most areas have city ordinance of no noise after 9 or 10 pm. If ot's an ongoing problem, police are obligated to respond. You can also record it as evidence and make note of the time. Sorry for those few who lack a little respect. I believe there's a time and a place for things ...if it's being a public nuisance, then it should be addressed
