LETTER: Taking the long view of the motorcycle noise debate

Reading about all this noise of noisy bikes in the print media disturbs me because I think the petitioners are misguided.

Reading about all this noise of noisy bikes in the print media disturbs me because I think the petitioners are misguided. I too enjoy the peace and quiet and while canoeing on a tranquil lake last summer in a heightened state of awareness, I was disturbed by a Honda Gold Wing motorcycle that went by on the highway. Although those motorcycles are considered quiet, I still found the barely audible noise wafting across the water brought me out of my trance-like state.

I decided to express my views on websites about this minority group but I find the sites dealing with motorcycles are annoying because those people can’t spell. I found that websites composed of people that are enlightened and all that sort of stuff bother me as well because they are way too nice and always consider themselves right.

As the world is full of jerks I figure this is just one minority group composed of smart people picking on another minority group because they can’t defend themselves properly. This is discrimination and needs to stop!

If people really want a mission and to make a difference in this world they should consider the next step of imposing our democracy on North Korea just as we are doing in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria.

Or they can realize the futility of it all because we are doomed. In three billion years our galaxy will collide with the Andromeda galaxy and the gravitational pull will destroy the planets.

Patrick Mackle, Kaslo
