I guess it is time to have my pipes muffled. I have to admit that at six o'clock in the morning my bike is pretty f**king loud. "Dear Sir/Madam, RE: Breach of Strata Bi-Laws -- Strata Plan 4197 We have received complaints of noise from a motor bike being started up as early as 6 am. The rider then warms up the bike with the noise echoing throughout the complex causing considerable problems for other occupants. Will you please wheel your bike to the street and start it up out there away from the other residents. For your assistance and information we enclose a copy of the Strata By-Laws of which you are in breach as indicated. Please note that there may be a fine imposed for continued breach. We look forward to your cooperation in solving this problem. Thanking you, Chris Stokes Mason & Brophy Strata Management." Strata By-Laws: 1. Noise -- You must not make noise at any time within your lot or on common property that is likely to disturb the peaceful enjoyment of another resident or anyone using common property. 2. Vehicles -- You must not park or stand your vehicle on common property without the written permission of the owners corporation. That permission can be cancelled. Permission does not give you a permanent right over that part of common property. I'll see how quiet I can get the pipes. I kinda reckon loud pipes do let motorists know you are there though - "Loud Pipes Save Lives". Hehe, maybe I should send the cry-babies a bill for whatever work needs to be done to my pipes to get them even quieter than the legal requirement. I'm not going to start pushing a 300+ kilogram bike up to the street, which is fifty metres away at six or six-thirty five times a week. How far up the street should I push the and what about people in other units close to the street? I dunno. I can understand their whining but it still sh*ts me.
