As if! Great find, Cheryl.
What's that? I can't hear you, Cheryl!
that seems like an oxymoron!
Are they kidding? There's no such thing, right? That's like, "Please scream quietly".
ha, like that is going to happen...i imagine they rev it all the more when they see it...smiles.
Haha. I'm sure there is a "quiet" switch on those things. Wait. There is. Turn the key to the "off" position.
Love it! I could have used that years ago when my neighbor used to coast his Harley from inside his garage to the street in front of my house and then start it up. He didn't want to wake up HIS family.
Is there any silent mode on the Harley.
that is SUCH an awesome photo!
i don't blame 'em for making the mufflers as loud as can be so they can avoid being squashed by cars... :)
Hah, that's got to be the most useless sign ever! But hey, at least it's funny. ;)
That's too funny. I guess I should avoid that route...
Hahahahaha! How is this even possible?????
Haha! Are you wishing for the impossible?
It's nice to ask about it but is it possible???
I love the roar of a Harley. (Just not when I'm sleeping.)
Getcher motor runnin', head out on the highwayLooking for adventure In whatever comes our wayI like smoke and lightnin', heavy metal thunderRacin' in the wind and the feelin' that I'm underBorn to be wildBorn to be wild
Crank it UP PK!
Or posted near the home of a curmudgeon.
That'd be my guess too. Not that I'd do anything like that. Oh no, not me.
Reforming Geek says it's the OFF position for the key. :)
Maybe not on a Harley but I'm sure it's possible on ::ahem:: lesser ::ahem:: bikes.
You may be onto something with that.
It may be impossible to do but if it brings a smile or laugh to passers by, it could be one of the most useful signs in town.
With your shiny new car, it's a route I'd suggest you avoid even without the sign. One of my favorite back roads.
Who said rules have to be possible? Besides, there's always coasting, right?
Someone is. It's not near my house. Hmmm. Maybe I need to get one. We have tons of bikers on our road. Crazy loud in the summer months.
There's always neutral and a slow coast to get past that house. Personally, I'd gun it to pass by more quickly.
How lovely for you. GAH!
That sign is just for ONE HOUSE? I thought it was for the neighborhood. So it's not like, the law or anything.
Not that I could tell. It's on a well-traveled back road on a utility pole just beyond a driveway. The house isn't far from a 4-way stop. My guess is it gets pretty noisy & they're just doing their best to raise awareness.
I love 'em except on the highway. Saturday morning I was at the end of our street and a parade of Harleys went driving by. 'Course I had my camera so I shot 'em. Bad angle but I got some decent shots that I could crop. They were riding for Breast Cancer Awareness and fundraising. Lots of the bikes were wearing bras & almost everyone wore a bit of pink/red.
If the biker takes the bike out gear and coasts, I'm fairly certain it would be very quiet.
Needed to save this one for the B.S. prompt... Where is that? I'm calling my bike brothers.
really, how is that even possible. hahahah! maybe shutting off the motor and walking it down the road.
Love that sign! It's just like "stay off the grass" and omg how good does grass feel under bare feet ... right???
Nah, I've got plenty of other stuff for bullshit.
Exactly! Or put the bike in neutral and coast around the bend.
That's a great analogy. I've never seen a biker when I've traveled near this house. I wonder if it creates that same sense of wanting to push the limits.
How the HECK do you ride QUIETLY!!!!!!! LOLOL!
Ride free or die!Which is a dumb expression, really, because Harleys are really expensive. People are idiots, I swear.
I'll be sure to leave my harley behind if I happen by...;)
Put the bike in neutral and coast? :)
It's a fine expression and one I've seen bikers use to justify not wearing a helmet. Yes, I live in a state where the idjits have very loud voices & say the most inane things in pursuit of so-called freedom and rampant stupidity.
Oh please don't. The visual of you on a Harley is so appealing I'd love to see it person.
wont be a problem for me
I wasn't going to use that turn of phrase but that's what my dad would have called 'em.
I am so NOT politically correct.
Pish-tosh. Not a worry. I'm so politically correct I already more-than-make-up for the people in my life who aren't. I'll add you to the list. It's a burden, I tell ya, but one I'm happy to carry.
you're good like that!
Just about the best there is when it comes to this shit.
And I let you do all of the political speak FOR ME on Facebook too! Your "rants" are THE BEST!
Now there's an oxymoron if I ever saw one.
