Myrtle Beach has always been against motorcycles. They just want the $$ during bike week. I went there twice a year since the mid-80s but last fall was my last visit. If you are looking for beaches go south lot nicer beaches and friendlier campgrounds.

The problem with motorcycles is the noise. They are much louder than diesel engines and make us angry. Put a muffler on the damned thing and then you will be welcome.
Until they they make less noise, I will campaign to keep them out of campgrounds and off the roads.

There are city ordinances about not allowing exhaust brakes because of their noise, which make much less noise than a motorcycle, but all seem to allow motorcycles to disturb as they please.

Wil01, it is engine brakes NOT exhaust brakes that are banned in a few towns. Also not all motorcycles are noisy. I have had a BMW and now ride a Kawasaki which are as quiet as most cars. It is mostly Harleys that cause the reaction you have as owners put on aftermarket exhausts that make them so loud. I wish the police would enforce the db levels so all motorcyclists are not seen as objectionable. I am with you on that.

Most pipes are not that loud unless the rider really wants them to be, I have about the biggest harley you can get with pipes and a hop up and at low speed it is real tame. But any site not allowing bikes will loose business in the long run but there choice.

I doubt campgrounds that don't allow bikes actually loose any business. What they loose in obnoxiously loud traffic they gain in guests that enjoy the quite. Since the bulk of RV owners don't ride, I think it's safe to say that their business actually goes up. Except during events like Sturgis, Daytona, and Laconia. But that's still only 1 of 52 weeks a year.

Guys put loud pipes on their bike for one reason only and that is not to see how quietly they can idle down the road. Rarely will you see one slowly pull away from a stop light if their riding with their friends. Most often it becomes a competition to see who cal get full throttle into 3rd or 4th before they let off the gas for the next stop. It's all about look at me, I'm riding a Harley. If you're not sure look at my tee shirt, my Jacket, my gloves, my wallet, my Do rag, my boots, they all have the Harley Davidson logo

Really? You're willing to condemn all riders for the actions of a few? For one thing, all road worthy bikes already have mufflers, which meet federal standards just like all motor vehicles, so let's not make such a broad statement eh? It's true there are bikers who put after-market pipes that are too loud, too obnoxious, and even annoy other bikers as much as they annoy you.

But making such a broad statement of condemnation is no more valid then saying that all RV drivers are morons because a minority drive like a turtle on the turnpike.

Campgrounds can do what they want, that's there business, and even as a avid biker I wouldn't begrudge them that right. I'll just move down the highway to some place else.

Please, give it a break and stop painting everyone with such a broad brush.

x 2 my guess is he is one of the haters that try to hurt motorcyclist by cutting them off and pulling out in front of them The very best people I know ride and are very safe and abide by all rules. They contribute and take care of children in hospitals collect toys for poor children visit hospitals and the list goes on. wil01 i'm sure does nothing for anyone and probably is a menace to all bikers.

It is not just bikers being sensitive to cager's cutting us off. I see cager's trying to keep bikes from changing lanes tailgating very aggressive driving. It's not the pipes cause this bike is stock.

I am personally happy to be seeing the snowbirds and their terrible ability to drive leaving thie state. I ride almost daily and the the older crowd just act as they either don't know how to drive, or don't care if they kill you or not. Seems lots of motor homes and cars are also not being built with turn signals either.
I ride a Harley that is fairly quiet, but I'd rather deal with a slightly loud motorbike that a blind blue hair.

Please let me publicly say I didnt mean this to turn ugly. And by know means do I have any reason to believe he, or others with that view, are haters per se. Uneducated about bikers perhaps, ignorant of the mandated safety training, and maybe there are medical issues that effect his hearing that makes it uncomfortable for him personally. my point is simply don't judge an entire group by the actions of a few.

Just as much a point as saying let us all not assume someone is a vile, ignorant hater, just because he had the courage to speak his own view.

If any took my comment in another way. . .that falls under "oops"

If it's too loud your too old sometimes can be a true statement. Some people as they get older forget the exuberance of youth and become less tolerant of so many things.

I don't want guys running straight pipes running up and down for hours at a time, but I'm pretty tolerant of noise. Kids playing, dogs barking, some noise is to be expected. Same for bikes and Hot Rods. It's all about being respectful of others rights to peace and quiet vs. a bike riding into camp.

Now if you want to run a cheap Harbor Freight generator next to me night and day I will start to become a little testy.
