We RV and tote our bike with us all over Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansas - never had a campground say no motorbikes. We have had them say no ATV's before but that is a whole different story.

How can anyone go to a campground and complain about kids being to loud. Really? Isn't that what family time is. Kids laugh and yell and cry that's life. What would be wrong is if mom gave them a amp and mic that would be well like putting load ass pipes on a motorcycle right. A
Any time you get people living close to gather in a campground there needs to be give and take. If the load pipe guys just coasted out of the campground no one would have bitched.

Unfortunately, the "performance" pipes, IMHO, are meant to announce arrival and/or say look at me. They sound good to the rider. For me, I get a little tired of sucking it up for these people. Solution -- enforce the laws for nuisance and decibel strength. Every state requires inspections. Flunk every bike that exceeds the limit. Then hammer those that put the pipes back on after the inspection.

For those who want the increased performance. Buy a bigger engine. They make bikes now with car engines.

And the ops talking about increasing the "being seen" through the increased sound of the pipes -- that's pure, unadulterated hogwash. Quit trying to obscure the facts (for 99% of the potential accidents).
You should also check your facts. Not every state has inspections. Must do have a law that covers aftermarket exhausts.

We just left an RV Resort in Yuma, Az that had no problem with motorcycles, but would NOT allow the trailer that the bike rode on! The couple that had the bike with them had to unload the bike from the trailer, put the trailer in a storage lot across the street (at $20 per day!) and then drive their motorhome in to the park. And the storage lot was not open on Sunday so that made it problematic for them to leave on Sunday...
