Well done Police, there are too many of these noisy bikes around and their riders seem to get pleasure from shattering the peace whenever they can. How about going further and stopping the cars with loud exhausts too - surely they are illegal.

I've never understood the logic of boy racers adding odd exhausts.

Probably a waste of time if it were trying to catch the "loud bikes" - which were probably not carrying number plates or have any registered owners, so no one can be traced that way unless they are stopped in person.

The police need to monitor motorcycles ridden down Broadstone Way, Broadstone too. I hear them racing the roundabout, going rapidly through the gear s, holding onto each gear until it screams!
Broadstone Way is seen as a night time race track for the noisy and irresponsible bikers (thankfully a minority group)

The police have seized two motor cycles that have been making a noise. It's nice to see the police have emerged after spending the summer hiding from the travelers .
