Motorbikes making too much noise in city

A few years ago, motorists would fit big exhaust pipes on vehicles to produce loud noises like the safari rally competition cars. Now there are new motorbikes in town.

Yes, those ones on which the riders sit almost two metres away from the steering handles. What I wonder is where this show-off culture has come from?

What these people haven’t realised or tend to ignore is the fact that these bikes make very annoying noise. Apparently, no-one, including the authority concerned, Nema, seems to mind.
