Will motorcycle noise laws affect sales?

New laws cracking down on motorcycle noise are giving bikers headaches. Laws limiting motorcycle noise are being passed from New York City to Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

The problem is the laws are not the same all over. Some laws limit the range a motorcycle can be heard, others punish bikers who rev their engines in certain areas.

SunHerald.com reports that motorcycle industry insiders worried that inconsistent laws are confusing bikers and could hurt bike sales.
