Those huge Harleys don't look like motorbikes to me. Seems the 2 jokers ruined the evening for many.

They got released anyway, so it is probably going to be no big deal in the end. They might not get their bikes back though.

Safe drivers save lives. Loud vehicles impose themselves on the public

I don't think the issue is noise pollution from Harleys... which maybe should be a regulatory offense, but applying vague "terrorism" laws against anything even slightly offensive. This kind of nonsense you'd expect from one of those paranoid surveillance states like Great Britain or the US or Canada, but not here.

The issue was NOT loud pipes BUT multiple backfires that had people stampeding and injuring others in their wake. Harleys DO backfire when revved high throttle and then let the gas off. The riders did this on purpose as a joke, most likely,and witnesses say they continued even after they saw people running "for their lives".
