Question: I added a 50 watt siren in the middle of my bike. When i hold the microphone to talk through ( its a PA system also ) i keep getting a ton of feedback. My siren on the bike is pointing forward, and the mic isnt facing its direction. I dont know how to get rid of the annoying feedback. The cop horn and siren sounds work fine, its just talking through it will make it go crazy.

Now that Jeffro has the legal side covered pretty well , here's the answer. Make sure the PA mic is behind the speaker, since this is in the middle of the bike, it sound likes you're getting feed back because the mic is picking up the sound from the speaker. Moving the speaker forward, or using the PA dismounted behind the bike should solve this problem. Good luck and hope this helps.

When you say 'sportbike', there are sportbikes and then there are sportbikies. 8^) The real sportbikes are deadly serious single-purpose machines, almost like racing bikes for the street. They are not good for all-around riding. They have small, hard seats (because you get some road feedback through your butt). They have very quick steering, almost 'twitchy'. The engines are high-performance, with a narrow powerband, designed to be kept near the redline all the time. And they have an extreme riding position, leaning way forward, so after 20 min. your back and wrists hurt. Most 600cc bikes are in this category because 600cc is a standard racing category. We're talking here about Honda CBR, Suzuki GSX-R, Kawasaki ZX and Yamaha R6. Then there is the other 'sportbike', which is really a 'sporty' bike, a standard with sportbike styling. Suzuki SV 650 is a good example. It's fast enough, good-handling enough to be a lot of fun, but it's really a standard. Comfortable seat, wider powerband, more upright riding position. You can have fun with it but you can also take it on a day-long trip and not need a chiropractor at the end of the day. If you ride a cruiser you already know how the controls work. You will need to get used to the riding position. That's not really going to be that hard. I am a touring bike person, but I occasionally ride a cruiser and I don't mind it at all. I can't get used to the position, sitting down low with my feet out in front of me, but I don't feel like the bike is harder to control. A sportbike or standard might seem higher to you, more 'tippy', less stable, at first. Of course that's the whole idea, trading some stability for the ability to throw the bike into corners. You should have no trouble getting used to in in a few rides, just take it easy at first. All the Japanese makers are very good. A Kawasaki Ninja is a good bike. Suzuki SV650 has a very cool 90 degree v-twin engine with counterbalancer. Honda 599 aka Hornet aka CB600 (same engine as the CBR but wider powerband, better seat, etc). And Yamaha makes one too but I can't remember the designation. See what's available on Craigslist. You ought to be able to get a nice used bike for $3k.

The biggest adjustment is the riding position - longer road trips on a sportbike are a real test. Forearms and shoulders get a workout. My personal preference in a 600 to 650 is and always will be a Suzuki SV650.

Its illegal to posses law enforcement equipment such as lights and sirens for vehicles that travel on any public highway unless authorized by the proper authority such the police chief/fire chief. A bicycle must adhere to the laws as well and its operator can be cited for any violation, such as failure to stop at place required, i.e. stop sign. Suggestion would be to take it off, possession of such items is usually a class 2 misdemeanor.

Yeah, that is unlawful. Putting sirens or lighting to your motorcycle isn't noticeable as simply tricking out your trip however as impersonating the Police. In the states as I can suppose within the UK it is a prison. Save your self the challenge.

If I were you, I would drop the incident, but plan some strategy to deal with this bully. Take pictures of the rocks and get a copy of the permission from the office to put in a file. The permission will be dated and the pictures should show that it is evident the rocks have been there for some time. Obviously you have had trouble with this person before, and it will only escalate if you try to file charges against him without having some solid evidence. Trying to have him arrested for lying to the police is frivious, and that's not what you're ultimately after. This is sort of like a schoolyard fight, so you be the mature one and just ignore him about the knee scrape. That will get him stirred up more than if you got into a fight with him. That is what he wants, and if you refuse to react but just stay calm, then it will be obvious to the police and the office that he is the instigator. Buy an inexpensive recorder, and if he comes over and starts threatening you, record him yelling at you. Don't argue back at him, just record what he says. You can let him see you doing it. Record him every time he yells at you. I can guarantee you he will be fit to be tied. If he sends you text messages, don't respond. Just make copies of all the messages he sends you. Have the office write down every time he complains about you. Get the dates and times of everything. Let him do this for about three or for months, and then take him to small claims court for harassment. You can sue him for up to $5,000. You can also get a long-term injunction against him. Put signs up on your grass that say "No Parking". Take pictures of those as well. Collect all of the paper evidence you can, and take it to court. You act dignified and mature, and let him be the raving fool. You can bet he's a long-time troublemaker, and everywhere he's lived, I'm sure the neighbors have been glad to get rid of him. Maybe your strategy will encourage him to move again. Good luck.
