Noise Free America: A Coalition to Promote Quiet is a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting noise, especially from boom cars, car alarms, leaf blowers, barking dogs, and motorcycles.

Motorcycle Noise

Noise Free America: A Coalition to Promote Quiet has written a book on illegal motorcycle noise. It is a visual guide to illegal motorcycle equipment, intended to make it easier for law enforcement officials to identify illegal equipment and thus issue more citations.  Please order the book, read the book, and recommend it to your local law enforcement agencies.
