Until now, it’s been relatively difficult for municipalities and other government entities to enforce noise standards for vehicles. Usually such a citation comes about from a traffic stop for some other offense or violation, though we have heard of police checkpoints for non-DOT approved modifications. This got Mark Nesdoly thinking, after a motorcycle woke up his daughter at his Edmonton, Canada home. If cameras can catch speeders and red-light runners, then why can’t the same be true for noise violators? And the Noise Snare was born.
What’s going to be mounted on these protruding brackets? So far the 2010 MotoCzysz E1pc has been lapping the Isle of Man without its full fairing on the motorcycle. If history teaches us anything, the presumption, of course, should be that MotoCzysz has something still up its sleeve before the team takes to the Mountain Course tomorrow for the TT Zero event. Last year it was batteries in the tail-section, this year it would seem to be streamlining the E1pc. While Michael Czysz has derided the use of a dustbin style fairings in road racing, he has acknowledged that a course like the Isle of Man creates an opportunity for a race team to find some benefits in the design. As such, Czysz wrote three months ago that he would have a dustbin fairing at the ready, should someone else show up with one as well…and that’s exactly what’s happened.
