Acting preemptively in light of the European Union's recent push towards limiting motorcycle horsepower to 100, Congress has quietly passed a transportation bill that will cap motorcycle engine output at 75 hp. At a press conference today, DOT spokesman Melvin P. Meyers announced that "We can't lag behind Europe's progressive stance towards two-wheeled moderation." The bill not only limits the horsepower of current and future motorcycle models, it retroactively applies to any registered bike on the road, and will take effect as early as January, 2016. "In the interest of public safety," Meyers explains, "law enforcement officials will clamp down on any and all motorcyclists who violate the law."

Motorcycle Chrome to be Banned by January 1, 2010!
"In an unprecedented move that has put the motorcycle industry on alert, the Department of Transportation has passed a bill that intends to outlaw "chrome finishes that cover any engine, frame, or headlight assembly on new motorcycles."*

"Chrome is the silent killer," asserts DOT spokesman Melvin P. Meyers,"

I was going to say if this had been posted on a non-HD forum it would have been followed by "and Harley owners will never notice a difference". But I see they got their Harley insult in at the end of the linked article. Predictable.

Cool beans! Does that mean cops are going to haul dynamometers around to test it? Sounds like a free bhp/ft. lbs torque update to me.
