He obviously has everyone's best interests at heart, and
has probably issued more warnings than tickets for what he considers loud motorcycle exhaust to be. Think of how much of his personal time he surely has spent fine tuning his hearing to the point that he can discern whether, or not, the decibel level of said exhaust falls within or without cited Houston city ordinance conditions. Quite frankly, I'm very impressed...he seems to be an amazing
person! You know? I can't rememer the last time I was able to thoroughly enjoy the peace and serenity of Hwy 6 or Westheimer, and I think we should all let him know that, although his efforts may seem futile and maybe even a bit narcissistic to some, I applaud his "rage against the machine" approach to public safety, and may I add, any references to Brown Shirts should be summarily disputed
and the posts removed.

I'd like to share some personal testimony with you all. My normal route to work is via Westpark Tollway-1093-Hwy 6-Memorial. Just the other day I was driving to work and enjoying my morning coffee (home brew, but its not bad!), catching up on a few text messages, and doing my best to get my brand new bluetooth earpiece to join with my phone. Well, it wasn't quite as easy to do as the one that,
unfortunately, fell out of my ear the day before while I was leaning out of my window to threaten that dude with the loud music playing with his life if he refused to turn that Bobby Pulido down so I could finish my freakin' conversation!!...sorry had to digress for a moment. Anyway, so naturally, I had break out the darn manual and try to read it between stop lights, while replying to
my girlfriend's text message about the neighbors cat, and arguing with the cable company who had just called to request a time change for a repair appointment I'd made. All of a sudden, I mean out of nowhere, I was startled by an excruciatingly loud and distracting noise (nice '08 black pearl Streetglide!!!) coming up from behind me on the right, so much so, that I jumped and practically
bumped my head on the ceiling of my truck, which resulted in me spilling coffee all over my brand new blue tooth's manual, (what a mess!) dropping my phone on the floorboard with the cable tv company agent still on the line squawking about how she can't seem to ever get customers to cooperate, incompetent technicians, blah, blah, blah, and a text message prematurely sent to my girlfriend which resulted in a not so pleasant phone conversation at the next traffic light! (words to the wise? Be careful when texting with females about cats...sometimes the context of those conversations can be misconstrued under certain circumstances, if you get my meaning???) It was at that very moment, I had an epiphany. What if we had 10 men like Mr. Holtsclaw(sp?)? ...a hundred? ...a thousand?? I may be a dreamer, but if His dedication to making the streets of Houston more quiet and peaceful can catch fire and burn through rank and file motorcycle enthusiasts, everywhere, it would be one less thing to distract the courteous, competent drivers that we all know Houstonians to be. I mean don't they already have enough distractions to deal with?

Thanks, again, to Mr. Holtsclaw(sp?) and I would like challenge everyone to send this selfless, dedicated individual (may I offer "Martyr for a quieter Houston"?) a personal "thank you" for doing his part to ensure motorcyclists, everywhere, will take pause before making a decision to purchase non-OEM exhaust for their motorcycles, thereby, returing peace and quiet to the streets of Houston.

Thank you,

Chris Lee
Sounds to me the exhaust woke you up and made you pay attention to the road instead of your coffe, text messages, phone conversations (which the bluetooth does not make talking on the phone safer, you are still distracted, had you not been distracted, you would have seen the bike coming and wouldn't have been startled) I don't know this officer, and do not want to, but I find it funny you logged in just to post this one. Welcome to the forum. I smell bacon.

Peace and serenity in Houston????? Weird, if you want peace and serenity look somewhere besides Houston.>> Doubt you'll ever find it If you want to find peace and serenity get on a motorcycle and hit the back roads.
