Every night, like clockwork, I hear the absurdly loud engines of the phantom (menace) motorbike riders who travel like packs of wolves up and down the Gulf Road. Well, nothing too odd about people ‘night riding’ their bikes, so what’s the problem I hear you ask?
Well their choice of timing is very odd for a start. I usually head to sleep at about 1am, but I often hear these guys driving up and down the road well into the early morning. It’s not uncommon for me to wake up at 4 or 5am and still hear these ‘phantom menaces’ riding their bikes. I am a relatively light/medium sleeper and often get woken up by the sound of my glass shuddering like an earthquake has just hit.
Well, perhaps someone could help answer questions pertaining to this odd phenomenon:
- Who are they? Adults, Kids, Learner’s?
- Do they work? Go to School? If yes, how do they wake up!? Or don’t they sleep?
- Is it the same ‘gang’ who drives up and down the road for hours on end, or are there multiple packs?
- Why are the mufflers so loud? I know a Harley is supposed to have a insanely loud exhaust – but they are clearly NOT riding on Harley’s – so why do they blurt out all that noise!?
I feel bad for those poor folks and families who are really light sleepers. I’m sure there are quite a few disgruntled residents who would love to find out where these bikers live, park a nice shiny new Harley outside their bedroom window – and rev like there is no tomorrow, naturally whilst munching on their favourite dunkin’ donut……..
