Question: Can an HOA stop or fine a person for using a motorcycle stating that we are creating noise pollution? The motorcycle is my main form of transportation to work. I didn't see anything about use of a motorcycle during certain hours.

Answer: You would have to look in your CC&Rs (Covenants, conditions, & restrictions) for your community. If the issue you are having (using your motorcycle) is listed in the CC&Rs, you can request a variance (an exception to the rule). HOA couldn't enforce something that is not listed in CC&R. If you are still having issues with the HOA regarding this issue, I would advise you to contact an attorney with experience in HOAs and CC&Rs.
