Stokin' the neighbors!

So our neighbor from across the street came over last night, flashlight in hand:
Neighbor: Alright you need to be more considerate of our neighbors. 
-Yeah Hi, my name is Charlie. 
Neighbor: You need to be more considerate. (guess he wasn't interested in introductions/ pleasantries) Ok? This is, you can't... alright?
-Alright that's fine sorry for being so noisy. Joey, it looks like we're done for the night.
Neighbor: And 3am. Saturday. *shakes head* No.
-Uh, yeah okay boss. Goodnight.

Now... I like to think that I'm being fairly considerate, considering that I have the ability to make a LOT more noise than I do. No air tool usage late at night, I'm not running motorcycles at all hours (because none of them run), or blasting music. In fact we were just idling Joey's bike in the garage (sometime before 11pm) when he came over.
Also, I have no idea what he's talking about when he said, "3am Saturday. No." Saturday is probably the one day of the week I'm actually NOT up late working on bikes since I have ALL DAY to do that.

Hopefully this won't be a reoccurring theme.

I couldn't help but chuckle a little bit when Joey left in his super loud, exhaust-less Bronco, followed shortly by the arrival of another neighbors even louder Jeep Wrangler.

The point of this story was something I don't remember. Anyway, Joey's K3 carbs are almost sync'd. Gonna get that done tonight and he should be on his way with a ride-able motorcycle!!!

And just in case anyone was wondering:

Such levels shall be measured at the property boundary of the sound source or at any point within any other property affected by the noise. When a noise source can be identified and its noise measured in more than one zoning district classification, the limits of the most restrictive classification shall apply.
