Your reply is way off target, totally out of it. There's several other equally clueless responses on this thread. The OP wasn't about noisy pipes, it was about arbitrary enforcement. Several superbike riders jumped all over the OP with the clueless retort that Harley riders deserve what they get. The case wasn't about noisy pipes, it was about cops making up the rules as they go along. They're coming after you now for DOT labels, footpegs, daytime running lights, lack of snow tires in winter, not parking parallel to the curb, noisy air filters, and on and on. Get a clue! If you don't understand what the problem is, and stick together, you're going to get dinged with all the other stupid made-up shit from the traffic cops.This issue was about noise complaints due to the idiotic way people with loud pipes ride them in cities. The *people* are the ones who complained and the government listened. That is how a democracy is supposed to work. Generally speaking the only people who want loud pipes legal are those who use and abuse them.
