Noise Level from Exhausts

Here in the UK, the cops/police are clamping down on the noise that motorbikes and cars make. If they stop and check the db levels and it fails, you get a fine and points on your license. Hence the reason I leave my stock exhaust and silencer/can on my bikes nowadays.
It will be interesting to see what the rule is around the world.

Wow! that's very sad to know. Here in California, the law is motorcycle friendly. Very much, if you own a bike you own the road kind of thing. I have rode along a bike cop and he is even more aggressive and noisy ridding his motorcycle than me. Rules don't apply to motorcycles here, that's the whole point of ridding a bike you don't have to be behind a car, you can go wherever you fit. I try not to abuse it. About the noise, that's just to let cars know that you are there, to let know distracted car drivers that you are close to their texting facility.

Arizona and Wyoming have very bike friendly laws, just don't be insanely obnoxious and you'll be fine. Many States are tougher on car and truck exhaust noise.

(partial quote from john 2019 above)

I am sorry but I simply must disagree with the above sentiment. The roads are safer when everyone knows the rules & abide by them. Today it seems like people seem to make it up as they go along. A recipe for disaster if there ever was one.
I will not venture too far into the “Loud pipes save lives” train of thought. I run a stock can because it is quiet. I would like it if the police enforced the noise db limits.

Thumbs down

As they say "It is the few who ruin it for the majority" boy racers and numbnuts comes to mind.
