Re: California Exhaust Ban Update; your state may also be included
Obviously you cant compare window tint to a loud exhaust, but in my experience, cops typically don't mess with bikers unless they are being asshats and calling for the attention.
I have ridden with no turn signals, full race exhaust, FE kit with the tag barely viewable, so on and so forth on many various occasions...and have never gotten a ticket for anything. I have never even been pulled over on a motorcycle (keep in mind that I have well over 100k street miles behind me...and counting).
But I am the guy in full gear, not doing stupid shit, short-shifting so the bike isn't revving at 12k all the time, not revving it up at red lights for no reason, not popping wheelies or swerving through traffic like an asshole, etc.
We have all heard the stories about the cops that have a hard-on for sportbikes. Maybe I have been lucky, but in my experience, if you don't do stupid shit to draw unnecessary attention to yourself, they wont mess with you.
