We don't care. Hate Away. I am not out there to "impress" you nor will I housebreak my 'sickle Because of You. Harleys make Sound; Not Noise.
Let those who Ride; Decide.
EDIT: I am Cool in my own neighborhood. I don't open her up until I am on 22nd st. I grow Annoyed at this Ninja rider who revs out right next to kids playing, they could run out in street to catch a ball at anytime. The four of us Harley riders don't do this. Of course; we are all over 60; the Ninja rider is an 18 yo kid.
Present WA state law:
"No person shall modify the exhaust system of a motorcycle in a manner which will amplify or increase the noise emitted by the engine of such vehicle above that emitted by the muffler originally installed on the vehicle, and it shall be unlawful for any person to operate a motorcycle not equipped as required by this section, or which has been amplified as prohibited by this section.
[ 1977 ex.s. c 355 § 52.]"
No one may legally modify any motorcycle's exhaust to produce higher dB sound from stock, as marked on stock pipes, by Federal law. Just like, by Fed law, cannot modify/remove any factory smog or safety device from a cage.
