I think in an open enviroment i.e. mountain road,
and not a crowded shopping street,
a noise citation would more likely be a secondary violation
only after being stopped for a primary one ~ like speeding
at least i hope so
Our local riding group had a loud pipe contest not to long ago. I was the poor sap that got to run the meter. Most Harley's with after market pipes are running 115-125. The winner was 126 DB. A bud has his GSXR 1000 with a short pipe was 125.
Most guys keep it to a dull roar in town.
