And this was such a nice, friendly thread a minute ago...

Checker should have the right to butt heads with anybody he pleases out there... John Law included. A man of principle, saying what he believes. Still America, right?
On the other hand, he shouldn't badmouth everyone on the forum simply because someone disagrees with him.

No biggie... seems the issue settled itself.

Remember, people... "Be excellent to each other!"

And I still say: loud pipes save lives! :lol8

I got a ticket because of loud noise years ago! I had taken a metal rod and shoved it up the pipes to get everything and anything that obstructing flames from coming out of the exhaust. Had the carbs re-jet'd to allow the extra wind-tunnel...Got a ticket..paid it and moved on. I never changed the exhaust..kept riding and never got another ticket.

It was just my time that day!

some people choose to learn when pointed in the correct direction. Some choose to move on along. Most of us have loud pipes. Was never the issue. There are many organizations that a person can join to help fight for our rights to have loud pipes. BUT if you can't understand there are laws against it and even though the original topic was a bummer it was a cold hard fact as to what happened. Mr checker took it personal and needed to prove some point. An incorrect point and took a jab. Other's jabbed back. Sad but if anyone takes an internet convo and get their panties in a wad none of us are gonna mind if they leave. Sorry to see him go looked like he had a nice sporty but doubt I or many other will lose sleep.

Around '75 or '76 I had a '69 Plymouth GTX that I had glas-pack mufflers installed on with the exhausts routed out behind the doors. Was traveling from Baytown to Texas City one day and got pulled over by a cop for excessive noise and ticketed for it. Just another ticket for me at the time.
I still run loud muffs on my bike and like most around here agree just don't be a dick about it and generally you won't have any trouble.
Bottom line, Texas has had excessive noise laws for a loooong time and they enforce them when they want to.

It is the same over here in Queensland Australia. Just have to go with the flow and not make too much noise.

It don't matter what you drive, if johnny law wants to F with you he will. A guy i know got a ticket in his Peterbilt for exessive noise, he has straight pipes on it, he just used his jake brake in front of the wrong cop. Said he's been drivin 30 years and never got a ticket.

There's not a law regulating the loudness on pipes in Texas. The guy is an idiot.
Just following your lead. :thumb

My bike is loud as hell....I'd never take it to a test like that though. I've got the stock exhaust in the garage if I ever need to pass something.

Don't be a douchebag with your pipes and you'll get F'd with less. Being an attention whore, will get you some unwanted attention.

he didnt get louder pipes to be an attention whore, he got them and the bike runs better and he does believe that loud pipes are safer on the road. and actually they really arent that loud compared to a lot of bikes i see on the road. good thing he saved his stock pipes.

i was posting this because i have seen a few people on the internet saying there were no laws regarding muffler/noise on motorcycles in texas and a few other states. im guessing a lot of people believed them.

Loud pipes don't mean you're an attention whore, revving them all of the time does, there's no need to be sitting at a stop light revving every 10 seconds, unless you're engine runs crappy.
