The California State Senate is considering SB 435 that aims to increase enforcement of current anti-tampering and noise-level statutes for motorcycles. If you are a California resident, download and share the flier in your community:

Thankyou for posting the SB-435 and all the e-mail addresses of who to contact. I have passed this URL to all I know and asked them to do the same. It is time to shut down all the V-Twin repsonsible for all the noise. It's either make them legal and quite or get them off the road forever. I hope the fines starts at $1000 on the first offense, $1000 plus one point on their DL for the second offense and $1000, one point and empound the bike, one more point on the DL on the thrid offense. Please don't make the government look like a fool by emposing a $20 fine as it is for talking on a cell phone. The only way to cure these idiots is to hit them where it hurts

This bill is an important victory. Even though the police officer can not stop for an illegal muffler just for that reason, there are lots of other reasons motorcyclists get stopped for anyways, like speeding, red lights, lane changes and other stuff. And, when a motorcyclist does get stopped, now there is a law that they can also get sited for their illegal modified muffler.

And, in addition to that, if the muffler is illegal, it has to be changed and corrected and inspected by California Highway Patrol or another police department.

So, this is good news that the law passed. And, hopefully amendments will come later to strengthen this law. And, it will be a model for other states. It is a VICTORY!!!

so you would rather impose a harsher fine on a motorcycle that will be in your space for maybe 15 seconds as it passes by than those idiots who insist on talking on cell phones while driving which is a much greater threat to your safety?

talk about messed up priorities.

I would like to impound illegal motorcycles, like some police departments do for BOOM car stereo systems. K-pot has no clue, it is not like there is a single motorcyclist with illegal mufflers. In our case it can easily be over 100 each weekend day blasting by with illegal mufflers heard over any activity in our home - no other vehicle can be heard including street legal motorcycles. All neighbors are sick and tired of the continuous noise from these a-hole goons that give all motorcyclists a bad name. Probably K-pot will start on the tired disproven rant on loud mufflers being safe (the reality is that this is a safety hazard to all). If motorcyclists cannot accept the risks of their activity and obey the laws then they should drive a car, no one forces them to ride a motorcycle.
