and that's why Ca law allows non-correctable mechanical violation tickets. To make repeat offenders or Adam Henry's pay a fine instead of correcting the problem.
and some LEO's will write "correctable only by the issuing officer" on the back of the ticket if they want to see what and how it was fixed

Probably because they caught on to the fact that people would temporarily correct them to get the ticket to go away, then put them back to how they were.

As so many of these posts indicate, it probably is obnoxious riders rather than obnoxious pipes that are the problem. How smart do you have to be to know that acting stupid when in residential neighborhoods or in normally quiet places harms all motorcyclists, especially Harley riders?

I'd say there are no obnoxious pipes, only obnoxious riders. A little common sense and courtesy goes a long way.

You are both absolutely correct.

I paid $100 for a pair of take off slip ons for my bike. I modified those and left the OEM's factory stock. And then the modifications to the the take offs were just enough to get some sound but not so much as to bother anyone.
