Well, our new noise bylaw has gotten to me. First let me say this: I don't ride early in the morning or late at night: I'm not rolling in at 3 am cranking on my throttle or anything. I would say i generally ride between 10am and 9pm out of courtesy to my neighbors. And my bike is only a few dB over, but I'm still getting hassled (I think one of my douchy neighbors has called in complaints on me due to an unrelated property issue). I have yet to see a cop perform the test properly, and I videotaped them (incorrectly) attempting the test both times, which resulted in getting a warning both times, rather than a ticket. However... its not worth the hassle of getting pulled over for 40 minutes at a time, or the slight panic I feel every time I ride by a cop. So I'm having a stock exhaust ceramic coated black and going back. Like the worst kind of fart, my motorcycle will now be silent but deadly. So screw you Mr. The Man, it looks like you've won this round...
