I picked this up from another forum I use...

A day before re-registering the '99 Drifter 1500, I learnt that there is a $750 defect fine for non-original exhaust - this is regardless of Db. $1500 for second offence and $3000 and confiscation of m/c for a third offence. The m/c shops won't do a roadworthy if you have a non original exhaust - even though they have no sound testing equipment, and a noise test is not part of the requirement - the RTA went around and put the wind up all of them.

I went to the car garage that does the family cars, and got it done there. As I don't ride in a (large) outlaw group, I am not likely to be pulled over on the Freeway. However, Police cars have photo recognition and noise detection running on their computers. The cops don't even know that you have been detected - the car computer just sends it to the big computer, and you get a notice in the mail - hands free.

Wonderful to be living in a free country , isn't it !!!

Are they still calling it England, or has it been renamed Oceania yet?

theres still a bit of bullshit to deal with here in the ol' US but at least i can carry my guns on me, and i can pretty much run my bike however i want as long as im not impersonating a police officer.

Wow! Just glad I moved to the US right before college. I probably wouldn't be even riding had I still lived over there.

Don't think you are safe is the USA either!

You would probably be surprised at how many states here in the US make exhaust modifications illegal. In Florida, any modification to the exhaust which increases the original db levels, is illegal. Here... check your state..

State-by-state motorcycle laws

Oh my God..Bloody Brits going to America, sleeping with your women, taking your jobs..no wonder the country is in such a bad way.. I understand that even some of your top polititians are suspected of not being born in the USA. those jobs could have gone to some good old boys from Tucson..

again!
please tell me theres a video of this happening.
Never seen a video of this but have read about it. Apparently Morgan said something about Clarkson's wife (not good) in public and Clarkson punched Morgan in the mouth I guess.

Supposedly they have had words before. Jeremy just strikes me as someone who you wouldn't want to **** with.

Unwritten procedure here is that cops don't bother loud m/c exhausts. They go by the rule that "loud pipes save lives".

Now, on the other hand don't be rude to them, don't do stupid sh*t, because they can always fall back on the law and take your bike, they have every right to do that. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Behave and you'll have no worries around here.

He doesn't do anything for me, he is on record as saying he doesn't like motorcycles or the folks that ride them..

I don't dislike him, but I would rather see someone do the same job with motorcycles..

Both of our countries have some very interesting roads, it would be good to see some new and old bikes riding around them and some other parts of the world..

Oh I know he HATES motorcycles, that was what made watching them ride scooters in Vietnam so funny. IMO Richard Hammond would be the one to do a Top Gear Motorcycle edition.

I like watching Top Gear, I love British humor.
