exhaust....check your local laws before you buy

I'd first check the law in your state/city and make sure that glass packs etc are street legal. Here in South Dakota the only requirement is to have a complete exhaust system, no mention of how loud it can or can not be. But Aberdeen does have a city ordance for "Exhibition Driving" and "excessive noise from an exhuast system" is enough to get a ticket for exhibition driving. As far as getting its officer discretion. Most motorcycles are twice as loud as a car with glasspacks and rarely do they get stopped. If people are out using the city streets as dragstrips then loud exahust is one more thing that they can be nailed with. I hardly ever pull people over for muffler violations.
