Instead you start being a d##k to the cop, even if he is in the wrong, you get blasted with 2 tickets and a day in court.
Learn a lesson and always treat cops with respect even if they are totally wrong. Unless it becomes a point where a cop is inapprorpiate with you or hassling you above and beyond what is reasonable.
On the cop's side however, the AA is a LOUD exhaust and there is not set decibal level that makes it illegal-but rather its the cops discretion of whether he thinks its causing excessive noise which it absolutely is.
In that respect though I do not know how so many harley guys get away with this given their bikes are insanely loud and obnoxious.
Your father is a cop or are you a cop?
Don't go that deep ...
OP: Good luck with that.
