Yes I did get a ticket for the plate as well. $115.00
The statute in the trafic safety act says that the plate must be securely attached and not obscured. So it comes down to the officers discrection as to what HE feels is "obscured" There is no ruling on wether the plate is horizontally or vertically mounted. Standing behind the bike (or while riding in a police car as where this law comes from so they can see it) you can see the plate clearly, There is also no ruling on what degree of angle the plate must be visible from either. So I will fight that one as well....wont holt my breath there though.
The pipes were legal at idle but came in at 7db over the limit in the rev test. Now the ruling on the testing equipment says it is registed as 95% accurate (calibration test) so in final numbers you have to minus 5% from the total reading. That puts me at 1.85db over the limit not counting the ambient db reading in the area where the test was taken. The office did not minus the 5% nor did he reveal to me the reading of the ambient noise prior to doing the test. Those two items there are reason enough to get the ticket quashed. I will let you all know what happens as things progress. I have sent an email to the prosicutor requesting disclosure so I will see what the officer wrote in his report....if he did one.
