They will ticket anyone and EVERYONE they get a chance to. I have gotten one myself and I did fail the test. Yes I will fight it and continue to do so until they realize that this is profiling. The ONLY bikes ticketed seem to be Vtwins. While being tested a rice rocket car with a garbage can exhaust on it went roaring by with his stereo pounding so loud that the office actually had to wait for him to pass to continue talking to me!
Now we are not against the bylaw itself....only how it is enforced. Make it fair for everyone and things will be a lot better. Unfortunately there is no "approved" testing procedure in place for anything other than bikes so thats what they have sunk their teeth into.
It is the publics responsibility to know and understand the laws of the area in which they will be riding....thats their argument for ticketing out of towners.
As a side note....my buddy's BONE STOCK sportster failed the test right alongside mine....how would that grab ya?
