He definitely should! If you google his last name alone, it's the first result.

These are the Exhaust that were on the bike when I bought it from Mancuso Harley Davidson in 2004. I have been riding with the same exhaust for over 5 years with no complaints from any other Officer. I have no worries if he reads this blog. He will be talking to me soon enough in front of the Judge.

Hey brandy, Ed here, used to teach w you over at spring branch

Just cuz mancuso put it on doesn't make it legal, if I'm not mistsken HD has shied away from putting on exhausts on bikes because of the bad rap the loud exhaust have.

Hey Ed. The Exhaust may be over the desmil level, however there is the Spirit of the Law and the Letter of the law and there is a Rogue Cop harrassing Motorcycle Riders under the color of Authority. You know me and I am a very law obiding citizen. I do not race, rap my pipes or act irresponsibly. He could have advised me of the law but he didn't want to talk, he sat inside his car just writing the ticket. I was an Officer for 20 years and I can recognize a Rogue Cop with a personal ajenda adn this Officer is such a person.

Hopefully your opinion will carry some weight. This guy is doing no good. Anyone in their right mind can see what he is doing. This is way beyond law enforcement.

Dunno, if holtsclaw is right and all these exhaust are illegal, which most are....
Then what "leg do you have to stand on"

Well your honor, he's picking on bikers w/ illegal exhaust and that's not right.......lol

if I was a cop I'd target parents w loose kids in the car

In most states exhaust violations are.a secondary offense. That is you cannot be pulled over for it, but can be issued a citation during another ticketed offense. I assume the law has been examined to find out that TX is different? Or does Houston have specific laws regarding thus?

by the same token, and the point should be just because it's aftermarket doesnt mean it's illegal.

Did he check the pipes before writing you a ticket?




Offhand I've found a couple aftermarkter mfgs that have EPA compliant exhausts.

Noise laws generally require a complaint and an officer can not have his peace disturbed or be a complaintant while on duty. The problem is not that he in inforcing the law, the problem is that he is using the law to harrass citizens. He is profiling and targeting law obiding citizens. He was even called into his Supervisors office and given a written order to stop issuing citations to motorcycles for loud exhaust because the law was too subjective. If I had been speeding or violating another law I would undestand also being cited for loud exhaust even though I don't believe my exhaust are loud enough to be illegal. I plan to have my pipes checked and measured so I know exactly what my descimal level is. There is the letter of the law and the Spirit of the law. He is not applying the spirit of the law as it was intended. He is using it as a tool for his Personal Religious Crusaide!
