It's hard to get Arnold to sign 'anti-biker' laws because he's an avid biker himself. And a lot of his hollywood friends (thus finical supporters) are as well.

This is from the LA Times:

Schwarzenegger tells motorcyclists to pipe down, signs noise bill
September 28, 2010*|* 6:17 pm

Motorcyclist and governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger today signed his name to a controversial motorcycle noise bill. SB 435, also known as the Motorcycle Anti-Tampering Act, gives law enforcement officials the ability to cite noise pollution violations under the California Vehicle Code, reinforcing a 27-year-old federal regulation that is rarely enforced.

"Gov. Schwarzenegger signed SB 435 to make California consistent with federal law in respect to motorcycle parts, pollution and noise standards," said Matt Connelly, deputy press secretary for the governor.

The law, which goes into effect for motorcycles and aftermarket parts from the 2013 model year forward, states that motorcyclists pulled over for other traffic violations could also be*cited*for illegally*noisy exhaust pipes. A first violation could result in a fine of $50 to $100 -- a fix-it ticket that could be dismissed with proof of correction. Subsequent offenses would result in fines of $100 to $250.

SB 435 requires motorcycles to maintain their federally required emissions equipment on both original and aftermarket exhaust systems, including a readily visible EPA stamp that certifies compliance.

"Our motorcycle-riding governor clearly recognizes that a few bad apples on our roads are infringing on the rights of others with their illegal, attention-seeking loud pipes," said SB 435 author Sen. Fran Pavley (D-Agoura Hills) in a news release issued Tuesday.

SB 435 was supported by the American Lung Assn. It was opposed by the Motorcycle Industry Council and the American Motorcyclist Assn., both of which recommended the J-2825 standard developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers "as a fair, practical and economical enforcement tool," according to an industry spokeswoman. J-2825 is a stationary sound test and specifies the type of sound meter to be used.

Really no different that DOT numbers being required here in TX. Not saying it doesn't happen, but I don't know of any stories of people putting false DOT numbers to get by.

I copied and pasted this info from another site!

For those of you who missed this, sb 435 is a law to enforce the fed pollution regs for Ca. vehicles.
It will probably be followed by our NW states quickly and the rest of the nation.

I stole this off another site;

"It was posted that Ca Gober signed SB 435 into law last night .. I hope you guys still have your stock pipes .. I really like the first line of the law " Makes it a crime for a person to park " You don't even have to ride it to get a ticket !!! Just park it with aftermarket exhaust and get a ticket .. WOW"


SUBJECT: Motorcycle exhaust system federal noise labels

SUMMARY: Makes it a crime for a person to park, use, or operate a motorcycle, registered in the state that is manufactured on and after January 1, 2011, that does not have a federal U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) noise emission control label. Specifically, this bill:

1) Requires that a registered motorcycle manufactured on and after January 1, 2011, and operating within the state, have a federal U.S. EPA noise emission label.

2) Establishes that a violation of the labeling requirement is a mechanical violation and a peace officer is prohibited from stopping a motorcycle solely on a suspicion of a violation of this labeling requirement. Requires a peace officer to cite a violation of this law as a secondary infraction.

3) Requires that a person issued a notice to appear or to whom a complaint is filed, to produce a proof of correction.

4) Establishes a violation of this law as punishable by the same fine that is currently established pursuant to the equipment anti-tampering law.

EXISTING LAW:

1) Known as California's anti-tampering law, prohibits the installation, sale, offer for sale, or advertisement of any device, apparatus, or mechanism intended for use with, or as a part of, any required motor vehicle pollution control device or system that alters or modifies the original design or performance of the motor vehicle pollution control device or system.

2) Subsequent to the purchase of a motor vehicle (including a motorcycle), establishes an exemption by the California Air Resources Board (ARB) if an alteration, modification, or modifying device, apparatus, or mechanism does either of the following:

a) Not to reduce the effectiveness of the required motor vehicle pollution control device; or,

b) To result in emissions from the modified or altered vehicle that are at levels that comply with existing state or federal standards for that model year.

3) Requires a motorcycle to have equipped at all times an adequate muffler in constant operation and properly maintained to prevent any excessive or unusual noise. Prohibits a person from modifying the exhaust system of a motor vehicle in a manner which will amplify or increase the noise emitted by the motor of the vehicle that exceeds the noise limits or otherwise makes the motorcycle noncompliant.

4) Existing federal regulations require a motorcycle manufactured on and after January 1, 1983, and exhaust emission systems for those motorcycles, to meet specified noise emissions standards and require that a label be affixed onto the motorcycle or exhaust emission system indicating that the motorcycle or exhaust emission system meets the noise emissions standards.

Original proposal?

Laws like this only get passed when it benefits the state or the politicians who signed it FINANCIALLY. That is why I do not participate when they have petitions trying to clear up the law here in Texas. If it were to benefit the MC community it would benefit no one financially. Odds are if we make waves this will be our future here as well.

If it does then everyone will buy Ducatis and thumpers. Those are the only bikes with great sounding stock exhausts. Come to think of it maybe Ducati is the one behind this. LOL.
