A new gold rush for California, but this one has been in the works for quite a while.

Bill 435 was just signed into law, requiring motorcycle exhausts produced in 2013 and later to have an EPA Certification stamp. One more thing to get fined for when you are pulled over at db check point, except now not only will you get fined, they will probably impound your bike on the spot!

I hate loud pipes, but they are just as bad on diesel pick up trucks and ricer Civics. Why not a similar bill for cagers?

Seems to me with the current (and of course, ongoing) energy crisis and with gas over $4.00 a gallon in CA this is crazy - fuel efficient older bikes will be now heading for the scrap pile.

...and remember, since Kalifornia is a bellwether state you can expect other states to jump on the dog pile real soon.

This law only calls for a Fix it Ticket, first offense $50-$100 and $150 to $250 for further offenses. Fix it tickets in CA, only cost $10 if you have proof of correction.
It still sucks but it's going to be hard to enforce and only on 2013 and newer motorcycles.
