    Stock exhaust loudness

    I had planned a trip to Slovenia, Austria and Germany in a few days. Will see if it's still a go, if no, Greece it's the second winner :002:
    Just came with this article:
    https://timesfamous.com/worldnews/osterreich-tirol-beschliest-fahrverbote-fur-laute-motorrader/

    Does anyone knows how many db our bikes have? In the manual I have found nothing about that.

    It is in the "Registration certificate" of the bike...

    I think so because the 950 it's not a loud bike at low revs.

    From an article on Austrian noise level ban proposal -

    "We recently reported on Germanyís crackdown with special noise cameras, no-go areas and an 80dB limit on motorcycle exhausts that could make all BMW motorcycles quieter.
    Now Austria will ban specific motorcycles with exhaust noise over 95dB on a popular 100km motorcycle route through the Tyrol mountains after receiving complaints from residents.
    Tyrol mountains are popular among riders (Image: www.touring-italy.net)
    Bikes that will be barred from this road include the Aprilia Tuono, Aprilia RSV4, BMW S 1000 RR, Ducati Hypermotard, Ducati Multistrada 1260, Ducati Diavel, Kawasaki Z900 and KTM 890 Duke.
    Police will do spot checks on motorcycles and can hand out Ä220 (about $A350) on-the-spot fines.
    Crackdown intensifies
    We could appreciate a crackdown on exceedingly loud aftermarket exhausts, but these bikes are all legally allowed to have more than 95dB under European regulations.
    Somehow Austria thinks this area is exempt from European laws.
    And what is worse is that the ban only applies to motorcycles, not cars or trucks or buses! Thatís discrimination, pure and simple."

    The 95 Db it refers to is the level stamped on the Reg. plate on the bike..

    P.S. my 950S has 95Db on the reg form, so ok if this proposal goes ahead...
