That gives the only measurement the authorities deem to be valid.
Ok but whats their db level? I don't anything on the web by any authority saying you have to have this level at this distance with the meter at this angle.

By the way there is an ass on a blade with the baffles out, poping wheelies up on the top road and know he is going to put the police on a witch hunt for bikers!

Funny side story...

I was on a government committee representing auto industry expertise, so we were in this board room full of retired heads of GM, FORD powertrain etc, experts from universities etc... all very formal in full suits... and this guy from CARB gets up to present to us with long hair and huuuge mutton chop side burns down to his chin... and all anyone could talk about afterwards was how we couldn't focus on the presentation because of how ridiculous this guy looked. Anyway, they presented a bunch of hippie nonsense not based on real engineering and facts, but passed CA laws on it regardless. So I'm not surprised.
Thanks from gigantor
