Hard to put up windows when your walking through a parking lot, along the road or standing at a intersection waiting to cross.

I always have my system full blast he was behind me for a little then turned on his lights. I pull into the parking lot and turned my system down. He told me I had a fancy stereo asked for my drivers license and insurance. Went back to hit bike came back and told me he could hear me a 1/2 a mile away which is bullshit. He gave me a warning then said if he sees a red Ranger bumping he will give me a ticket.

Anyone else have this happen to them?
That cop is just being an ******* really. I've had a few things like this happen to me over my exhaust system. It ended when the judge threw it out and called the state cop a "Barney Fife wannabe" in which I laughed like hell outside the court room. I didn't dare laugh in the court room that's for sure.

With my windows up, AC blasting, and my own stereo on, I can still hear the people who think being loud makes them cool. I laugh when they get ticketed for it. Doing his job does not constitute being an *******.

Ya we had them also. However some one called the police and they no longer live there. I think they were moved back to Mexico.

The cops around my area are pricks on a good day. We had a town cop get a DUI one night and no one spent a night in jail. He also got his job back too. Rather than take him to jail, they drove him home instead. If that had been anyone else, they'd been thrown under the jail. That's how the police operate in my area. They don't bother anyone concerning stereo systems at all here in my area though.

You're young yet, you'll grow up. (hopefully) There will come a time when you realize the world doesn't revolve around you, usually happens sometime after high school or college when the reality's of the real world sink in. Enjoy being young and oblivious while you can because if will catch up to you eventually.

Now that is too loud when you can't hear an emergency vehicle coming. I prefer to keep mine stock though. I don't see anything wrong with upgrading your stereo system, but I can see where it's too loud in certain areas and situations. There is a such thing as too loud and most people go too far in that area.
