Converted dirt bike in Kennewick

Anyone have any trouble with law enforcement while riding their plated bike in Kennewick?

I once had trouble with a cop while i was riding my moms horse around the track at my high school. He was technically off-road-only.

If the motorcycle has the proper pavement required equiptment, the only thing I think the police could challenge is if the exhaust has been modified.

The below listed law is still on the books.

RCW 46.37.537
Motorcycles—Exhaust system.
No person shall modify the exhaust system of a motorcycle in a manner which will amplify or increase the noise emitted by the engine of such vehicle above that emitted by the muffler originally installed on the vehicle, and it shall be unlawful for any person to operate a motorcycle not equipped as required by this section, or which has been amplified as prohibited by this section.

I did a KX500 SuMo a few years ago and had no trouble even with the banging away 2 stroke. Proper signals, head, tail and brake lights. Inspected. All good. Got a lot of thumbs up.
