The 120th anniversary of Harley-Davidson is just around the corner and many of you are gearing up for this epic event. Riders from various parts of Europe, such as the United Kingdom, Scandinavia, France, and the Benelux, should be aware that many of the popular routes to Budapest pass through Germany and Austria. Next to beautiful curvy roads, picturesque villages and breath-taking vantage points, there is also an element that is less attractive to some of us riders: behind many of the trees an officer is lurking, and waiting to check whether your exhaust complies with the law and legislation.

Trip cut short? Fines for non-approved exhausts can be substantial

Long story short: the penalties for unapproved exhausts can be significant. The first thing the police will look for when you are pulled over is the EU-type plate on your exhaust. If it is not there, you may face not only a fine but it can also be the end of your journey as you are not allowed to continue your trip. Consider the disappointment of having your dream trip cut short and having to pay for a trailer to transport your bike home, which will be an expensive endeavor due to the long distance. Street legal exhaust upgrade When you don’t want to take that risk, you can go on your trip with the stock exhaust, but we know that for many of you that is not considered to be an option (and we fully understand that). But what if we told you, you could get an upgrade that does not only enhance your sound, it also makes you check your rear view mirror a lot less for any blue lights.

If you want to improve your overall riding experience, you should consider upgrading to an exhaust system that produces a pleasing sound while at the same time complies with European regulations. Dr. Jekill and Mr. Hyde offers an electronically adjustable exhaust that allows you to switch between different sound modes - which are all legal - ensuring that you always stay within the law and have a worry-free ride. Order one from your local dealer and have it installed before you hit the road - you can go wherever you want without having to worry about fines or having your cut your journey short.
