Unless the guard has calibrated ears for how loud the exhaust is id laugh at him, Where states how loud an exhaust can be as there is no testing for bikes so the exhaust thing is a matter of his opinion with noway for him to back it up unless he was carrying a portable decibel meter with calibration cert.

No issues with filtering myself and have done it many times passing garda cages.

But yeah, as the lads said before you have to make sure you don't act the bollocks while you do so.

Where exactly on the N11 was the guy? I'm going to be travelling that route on a bike in the near future.

I've seen people complaining about him before, he's obviously got a pet hate.

A strikeout is not a judgement, it simply means that the case was not heard at that time. If a pig wishes to persue that case he can then serve a second summons. the only limitation is that he applied for the first summons within six months of the alleged offence. he then has all the time in the world to serve ya with the said summons and any subsequent ones. District courts are known to hear cases like this up to two and a half years after the fact and deem that to be not such an unreasonable delay such an to cause prejudice to a fair trial.

deffo right about pig being a winner, you will lose something either way the chips fall.
Please don't advise what you do not understand, firstly it's in law he must be provided with a ticket first, gardai can no longer summons someone for an offence for which a ticket exists, the ticket must be issued first and if it goes unpaid then the summons issues.

Secondly you are not entitled to disclosure from a superintendent upon writing, disclosure is at the discretion of a judge and can only be made upon application before same.

The one thing you said is right, get a solicitor as the court will not take nicely to a person trying to handle the case themselves especially when armed with internet advice

As members have said already in this thread it's down to what manner you were driving, if traffic was stationary and you were making good progress I can't see the issue, if traffic was moving at a reasonable speed and you were lane splitting well then you can see why you were stopped.

The old rule was 20/20, meaning never filter traffic moving faster than 20mph, and never exceed 20mph when filtering.

I learned very early in my biking life the hazards of going too fast filtering when a passenger in a taxi opened the fucking door, I was going too fast and had fuck all reaction time.

Not saying it's the case with the OP but it's amazing what some people consider filtering to be.

The only option I can see for the OP is to pay up.
Anything else is plain stupid.Going to court will cost far far more and will most likely end in a far worse penalty.
Even if you do win,the cop will devote his life to harassing you.
Pony up and put it down to experience,anything else is madness.
