A motorcycle is required to have a muffler in PA. A set of drag pipes with a baffle is a crude form of a muffler. The only real noise limit is at the discretion of the police, legally, if a cop writes up a disturbing the peace ticket or something related, a judge will probably let it stand.

All of the provinces in Canada have motorcycle noise laws. Motorcycles are manufactured with silencers on the exhaust, and if the noise level goes above 100 dB at 5000 rpm on a bike with a 3-4 cylinder engine, you will be fined. Edit: All noise laws are either part of the Highway Traffic Act (and there's a different one for each province) or a city's by-laws statutes....and THOSE can all be different as well.

What should we do to decrease noise pollution?

One very effective way to reduce motorcycle noise pollution is for states, cities and towns to adopt and enforce the EPA label law. All motorcycles made after 1982 must have an EPA noise certified exhaust with a label embossed into the muffler. It's illegal under federal law to replace the noise certified exhaust with one that isn't certified or to tamper with the legal muffler to make more noise. The city of Denver enacted an EPA label-based ordinance in 2007 and in less than two years mostly solved their motorcycle noise pollution problem with consistent enforcement and fines starting at $500. There's more information about this at the Maine Citizens For Quiet Motorvehicles Facebook page.
