I love this bike.

Just went out for a quick 35 miles. The sound of the exhaust is intoxicating.

There is very little wind noise and all you can hear is the deeper exhaust note. Definitely better than the OE cans.

:D :D :D

You can tell it's the spring. The amount of bugs splatter on the visor was making it hard to see by the time I got home.

Dunno ... ;) It is only the end cans. But doesn't take long to swap back to OE.

Already told the insurance company about them ...No charge .. ;)

I'm wi Trev on the growling exhaust vid and I suppose your right on the bars/9 comparison but I prefer clipon type. I've thought about those variobar jobbies for years as an upgrade for different types of runs, would that work.

The more I ride her .. The more I love her. Bars and all ... ;)

Just rode over to show David at SP Engineering ... He was well pleased .. Said they were a bit loud .. I just smiled .. :D He took photos for his gallery/ebay photos.

He kindly gave me spacers for naught, so that I can fit the R&G exhaust hangers. Top bloke. =D>
