New FP duals 2 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
I finally bought some duals (or I should say my insurance company bought them). I love the look and sound of them I just wish they were a pinch louder. Maybe they are loud enough it's just the noise is behind me and split between both ears now. It has a way better tone to it than the HK Big Straights I had before. My bike seems to run better with them also. I don't know if it's in my head or not but it just seems happier. I finally heard the engine noise people talk of also. I dropped my tank off this morning to the body shop to get fixed and I'll be done with it for now. The dent shows up good in my sigpic if you click on it to enlarge it. How do I get it to show up larger without clicking on it?

The pipes and the bike look really nice. Congrats on you new purchase. I'm sure you'll learn to love the sound.

If you want them louder, you can always pull the packing and baffles. Just be warned they will be obnoxiously loud if you do. I've got the Roadhouse Doolies with no baffles and packings, and it sounds like an old school big block.
