Stock L exhaust.

6 posts in this topic

Ya know, it's nice having a quiet bike, it really is.

I went for a 170 mile ride yesterday and got to thinking just how silent these pipe are. If your at the right rpm and off the throttle coasting, it's almost as if the engine isn't running and it was nice in the mountains being with nature and not disturbing anything.

Heck, I passed two deer and they just watched me cruise on by, not sure if they would of done that if I had an after market pipe on?

YES, I like the stock set up very much, never thought I'd say that.

I'm almost afraid to purchase an AM exhaust but am thinking of the old white brothers e series super trapp style and running it as quiet (3-4 disc) as possible. :thumbsup: May be a mistake though. :thumbsup:

Exactly, for sure!

I don't rev my L at all, I love just using the torque and thumping in the low to mid range. The bike seems happier there. I'm in no race, just out for a good ride, that's all! :thumbsup:

The main reason I bought an AM exhaust is so that the car drivers around me have a better chance of noticing me if they can also hear me. You can be in someones blind spot real easy and end up paying the consequences for them not seeing you there. It seems no matter where you are when something happens they say "I did not see you there". The stock pipe is nice and quiet but it can be dangerous too.

Most likely they would not hear/see you anyway as a large percentage would be too darn busy gabbing :cheers::bonk::lol: on the phone OR on the phone and Rocking out!!

It's nuts out there anymore!! :lol::busted::thumbsup: :thumbsup:
