Direct fit exhaust options

Hey everyone, I have a stock 2005 standard Bonneville. With Christmas around the corner, I'm looking to get exhaust pipes that will make my Triumph sound like it rolled out of 1970. I tried the complete bafflectomy, but that doesn't make much of a difference in sound.

Who makes an aftermarket loud exhaust that I can slap on the bike without having to cut, rig up brackets or hangers, or mess around with trying to make it fit?

From the research I already did I found BC predators and possibly TORS makes a muffler then can fit without changing stuff around. Anyone know anything about installing Burgess, or Emgo?

Other aftermarket direct fit brands would be appreciated.

Staintunes sound awesome, but they are a bit expensive. They look good and sound great

Norman Hyde TOGA's will give you the sound you are looking for.

I love the Staintune teardrop muffler and the classic Norman Hyde are both awesome looking pipes. Both are also direct fit according to their websites. I'm more concerned with ease of installation and look more than anything. Staintune and Norman Hyde Tors doesn't seem to be a popular used product on ebay. Looks like I'll have to get out the credit card for these pipes.

I really like the sound and looks of the burgess style silencers sold by commando specialties. I found a pair pretty cheap on ebay that are supposedly new. They don't have all the brackets and such, but I'm going to send an email to commando specialties and see if they can sell me that stuff. If not, I may just dish out the 260.00 bucks to commando for the whole package. I really like the Norman Hyde Togas too.
Anyone have these burgess style mufflers? What do you like/dislike about them.

My Staintunes bolted right on to my 2005. I like them a lot, and people who might know (I don't) say they have that old-school sound, and they're not horribly loud. They were, however, horribly expensive.

+1 on the N Hydes.

Hard work may pay off some day, but laziness always pays off right now.

Other Motorcycle: it has pedals.
D&D's are very similar to the Predators mentioned above but have a deeper, less-raspy exhaust note. Also, the Emgo silencers are pretty nice, too.

I installed the EMGO shorty slip-ons. 20 minutes to install, looks great and sounds awesome. I did go to the dealer to get the Arrow 2-2 map installed.

For $150, couldn't be happier.
