I've had mine for over 12,000 miles now and still love 'em. They definitely bring out the unique sound of My Bonnie and the finish is great.

This is my Bonneville. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My Bonneville is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My Bonneville, without me, is useless. Without my Bonneville, I am useless.

I had the original muffler, then with bafflectomy, then tors, then predators and then sleepers. I sold all the others and will keep the sleepers. The predators were just too loud for me.

You really need to think about what you want. At $600, it's a big decision. When I first installed mine about a year ago, they were louder than I expected. But I quickly grew to absolutely love them as much as I love the bike. I've done 3 trips now ranging from 1,000 to nearly 4,000 miles, and the wind is as loud or louder than the pipes above about 65 mph (even with a 16" Parabellum). I wear ear plugs and a full-face helmet all the time.

Mine yellowed a bit after about 3 months, but otherwise still look great. Stainless steel is a real plus.
