Shoot Daz, I'm still getting used to the "ump" of my 1600! I was used to my 805cc Volutia and about messed my pants the first time I rode my Tbird. I'm perfectly happy for the time being with my 1600 with stock pipes - nothing wrong with it all.
Yea, yea, your right, the BBK would be nice... there's time though - maybe at 12,000 mile service?
I do plan to change the pipes though because I'm still not wild about the flared "mega-phone" look of either the stock or TORs. I know you're in love with the short TORS (and the BBK), but to me the short TORS just makes the flared look more obvious. I'll really leaning toward the Hogslayers.
