TORs on America

When I bought my America last year, it had TORs and I really like the sound.
My question is, as on the T-Bird, do America TORs come in short & long?
If so, mine end about 2" behind the axle. Are they short or long TORs?

The ride might be fun, but at the end, it really is the Destination that counts.

Yes, they did. The long TOR was just like/as long as the stock original muffler but without all the internal baffle bits. My old "short" slant cut style ended just before the rear axle. They did have different styles early on, tapered end and slant cut end.

2009 America with some modifications, a lot of fun that I can ride all day. (sold and miss my 2008 Bonneville, a great daily driver)

Well, it is slant cut, but since I didn't have the original mufflers, I have nothing to compare it to but my aging memory of the 2006 America I sold 5 years ago. I was thinking that the stock mufflers on it went back farther than these.
So..... short or long?

Maybe the slant cut was shorter than the tapered style. Those look longer than my old "short" TORs but shorter than the original long tapered mufflers. I do have some pics from many years ago. First pic is the original before the first service and the second the short TORs after the first service.

Also the EFI mufflers are presumably different from my carbed 2008.
So then, anyone with a carbed model have input regarding the TORs?

Thanks for that, Taber. Mine are definitely long then; about 8" longer than those.

I bought the short TORs last year and they extend to the axle nut like the picture from Matty above. I've never seen the long ones, but I assumed they extend as far as the stock ones did.

So, how much louder are the TORs vs stock? I know stock is pretty tame.

I have a stock '14 America LT & The 2008 with long TORs.
The TORs are definitely louder, but in my opinion, sound very good.
I had a 2005 Speedmaster for a short while with Bubs. It was obnoxious.
