Hope this video does the Sleepers justice.
It's eight minutes long... Some other exhaust clips I have seen are quite short...
Thanks to my son's and my dog Django...

Fantastic - what a great video! Well done - the bike looks and sounds phenomenal - and all different viewpoints of the sound of the sleepers demonstrated!

Nice one!

Great video Flaco!

To all of you out there in "Bonnevilleland", I had the distinct pleasure of hearing them in person. While the video is impressive, I must say there's nothing quite like standing behind the bike and hearing them in person. Made all of my glands secrete at once. Congratulations on a great upgrade and a fine running machine!

I keep going back and forth from these sleepers to NH Togas...
Do not rule out the NH TOGA's!
They are great sounding and great looking pipes!
I went with the BC Sleeper Stainless... Well, because they're stainless!
Sound good to too! Like Predators!
I found that I ride a little more conservative 'cuz I don't have to twist it hard to be heard...
BIR invited me to ride w/ them to Bisbee from Tombstone last weekend...
Nice bunch of young Rebels that ride hard...
Me in the background, the one w/ the windshield...

They asked me after a Ton-Up ride that they didn't think I wanted to ride that fast / hard...
Shoot! I rode that hard 30 years ago! I have son's, guitars, basses older than them!
"I'm may be old but I'm not slow"... Sorry X-Choppers!
Stolen quote!
Great guys!
Check out their ride report....

Many thanks for posting that vid!

I'll be ordering a set as soon as I can unload my current EPCO exhaust, to offset the cost a little. The EPCOs sound nice, but they are a little too loud for my taste, especially on long trips.

You'll find you can control the sound to your liking w/ the throttle.
Cruise sound is perfect! Twist or snap it and, well, you know...

Mike's Pizza has the best dogs: Italian style with peppers, onions, fried spuds, and a tangy red sauce. Mmmmmm.....
Beagles are okay too.
Whoa! I just took exit 114 and couldn't find you or Mike's Pizza...
Got better directions?

Awesome sound and bike looks great! How does the dragon like the new pipes? He seemed to be hypnotized by the sweet exhaust tune ;)
