first, thanks guys for all your input. you've been super helpful with this. now, i'm leaning towards the togas over the preds simply because i like the more vintage look to 'em. am i sacrificing that much in loudness and tone? thanks, brothers.

dunno, as I've never seen or heard Togas in person.

I've had my predators about a year now, one of them cracked at a weld a month back. I called British Customs and they had a new one at my door within a week, no questions asked, or money exchanged.


I'm not saying that NH won't stand by his products, but just know that the pred's are quality stuff with good service behind them.

Taking into consideration that the vintage look is what your after, buy the NH pipes...if for whatever reason you decide you want to try the pred's...you can always sell the NH pipes off either here or on other forums.

Your going to find that aftermarket part's and accessory's for our bikes are rather expensive, and in some case's overpriced to put it politely. I run the pred's, and can say it's probably the most worthwhile product BC sell's.

You won't regret the Togas. Great sound and looks. If they're too loud for you, you can alway install the small silencers that come with them. Easy to install and to remove.

The Togas might be somewhat quieter than the Preds, but you can't beat the tone from the Togas. It's the real Triumph sound. I have Togas and have received compliments on the sound from fellow Triumph riders and even from Harley folks.

Probably the best compliment came from a group of sport bike riders when I was visiting the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum last summer. We were all parked in a carport, the sport bike guys had fired up and were cranking on the throttles. It made quite a noise in the carport. I fired up the T100, cranked up the Togas and the sport bike guys' eyes looked like saucers. The leader waved me ahead and said "after you, captain". :cool:

To my ear, the Togas and Predators sound pretty much alike; however, the Togas I heard were on a 904 and my Togas are on a 790. If you like the looks of the NH Togas, get them--you will like em. The quality is very good and the sound is right out of the '60's in my opinion.
