I just picked up my new Storm yesterday and rode it 200 klms home. It's got shorty TORS with the the Twin "T" handlebars.

The sound and ride is incredible!

I am looking into buying an exhaust, and by looking I mean buy without my wife's knowledge or consent. It's a married thing, anyways I have always wanted to hear how the Staintunes sound. I will probably end up getting the Hogslayers ($650 ish), for the only reason I believe Staintunes are a couple grand.

I've heard the Staintunes online although it's just a picture of a Thunderbird with the sound of the staintunes behind it. How do they sound or even better can you upload some audio?
