Default Hey,hey, 1st Post!!!

I've tried for ages to get some medium-loud pipes fro my Sportster. It's just too loud, but the standard pipes are way too quiet - I don't want to ride a sewing machine, nor do I want to set off car alarms.



Well I guess I won't have the choice any more. Boring old people rule the world! (NB I just had my 47th birthday)

I've noticed that HD seems to be doing a lot recently to "freshen" their image.

The new street rod with real brakes, the new Buells. Etc....



This makes me wonder if they are at long last starting to listen to what the rest of us would buy if they would only build it.



Or are they gearing up for some real competition from the new Victory/KTM partnership?



What ever the reason, I'm really happy with most of what's going on at HD/Buell currently.

Speaking of what's new at HD. When are the MO test pilots going to get to review the new XB12X?

Have you tried the up-pipes from these guys:

I had them on my Sportster, and they were just right. They also attracted a lot of attention.

Default Screamin' eagle

All the "off road" high performance mod stuff for Harley's is in a separate "under the counter" magazine and has been for a couple of years.



All you need to do is put on your black leather duster with optional arm fringe and walk up to the darkened end of the parts counter and say "got any fresh chicken....er..I mean screamin' eagle parts catalogs?"
