I hate you guys! LOL Well not really... I just dropped another 600$ last night for the bike (sort of). My Saddleman Bags should come in today and I'll get them on tonight so I'm gonna go on a drive and figured it was time to get a camera and gps. Will take pics once I have the bags on and of course while I'm out tomorrow.

Your camera will be able to record movies ...so your bike will need a better pipe as well for the crowd to enjoy the sound ;)

After last night it may be a while before I get the pipes. LOL plus I'm not big on setting off car alarms in my neighborhood :D They actually kind of like me (ok tolerate me is more likely).

There are lot of threads about this, but if you want to add a little pep without being too loud (a deeper sound) ...do the baffle piercing.

I love the sound!

AHAM, that's funny, mine came in today, too! Can't say I did much more than open the box, and throw them across the fender!! I did spend a few minutes in a staring contest with them, trying to figure out just how in the **** I want to mount them!!! I may be doing some fabricating in the very near future, as I think my YAMAHA OEM support bars seem to be uneven... well, the left side seems to push the bag out farther, judging off the relationship to the rear signals. Anyway, good luck, and as always, post pics and procedures so dummies like me can have epiphanies !!

Thats to clear the rear pulley.

Okay, well, I hadn't thought of that .... makes the bike and bags look crooked as **** from behind, though!! Why wouldn't they have made the exhaust side match that ... guess, I'm just screwed then?? can't bend it without f**ing up the chrome, right? thinking maybe shimming out the exhaust side support bar is just about the only option ....??
