Nothing worse than riding behind someone with aftermeal exhaust.

Thanks for that Bob. The only negative I've ever heard was at a GWRRA gathering one afternoon when I only had the single baffles in them. One of the ladies was thoroughly displeased that a Goldwing could actually make noise. All the guys however were very interested and liked them. I do prefer the dual baffles though.

Whenever we go on our charity rides I always ride with the other Wings. First time out I was behind the HD's . Never again!
