Dragos Dragula exhaust,.. best sounding pipe I have ever heard or owned.

'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.

I have a D&D 2 into 1 Fat Cat. I love the sound --- very low rumble --- and I love te performance. I ran true duals for a long time, which had the low rumble, but sounded a little different than the 2 into 1. They were both very different sounding pipies from idling, to running steady, to decelerating. However, I liked them both. I rode a buddies Glide yesterday that had true dual Rhineharts and they sound awesome also. No offense to the ladies out there, but pipes are like women --- it is easy to like them all. I suggest you go to a bike night and listen to the different pipes on different bikes.

Another one for Dragos ,nice low rumble but when you twist the grip everyone knows that ain't no stock pipe . That and the fact they are ceramic coated inside and out makes his pipes hard to beat .

Also V&H which sounded nice but after the SE255 cam install sound level increased about 50%. Just the right amount for me.
