Gotta say I recently heard the S&S pipes MK45 I think there called and they sound awesome, if was in the market for new pipes I would be looking at those.

I had a set of Cobra Neighbor Haters put on before took ownership of my 2019 RGS. I ready some very positive reviews, and if I do add headers, intake etc. later, they should sound even better. Road bikes with a few different slip on options, but like you - didn't want anything overly loud, just a good deep rumble. Also, parking lot evaluations are great, but I was concerned about the drone on highway speeds for 2+ hours of riding. During my test rides some sounded awesome, but I knew I couldn't handle them for an extended ride. I'm very happy with my decision. Also, all my test rides were at dealers.

I like my Rhineharts too. I've done the whole loud thing on my other bikes. It's loud enough, has a nice sound, but Def on the midler side imo. I've read the M8 isn't particularly loud regardless. Although I have heard some loud ass late model street and rg's. I Def don't miss the ringing in my ears...

the chrome has peeled off the inside edge and now I find the chrome bubbling on the one pipe. they are like 6 years old. weird thing is the bike never sees rain and is hardly ever dirty.

so back to my question. I don't want quiet and I don't want obnoxious. with so many to choose from, how would I know the sound is loud enough? bike weekend in wildwood is next weekend and I could shop there but am looking for suggestions. I see a wide range of prices, but its not like I can hear them before I buy.
When I bought my 13 RG Custom it had these Vance & Hines Twin Slash Slip-ons on it. The bike has a SE aftermarket air filter and a tune and that is it and it sounds good. Has a nice rumble at idle and you can hear it when you twist the throttle. My uncle has a set on his 13 Screamin Eagle Ultra too and they sound good on there too. Pretty fair price too.

Went through the same thing. Went to a couple HD shops and asked to listen to bikes with aftermarket mufflers. One of the parts guys let me listen to his CFRs (17 RGS) and ended up with those. The video clips just don't come close to listening in person.

I had a set of Klock Werks SS series slip-ons on the bike for awhile and I liked them. Not too loud but had a decent sound to them. I took them off the bike a month ago to go 2into1 one with the new motor

Went through that same issue with my first two RGs (bars as well). I bought a 2020 RGL this past Saturday and while standing at the parts counter I got "the talk" about how to nullify the factory warranty. I wanted to do something... Stage I preferably... but as he explained it, it seemed like a huge waste to do that through the dealership... that I should just wait. Then, the racks with slip-ons from SE, V&H, S&S, Rinehart, Cobra... would that investment ($700 or so) put a smile on my face when I rode? Which do I choose? Smiled and rode my stock bike home completely happy. I'll get there...

I have a 19 RGS... I went with the TAB Performance with the Zombie Baffles... 😍😍 I will probably never go with anything else. They are loud and aggressive, but tone out nicely on hwy. Checkem out

It's all about priorities. My Roadie is a touring bike, and as such I want it quiet. Quiet doesn't wear you out when you're 18 hours in the saddle. Quiet doesn't draw attention from Johnny Law. Quiet doesn't piss off the locals when you're out and about. I'm a Fullsac DX headpipe and stock CVO mufflers. In the not-too-distant future I'll be adding a TTS-100 cam, and I'll probably add the Fullsac 1.75" baffles and screens at that time. My hope is that it stays relatively quiet.

The Mistress is my loud bike. It's opening for Slayer and Testament this weekend.
