Default Getting new pipes, which style looks better...

This winter before the next riding season starts I am getting a new set of pipes for the Sporty.

There are 2 styles I am looking at and have mocked them up in Photoshop.

Down & Outs...



Slash Cuts...



I would be happy with either style, but I would like XLF'ers to chime in. You guys have an eye for this kind of thing.

Thanks

I prefer the down and outs on your mock up. Looks better with that front end.

Down and outs.
The slash cuts just look stale to me.

I like the slash cuts. The down and outs upset the flow. The ends of them look like an after thought.
