Default Very happy with the Samson BG3 Slashers...

First chance for a nice long day of riding after putting these suckers on. Sound is awesome and performance is great! I'm very happy with these pipes. No -- they aren't drag pipes, but when you get on them, they bark big time. I'm running a SEII a/c with a 45 slow and 180 main and performance (after warming up) is just what I want -- pulls like a locomotive and no carb farts. I'm a happy camper exhaust-wise.

Oh, YEAH baby!!!!! Now THAT'S what I'm talkin' bout!!!!!!

They look fantastic on your bike the way you have it set up.

Nice to see someone else running these now, dag. Glad to hear that you like them so far. They do bark real nice when provoked, don't they?

My $.02, I do wear earplugs on trips longer than 10-15 minutes, especially at cruising speed. Actually, I am gonna flip you a PM for more info and a question...

While the style is not my favorite choice, your bike fully dressed up with the big seat and all the leather... and the aux lights, man it just looks sweet!

I think it could be one of the ones in the parts catalog in the front sportster section... where they have pics of the bikes done different styles.

It looks really clean, the pipes help a lot and everything looks like it should be there.

I even like the crash bars even on this setup... Thats sayin a lot.

The bike looks nice, I know you have fun riding it!

Take care..

I'm more into the KISS principle but your bike looks like it should be on a calender. The pipes are great.

Yup, IMO those are the best sounding pipes for a sporty. Without baffles though.

Thanks, all, for the kind words. It's funny how you can go in a completely different direction than originally planned for. I never figured my wife would like to ride as much as she does, so I ditched the plans for a solo seat and added the Mustang tourer and the sissy bar. If it were just me riding solo, it would have gone in a completely different direction, but I'm very happy with it and I'm happy to have the company on our rides.
