LOL Clearwater Glenda? are you serious?

Crappy Tire specials to be truthful.

They don't do much to light up the road but folks coming towards ya can sure see them and that's what matters.

Re your last sentence: The latter is more important than the former.

I did the same to my XCT
Funny how it sound completely different on the bike.

I am glad you posted this. The Vtwin sound is good. I find on the bike it sounds cloudy or dirty like its missing. Hard to explain

But the drive by was clean. It sounded like you were at 500 rpm.

What was your speed and rpm?

There is all kinds of you tube vids out there of Vics with pipes and modded stock pipes and all just sitting idling or being revved up witch is a wast of time.

Yep, sound much different from the saddle.

I'm guessing my speed was around 80 km/h and I was in 5th.

I agree about the sitting idling and revving ... that doesn't do a thing IMO.

I quite like how the drilled baffles BARK when I "get on it" but purr when just cruisin. I don't just have a Victory now... I got a dog and a cat too LOL
