Default Shopping for pipes, need suggestions

i just bought a new 2008 Vegas and am looking for pipes. There are so many different kinds i dont even know where to start. I am looking for a low rumble but nothing obnoxious. Any suggestions?

Stay away from Shotgun pipes without baffles. Mine are so loud that I can't hear my buddies ZX14 with open Brocks exhaust while cruising right behind him. When we both hit it, mine drowns his out.

2007 Hammer, 260 Metz, Shotgun exhaust, S3 cams, LED hidden turn signals, HID Hi/lo headlights, a few Ness accessories, S&S intake, PC3, and dyno tune.

I to have a New 08 Vegas Premium and want to get new pipes. I like the sound of the 2 into 1 exhaust, but not the looks. Would have bought the Victory X-Bow's except they don't work on the 100ci engine. They sound alot like the 2 into 1s. Now I have turned my attention to the New Slash-Ness Pipes that look alot like the X-Bows. If anyone can give any feedback on the sound of the newer Slash-Ness exhasut it would help.

Hands down the best performing, looking, and sounding 2 into 1 system is the RPW Thor.

Best price is probably
www.metricthunder.com
Might take 30 days, but worth the wait.

Been thinking of a stage 1 with pipes myself for my '11 Vegas, but with the power loss I don't think I can justify it. Would love to up the sound a little bit, but not at the expense of power.

Anything out there that increases performance but isn't obnoxiously loud? Heard shotguns on a 2009 Hammer and they sounded great - looking for that level of sound.
