As the old timer here, I have to agree with our worldly friend Andre. I witnessed WWII from afar, but was well aware of what we were fighting; National Socialism and Imperialism. Now I see many in the US supporting National Socialism, a system that murdered upwards of 17 million civilians and hundreds of thousands of allied troops.
I live in a city, county and state run by liberals who talk about freedom out of one side of their mouth while robbing us of them from the other side. They have even gone to the extent of criminalizing everyday words and call masculinity "toxic." They want anything banned that don't like, such as guns.
No, my American friends, we are no longer the free society that I once knew. We are highly regulated (even limited to how much water our toilets can use) and have to pay taxes and fees on what used to be free. You may remember a time when most pickups sported a gun rack at the rear window and sometimes carried a rifle or two. Try that today. A kid can't even point a finger gun in school without getting suspended. We now live in a society that is controlled by those who are too easily offended by too much and indoctrinated by the media and our education systems.
Sadly, Andre is right.

I don't really know enough about Australia's politics and laws to comment on them. I think they have a parliamentary government like Great Britain. I know our gun laws are much more liberal than theirs and I like their immigration policies and laws. I have worked with their Army and they are well trained and professional. I have known several and worked for a engineer that is Australian and liked him well. When he retired he went back to Sidney, Australia. His wife divorced him, she is American and he has 2 kids with her. I did have 2 Australian women that told me Texas men where extremely polite and well mannered compared to Australian men. I don't know if that's true or not and they don't know some of the American men I know. I have never met an Australian person I didn't like professionally or leisurely. They do have extremely beautiful sexy women!

It's just the statement a few posts above to even think that if you cannot have a gun or exhaust that your country is more free then another.... And the USA is far less free than many more countries... I see this attitude all the time on the drilling jackups, and it always make me laugh ....

The polite part is an interesting point,

Klumpster, try this bloke on the Gold Coast, he's advertised three sets of pipes, one set of which he refers to as '1 Victory motors set'. Can't hurt to give him a call:

Alternatively, there are several sets on ebay that are in the USA. Postage is stupidly expensive but what I normally do is get onto the seller and see if they can get a price from USPS to sent them Priority Mail International. It usually works out heaps cheaper than the ebay shipping calculator that sellers use.

Also for the benefit of our US friends following this thread, the OP's bike won't be seized if he doesn't get some suitable pipes. It will be put off the road though until he can present it with proper mufflers.

Cheers,

Russ.
