Stainless Brake lines... any reviews?

Curious is anyone is running Galfer or similar lines on their V2. Is it a worthy upgrade? Worth the $190 price tag?? I've had them on previous bikes and the brake feel was phenomenal, but the brakes are already pretty good on the V.

Would love to hear some thoughts...

Only the usual thoughts, that ss lines makes the feel different but don't affect the power.

I had Stainless front brake lines on my 2006 DL650 and they had a ice feel. I didn't bother with them in my 2012 DL650. I have a set of Galfers ready to install for the brakes and clutch of my 2015 DL1000 but the only reason I got them so as to allow me to install my risers. I really don't feel a need for me otherwise but if they have a great increase in feel I will be happy to share my thoughts.
