I found this pic in the DL1000 map sticky. Anyone know what these are? I can PM gcarper1 if not.

Sure would be sweet if they were dual for the 6-fiddy too...

Without the passenger pegs it looks really sharp and once he gets that fender hacked down, that bike is gonna look really good.

Anyway, awesome bike gcarper!

Sorry, can't say that I like the look. They look to short with to much vertical gap. If we all liked the same thing we would have cookie cutters.

It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow.

it seems to give it a motogp look. That vertical gap is what all the super sport bikes these days are going for. I think it looks sweet on the Strom.
However, it is definitely a good thing we dont all like the same thing. Then our bikes would be like those Harley guys :mrgreen:

That small of can seems like it would be either too loud or too restrictive.

He said it was a custom glasspack job, IIRC.

That would make it a straight pipe (no baffles) with glass on the sides. LOUD!

Yeah, I bet it is super loud if it is just straigt through glass packs.

I dont think I would like my bike to be so loud but I would definitely like to hear it in person.

Would probably be louder than a D&D exhaust, which is barely an exhaust as far as I'm concerned.

Lowered CG

I wonder if the handling is improved any? I always wondered what my ride would be like if some 40 lbs were situated at least 8" lower.
