I like to hear my bike. I would say that I'm a loud pipe guy. it makes the bike feel more powerful and more fun to me. I like a loud idle. that being said "loud" really is a relative term. ive been beside bikes in traffic that were so loud I felt like walking over and punching the guy in the face. there is a big difference between loud and ear damaging. my hard chrome pipes are loudish but not nearly as loud as I would like.

04' Warrior with VH Propipe. I blew the baffle out one day during a ride. Maybe 4 years ago? Never replaced it or even thought to for a second. It is grumbly and the tone matchs the bikes character 100% If I could quite it down and keep that tone I would consider. I love/hate setting off car alarms though. Surprisingly my cousins Harley 883 idles louder than my warrior but that's about the only time. I love starting it with the throttle cracked just a little.-Especially with a good looking girl behind it. They always jump when it belches to life.

The only issue I have, I need help with it currently from an older gentleman. He has an attached garage-I'm not so sure he or his wife are going to appreciate it...I looked into buying a baffle a few days ago-but...nah

It is definitely obnoxiously loud. But I've never heard someone say it doesn't sound good

Gotta say loud to very loud is my usual set up, but I recently changed jobs to and have to take call in an OR/Trauma environment, and have to be able to take a call driving home in case I am called back. I put on my quieter 2-1 Roadhouse, which has a very deep sound, and can hear the call now! Mostly wind noise is the problem, but I love the loud, un-baffled Sampsons best. Nothing like loud pipes, and as long as you are not an A**hole, the neighbors are OK, no complaints rolling out at 5AM! I may put them back on soon...

I like stock. Not a troll. Not 105 years old. I just don't really like loud. I worry about my hearing. And I think the stock pipe, say what you want about the love it hate it appearance, but I think it sounds excellent in all truth on this bike.

My bike was bought with bigshots on it and I didn't really even want to ride it that way. I was worried my condo neighbors were going to call the cops. All sort of baffles really did very little for me. I went back to stock on purpose.

I hope people still like me. Hey wait...I do run on the dark side. Maybe that will up my cool... 😎. LOL

I like loud pipes. I don't like a**holes who have loud pipes. Especially if I'm conducting a motor vehicle stop and someone whacks the throttle open right as they're beside me as I'm speaking to a motorist. That's a sure fire way to get a "fix-it" ticket, you gotta pay the fine, report to DMV within 20 days with your stock or quiet pipe (if you still even got it) and get a pass or you get your registration suspended........get pulled driving with a suspended reg, you get arrested......

That being said.......my SuperDuke pipes are what my wife describes as "obnoxious". The warrior wears V&H bigshots w/baffles. All of my other bikes except one have stock pipes.

I agree with alot of people on here that there is a point of obnoxious. I run these v&h and they sound good. I leave out early mornings and i dont rev. Some people can be a$$holes and be extra loud and rev the **** out of it and i wonder what are you proving other than you are a d!ck.

Well I like loud-ish pipes. I love the sound of my warrior with Cobra Speedstar pipes and my Kawasaki with her Muzzy 4-1 with cf can, but I can't stand the racket created by Harleys with unbaffled pipes, or Japanese 4s with open pipes or gutted cans

Cobra Speedstar pipes? Do you mean a Cobra slip on with stock headers? I had that set up for awhile and it sounded cool.

I don't like them crazy loud - but recently, when filtering through miles of heavy traffic with the water heater on the bike, I felt really nervous. Looking forward to getting the big shots fitted. Loud is good!

I agree, there is no real evidence that loud pipes save lives, in fact maybe a few people have even lost their life for loud pipes, lol (at least made a lot of enemies) That being said I don't like stock pipes either. I like it when the rumble in my garage shakes the dishes in my kitchen cabinets, to me the deeper, the mellower, the better! I went through 3 or 4 pipes on my Warrior before I settled on a bas-tart Hardchrome set, just a tad bit louder and deeper than the V&H's. They were also the same length with quiet baffles after cutting them, thus the staggered appearance.
