    Slow down!
    I've had Emgo silencers on my R90/6 8 years, & even with the 1000cc Siebenrock kit they are not much louder around town than the stock were.
    They do pipe up much like a souped up '77 Bonneville (with stock exhaust) did, once the throttle was opened up.

    exaust note

    yes Bill I agree, with you, I guess I have been riding the R1100rt bought a couple of years ago, and my son is riding the airhead so I am sometimes following the airhead and notice the roar more,but I have followed a lot of airheads over the last 50 years and never heard such a blast, even with my mufflers drilled out to release a little more power, I knew the Emgo,s were loud for years but the price was right, anyhow have them now my son is going to takeover the R1100 and I will go back to the R100s/rt ear plugs help greatly, thanks for answering Jimmy
