Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

I've got the Samson true duals on the Bagger, Thunderheader on the Fatboy, and Yoshimura on the Busa... Those Rineharts weren't available for my Bagger at the time.

I had SE slashcut slipons, and liked them but went to the White Brothers E-series setup more for performance then looks... helps out the bottom end a lot. I never got it re-dynoed but you could feel the difference big time. Actually it was the Dyno guy at Illiniois HD that recommended them as well as the guy at Ultima

On reccomendations I almost went with the Vance and hines propipe to get the most power out of it, but I coulkdnt get past the fact that I wanted duals being a bagger and all. The rineharts were the best perfoming true duals out there so I went with those, plus I love the look and sound. I didnt gain all the power I could of, but I guess I had to sacrifice a bit for asthetics.

I hear ya Tony, I went through the same thing for the longest time... it just seems like there should be 2 pipes on a bagger.....

I kept saying there can't be that much of a difference I'll just deal with it.. but They wore me down.....and they were right

I still think it looks nicer with the 2 pipes though.

those bub rhinehardts are especially nice looking...
I noticed them from the first time I looked at the pics of your bike.

If you ever do go to change to another pipe.. talk to the dyno guy over at Illinois before you buy some he really has some good experience and actually sees the number differences that they make . I can't remember his name at the moment.. I've got it written down somewhere.

I still have the Sampson "rolled thunder" on. There just slip ons with stock header. They sound good.

Thx Tony...

Yes they are! If I ever get a new Road King or if/when I replace the tires they will be black walls. I also am a little tired of spokes as well. Again if/when I trade in this bike for another Road King, I am going to go with the Custom or the standard Road King with the cast aluminum wheels. Much easier to keep clean!
