Talking 950 Tourer with Vance & Hines Sound Gnarly

Installed a Vance & Hines Slip on muffler to surprise the wife when she gets home.
After putting pipes on my Road Star, she wanted a little sound for her 2012 V Star 950.
I have always been a fan of their products and this one did not disappoint me. It sounds pissed off and ready to fight

Let me know how she likes the sound. I ride a 2011 950, am also a lady, and have wondered what difference it makes in the sound. Always looking for more awesomeness!!!!!!

I put the Vance and Hines slash cut slip on exhaust on my 2009 vstar 950. I was really happy for the price, hope it gets better as it breaks in.

She loves the sound. I out the slash cut on it.
Actually sounds more aggressive in person.

you should make one yourself. like recording the pipes as you rev them up in a parking lot or driveway so we can get a better sense of the sound. the audio sounded muffled in that clip.

Got the short shots on my 650, it is loud, my bud on his 1100 said he cannot ride behind me as he cannot hear his bike to shift. I love the sound of them, but also have no doubt everyone hears me and knows i am around
