Well I decided to make the change. I sold my 00' Road King for a 03' Road Star and about 9k in cash, I don't miss it one bit (well maybe the roar). Long nights of breaking it down to frequently and vibration so bad I couldn't close my hand for days at a time. Well I'm on the Metric side now and two weeks into I couldn't be happier.
Oh does anyone have some recommendations for some roaring pipes?

Welcome to the forum and the metric owners :)
Corbras and vance & hines are real common and liked pipes.

Now I understand why all those sportster riders have what looks like envy in their eyes when they wave.

If you can find someone with a full set of Jardines, take a listen. I absolutely love the tone over the others,
and I'm usually way over-the-top louder in a side-by-side comparison.

They actually sound "reasonably" quiet, soft and deep @ idle and tnt-db-level when you crack on them.
I actually have to wear earplugs with a 3/4 lid @ four-lane speeds to keep from damaging my hearing.
