One of the first mods I did to my brand new VTX1300 was of course new pipes. I don't even remember the brand now but they look great and sounded just how I wanted. That was 10 years ago. Today I rode it without ear plugs for the first time and I have to admit I didn't care for the loud sound anymore. May be I am getting old or just outgrown it. What's the point? I now prefer something a purposeful purr. Did not like the stock pipes on looks alone so I am not going back to them. Do they make aftermarket quiet pipes?
