I haven't really had any hand burning issues, however, I do pay attention and make sure of where I put my hand when turning the key. It's actually farther away from the left pipe than the picture makes it appear to be. I don't have any closer pics of the left side with me, but, i'll post some when I get home Tuesday.Reaper said:They look really good, and I like the idea, but they do look very low, and how is it with the ignition key on the left, is it really close, hand burning time?, and they look really wide, im up in the air here, I would really love one pipe down each side, but I love the way my V&H pipes hide the swing arm. Could someone put up a close up pic of the left side please. Thanks guys, and ladys.
