Well its winter in N.Y. and time to do some upgrades to my 2003 heritage. Putting the bike up on a lift to put origonal springs back in the front forks because it was lowered when I got the bike. Figured it was a good time to do the stage 1. I'm wrestling with myself as to which pipes to put on. I'm between the V & H big shot longs or the true duals (BUB 7 or V & H). I'm leaning towards the Big Shots. I'm not crazy about the way the left side pipe looks where it comes out from behind the engine and hear it gets real hot. They both have pros and cons. I have harley slip ons but its so quiet I've heard jap bikes that are louder. I'm looking for loud but not so much that I have to wear ear plugs on long rides. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. I know I have to make the decision but it's nice to hear what other people think. Wondering what you all think regarding which pipes look best on a heritage and sounds best. Thanks and Happy New Year to all. I love this forum.
