I prefer a tuned sound, not excessively loud or droning. Stupid loud is abrasive and annoying.

I have V&H Baggers on my 1600 Nomad and yes, it's louder than stock but I don't consider it obnoxious. More of a deep rumble without the annoying tinny "blat" you get with no baffles or other DIY exhaust mods. I can ride all day on the highway and it doesn't bother me, plus I have the added safety of being a little louder so someone is more likely to "notice" me before cutting into my lane. Agree or disagree, sound is another type of high vis riding.

I’m not a fan of loud pipes. I want mine as quiet as possible.

That said it’s all just personal preference.
