Anyone running Highway Hawk short shots?

Im considering these pipes for my bike, any ideas on how loud they are?
Also as a second thought - would they affect a passengers hearing worse as they seem to be in front of where they would sit?

I think they would be as loud as hell for both the rider and passenger .... I would also suggest that after market baffels might not fit if you find them way to loud, the pipes look kinda short to add any after the fact. Ear plugs might work though.

As i flipped into 5th, i couldnt remember a damn thing she said

i think you will loose power and torque with those pipes big time.... would probably be great for a bike with MAJOR engine mods in drag racing....

Yeah, I dont think mrs DUB would be too pleased.

The HH fat pipes are lookin good - I want straight pipes and the V+H ones seems to have an apparent outer skin which I dont like.

Not only would it be loud for you, and very loud for your passenger, but you'd both likely reek of exhaust at the end of a ride, particularly one with lots of stops and starts.
