I love mine. They look terrific, IMO, and very high quality finish full length heat shields.
They are very loud. I had a sideburner exhaust on the bike before the Freedom Performance, and the FP pipes are definitely louder, and more aggressive sounding. PLUS, they are even more aggressive sounding to a spectator than when you're riding. I recently let one of my friends ride my Raider (He's a big Harley guy, but he LOVED the Raider and is thinking of buying one), I couldn't believe how loud and raw sounding it was when he was riding off. Like, echo off buildings, sounding like a cammed muscle car. Very awesome sounding IMO.
