Anyone have Two Bros Exhaust on their bike in San Diego or Socal?

I have a 2013 FJR with an Akrapovic exhaust and want something louder with more rumble. My exhaust only sounds good to me when I rev it standing still. When I get on it on the freeway all I hear is the engine/drivetrain and wind. Taking off from a stop light I can only hear the exhaust a slight amount. My hearing is poor so that may be a factor.

Some people complain the TB is too loud and obnoxious but I want to hear it in person. Two concerns I have are droning at 75-80 mph and excessive noise for a passenger.

I'm not asking for a debate about the TB exhaust, I just want to hear it in person. AND if someone is willing to swap the TB exhaust on my bike for a 30 min ride I'll gladly buy lunch :-). If I do end up getting them I'll get the carbon cans, I love the way they match the black wheels.

Iím not local to you, but I feel your pain. Iíve had Akra pipes before, and while the craftsmanship is top notch, they sound, well, blah.

I have a Two Brothers on my bike now, and itís great. Nice and deep at idle, with a good sound at speed. You wonít regret getting these pipes.

When I was a track-a-holic on my R1 & R6, I used to think that the FJR was an old man's bike. Then I got one and absolutely love it. Hey...wait a minute!

I had two broís on a 06 hayabusa before and they seem a little louder on my Ď16 FJR. Iím thinking my busa pipes were slightly longer so Iím going to toss in the power tips and hopefully itís not too neutered. The rumble from two broís is awesome. Like a muscle bike.

Busa had aluminum cans and the FJR has carbons, not sure if that is a factor either.
