"Thumpers" are big singles (Buell Blast, BMW 650 and such)
Double Thumper?

Phallus?*

* I worked in a bicycle shop. I had a Puch 2 speed moped, the owner had an Electra-Glide . "You wouldn't know what it's like to have so much power!"
I replied with: "Yes I do know. That's why I need the clearance a step-through frame provides!"

Well, that's what happens when you buy a used bike. The previous owner installed a "Screaming Eagle" exhaust system on it. I would like the bike a little quieter, but I'm going to focus my mods on safety items first, such as LED turn signals, extra loud horn, engine guard bars, etc.

I don't think stock mufflers are reasonably quiet either.

I think my best (cheap) option is to run into someone with a similar super glide at a rally who really likes the sound of my bike, and offer to trade pipes. I really like the looks of the pipes on it now though. For some of the Screaming Eagle pipes you can change out the baffles. I may look into that.

Nice Harley. Congrats.

You should just name it "Bertha" and ride the hell out of her.

HC: stock Hardleys are reasonably quiet... for about the first 10 minutes of ownership. Then the pipes come off.

There must be a mountain of Hardley, pickup, and ricer stock mufflers somewhere the size of Manhattan.

Yeah, I would like to make it quieter, but I just haven't had the time to look at it closely. Some mufflers you can switch out the baffles inside to change the sound. If I can do that with these pipes it won't cost much.

And get yourself some good hot weather gear, I just got a pair of Motoboss Airspeed4 mesh armoured pants from Cyclegear in Orlando. Nice fit and they flow!
