Oh yes -- the Termignonis are expensive and nowadays there are several
knock-offs which look equally nice, if not nicer and for
less dough (I often drool over the oval Two Brothers carbon-fibers).
But at the time I got my bike it was only the Termignonis
and the Stayintunes to choose from (at the high-end) -- the Stayintunes
with its metallic tinny sound, while the Termignonis has a deep grunty
sound, (they also weigh less than the metal Stayintunes). I've
now run my Termignonis for almost 70.000 miles (112K.km), and they are getting
more "free-breathing" by the day, due to the entire glass fiber packing
being almost burned out. However, this fits perfectly my Stage-3 jetting
and its open air-box (see Stage-3 Jetting).
Moreover, those pipes make
my bike the most beautiful sounding vehicle out there..(eh-hum.. well,
my neighbors might disagree). In any case, many thanks to Johan Ekstrom
at Nordic Motors who
did the brilliant weld-job for those super high
swipe pipes -- just too generous & cool of him. As for the nice
stickers; I take my hat off to David Palm, who's one of those who
ain't plagued by any selfishness or greed.
