Default Taylormade Exhaust?

Anybody out there running a Taylormade exhaust? Thoughts? Comments?

I like the looks. I really don't need the few extra HP.

Here are a few of mine. I've since added a few more things since these pics. I love the look and sound of my TM. I had some initial fitting problems that turned out to be mostly my fault and Paul Taylor personally called me and helped me work things out. How's that for customer service from the owner of the company?

heres some pics of mine. Ive had fitment problems since i got it. my mechanic has spoken to paul taylor several times and cant get it to fit right. said he wasnt very helpful at all its the exhausts problem. made poorly, which is insane seeing how expensive it is. as far as performance i believe its definately on the lower end, its more for looks, not much performance gain at all.
as far as sound goes: the quality of the sound is great, it is a very deep throaty sound, but it is not loud at all! its a little louder than stock.. again this pisses me off, if im paying $800 for an exhaust on a high performance bike i want it to sound mean, not quiet like a scooter... to be fair a lot of ppl say its just loud enough or too loud but in my opinion its not loud at all.. to give factual reference like i said it is a little louder than the stock exhaust.
If I could figure out a way to put the two bros under the bike and have the clean look of the TM thats what i would do, the only reason im sticking with it is because i dont know of any other exhaust that has the same look which is exactly what i want, so im sacrificing sound for it...
If would like a loud exhaust and dont mind the look of a can sticking out def dont go with the TM!

The TM shines at improving lower and midrange performance, which is perfect for street use. It is not the king when running on a track at 12-13k rpm but only by a few hp.

As far as loud, my TM is loud enough that in the morning I push my bike out of the garage at 5:30 a.m. and coast about 1/8 mile down the road before starting it so I won't annoy the neighbors. It's plenty loud but not as loud as a 2bros.

On a recent group ride someone came up next to me who had a 2bros and that thing was obnoxiously loud. I can't imagine anyone wanting that kind of racket on their bike all the time, although I guess the Harley riders with straight pipes seem to like it.
