Description: The 2005 Yamaha Royal Star Venture came with the custom-wrapped Barons pipes you see in this shot, but also came with factory pipes (much quieter). I've since put the factory pipes back on so that Eileen and I can hear each other on the intercom while riding. Riding to Indianapolis and back also was nearly deafening. I've had people tell me these pipes are "obnoxiously loud". I plan to rewrap them to increase the amount of material because they really sound nice at idle and probably will sound great if not quite so loud.
