True. If he had good old no baffle pipes, the ones that curve upward then dump pointing down on the right side the sound waves would have pushed the bike back upright. I know it's true because I just typed it.

PS - I have a set of, uh, murdered out pipes like that for sell, I'll let them go for only $1000 each!

That's fkn awful!

Not only are you on the wrong side of the road, but you're also going backwards!! And how can you see your mirror from that head angle?

Other than that, looks ok.
