18 Phantom w/ Cobra Exhaust

Recently purchased 18 Shadow Phantom. Couldn't live with the low tone of the stock exhaust. Went with the Cobra Slashdown Exhaust and wow night and day difference! I actually feel good cruising around hearing the sound of the exhaust rumble through the gears. Even just sitting at the stop light. Sounds great! worth every penny! Next is cleaning up that rear end ugly plastic license plate holder thing. Lost some low end torque but the top end feels a bit quicker.

Wow ,moose and I worry about the bear and deer here but any one of the three and it would be bad for us on a motorcycle,I hit deer with a car and a truck before and wrecked the car then watched the deer get up and RUN away.The one I hit with the truck with a snow plow mount on it, went unhurt(the truck not sure about the deer) it went over the cab into the bed of the truck,while I was looking at it not moveing it suddenly jumped out of the truck and ran back into the woods.I got my first deer with a 350 automatic and the second with a 350 four speed.

Lol Steve! A guy I worked with hit one with his car on his way to work (gravel backroad). He jumped out of his vehicle, pulled out a knife and put the deer out of his misery. Heck of a way to start your day!

Rocked out on The Grand Old Lady for a funeral run today. She's been mine since July 2003. I'm the 4th owner and have put most of the 41K miles on her.
