Without meaning to troll, one reason for which I like the stock exhaust is that it has the ideal size and shape for the bike.
The smaller and/or thinner exhausts tend to look a little out of scale (in comparison to the huge volume of the bike).
A carbon exhaust in the exact same shape with the oem would look really cool I think...
Apart from that, the sound of the oem one is über-cool to go through the hassle of changing it. But each to their own I guess.

I dont think that was a troll. I fully agree that all things has personal bias, and people are not the same. What really matters is not what other say about your bike, but what you like. Lots like the sound from the aftermarket pipe I had on my bike...... I did not.... It really is a simple as that..... Consider it a blessing. A rare trait if you will, to enjoy a stock part....

Without being a smart arse as in my post above, I fitted a Leo Vince Carbon muffler to my '09 800GS for this reason- I didn't like the lop sided look of any of the pannier systems available for the bike. In my research I found a guy here in Oz who builds panniers for a generic fit, then I found someone in the US who had frames availble to suit smaller, slimmer aftermarket pipes. With all this fitted to the bike, I now have panniers that sit simmetrically from the centre line of the bike. Looks much neater and sleeker. The added bonus is the bike now sounds like a bike should without being offensive and it sure puts a smile on my face when I twist the loud handle.

There is a South Park episode that addresses this.
