F800GS aftermarket exhaust

So anybody dropped the coin to get an aftermarket exhaust for the new F800GS? The dealer had a GS with a Remus hexacone slip on and pulled it out for me to hear. Wow! You want a deeper, meaner growl..... I almost dropped 8 bills right then and there.

Aftermarket Exhaust

Yes, please! I JUST got my new 800 GS and am absolutely in love right now (it sleeps in my room at the foot of my bed). So now I've got farkle-itis. Exhaust is pretty high on my list. I put Remus on my R1150R and it was the best sounding system I could find back in '03. I wouldn't have a problem getting another Remus, but should I be looking at Akra? Remus is a little cheaper, but sound is where it's at for me. Anyone heard the two side by side?
P.S. Is it wierd that I kind of enjoy the stock exhaust? Just a tiny rumble with stealthy-quiet cruising? I can't believe I'm saying this.

Never out of the box/just decided to not use it. If it doesn't sell, I'll install it in a month or so. How are the keys these days?

That seems a little counterproductive doesn't it?

Increase motor performance while decreasing ground clearance. So it sounds good while you're stuck on a rock?

......Jus havin fun man, but really how much did you have to lower it?

I've been eyeballin' the Leo Vince slip on. Anyone have that yet? I've always like Leo's for off road/MX bikes. Price wise they're hard to beat, too.

I'm about to do the same thing. I wonder if I'll have to alter my BMW bash plate?

How much bigger are these headers?

Talking remus

i just order the hex cone remus for the f800 and only paid shipped to me house only 500. i dont know why you would pay so much i got it at bici.uk it will take a while to get here from the uk but well worth the wait for the 300 dollar savings.
