Default 2013 Dyna Wide Glide Exhaust?

Hey everyone! Gonna be purchasing a new Wide Glide in about a month when I finish school and will be imediatelly changing out the stock exhaust. Been doing a lot of research on the various types and I think I have narrowed it down to Bassani Pro Streets, Freedom Declaration Turnouts, & the Samson Legend Series Street Sweepers. Kind of trying to stay away from V&H because they seem to be the norm. So whats everyones opinion on sound and performance of these pipes? Any input on other types would be greatly appreciated also. BTW Bassani is what I am currently leaning to.
Thanks!

Not sure on how each sounds but I definitely love the look of the bassani. If I were to change my pipes that's what I would go to.

I also dig the bassani looks. Consider a 2-1 pipe if you want the best performance out of your pipes. there are a million threads you can look through about this. Youtube is your friend if you want to hear some pipes as well. Good luck.

I have a 13 WG in vivid black... I went through this same torment. Picking an exhaust was such a torturous difficult decision for me. Soooo many options like black/chrome, length, brand, sound, performance, fit/finish, reviews... the list went on and on.

I wish you luck on this one. In the end I decided I preferred looks and sound more then performance. I won't be running any drag races so i'm okay with not having the fastest bike on the street.

I choose Exotic Choppers Fuelies because I thought they looked and sounded BA and they aren't a dime a dozen like short shots. http://s135.photobucket.com/user/far...a/ec2.jpg.html

I'm still undecided if i'll PC the shields black and murder the bike out

I had a set of Freedom Performance exhaust and they started rusting in a few months. I would stick with Bassani or Samson

Have heard alot of horror stories about Samson. I planned on going with a set of those street sweepers then heard alot about ruptured head pipes and saw how they blued so easily. Of your choices Bassani's sound like the winner...

Since you do not want "normal" ... the stock pipes make a great platform for custom pipes. You have lots of ways to build custom 2-1 pipes, easy to change the sound with simple baffle mods.
I am getting ready to make my 3rd set using the tommy gun head pipes, just trying to decide on the final look. That is what you see in my sig pic now

Thanks for the input dudes! Bassani is lookin tough to beat. I would like a 2-1 pipe but I'm not really a fan of how far most of them go back. 8541hog I would really like to be able to make my own exhaust but as of now I'm not really skilled enough to do so. Hopefully in time I will be though! Also does anyone know if the Bassani Pro Streets would even fit the 2013 wide glide? It says they would fit a 2012 but nothing on 2013.

I almost purchased Bassani before getting the exotic choppers pipes. Reviews and exhaust sounded good... if I went 2 into 1 route that would have been my choice
