Some Megaphones For Your XR
Trust SuperTrapp to have pipes already for Harley-Davidson's brand new XR1200. SuperTrapp was an early flat track race sponsor and their years of flat track racing and testing have lead to their new race-inspired Megaphone System. The new system for the H-D XR 1200 is a brushed stainless steel, tunable, 2 into 2 system. It includes 2 - 20 disc packs. Adding discs allows the rider to increase horsepower, exhaust tone and flow; subtracting discs allows the rider to reduce sound and increase low-end torque. As a bonus, at only 15 lbs the Megaphone system chops off 21 lbs. from the stock configuration. SuperTrapp claims a 10% horsepower and torque gain through the mid-range when tested with 16 discs. The Megaphone System is listed at $985.00 and for more information visit www.SuperTrapp.com.

Pack Your Bags
Are you a ramblin' man? Even the lightest packer needs someplace to stash their stuff when rolling down Highway 41. Saddlemen has an all new saddlebag line, the Large Cruis'n Style. The all-new design for 2009 blends tradition with a modern, teardrop shape for a clean look that perfectly fits today's cruisers. Besides looking great, the streamlined shape allows stock turn signal locations to be used in most cases, eliminating some of the hassle of mounting other saddlebags. These bags include solid adjustable mounting brackets and hardware needed to fit most popular cruisers, including those with hard-to-fit forward mounted turn signals. Chrome saddlebag supports and mounting hardware are included, so there's nothing else to buy. These sharp bags are available for $279.95 MSRP from your Parts Unlimited (for metric) and Drag Specialties (for Harley) retailers, get more information at www.saddlemen.com.
