Exhaust location

Just a quick poll. It seems alot of upcoming bikes are tucking the pipes under the tail Ducati style. Which do you prefer?

I like the look of the undertail exhaust, especially on bikes with single-sided swing arms. IMO it just looks sweet!

Dual cans under the seat looks better then one.

I agree, undertails look so sweet, but unless you're only riding at a track you need some storage space. This is one of the primary reason I bought the gixxer over the cbr600rr. You could barely fit the owners manual in the cbr hutch.

Not to mention the 600RRs seat feels like sitting on a redbrick!

Heat is a factor to consider too.

Highmounts are the way to go best of both worlds IMO

I saw a girl get burned badly by a highmount. She was the passenger and put her leg down onto the pipe... It was her fault(for the most part) but it was still ugly!
