Soundsational truly badass bike not only has to look like it has an attitude, it has to sound like it, too. Howard's Hog Horns' new Dynamic Duo air horns emit a whopping 130-plus dB. They feature a patented mounting system that mounts the trumpets and horn cover on one bracket. The air induction system works off a single manifold, which allows use of only one air hose, since twice the pressure equals more sound. All horns contain a removable back (sound unit) for cleaning and maintenance.

Big Ass Bags
It often happens that when you're packing for a trip you always find one last thing that you just can't squeeze in. Sumax's Big Ass Bags have 2 extra inches at the bottom and 3 extra inches at the top, resulting in 30-percent more cargo space than your average saddlebags. They'll not only accommodate that last thing but will also leave room for more. These composite-glass saddlebags are lightweight yet strong and durable, with a soft sprayed interior lining and a sandable primer-gelcoat-finished exterior. Rear paintable metal torque hinges hold the lid in place as you open or close the bag. Up front is a chrome lockable latch. The bags are double-sealed, making them watertight. They fit '97-up Harley FLT models.For more information, contact Sumax, (315) 768-1058, www.sumax.com.
