I’ve been wearing a basic pair of steel toed work boots and was looking for something with better ankle protection but would still be comfortable enough to wear during the day at work so I wouldn’t need to change shoes. The Tour Master Solution 2.0 boots have fit the bill nicely. They are a boot so they are a little stiffer to walk in and don’t get the best ventilation since they’re a tall, leather, waterproof boot. I’m used to wearing cowboy boots to work and they have basically the same feel. They weren’t bad walking around in all day and I would take them off for a few minutes over lunch to let my feet cool off but even on the days when I wore them all day my feet were warm but not sweating. The foot-bed is basically flat so I did add a basic insole for a little more comfort. I normally wear a 10 ½ wide or 11 depending on the shoe so I went with the 11 wide. The boot fits great. Snugger in the heal area, just like a cowboy boot, but not too tight and the wider toe box has a great amount of room even after putting in the insoles. Being all black they blend in nicely at work and I feel I now have a good amount of protection when I’m riding. For the money spent they are a good solid boot with a calmer look that can fit in just about anywhere and are comfortable on and off the bike.

Vance Hines Powershots Exhaust for Yamaha Roadstar XV1600 1999-2003 XV17000 2004-2007 Powershots feature two 2 1/2 muffler bodies, dual power chambers, a single chrome 360 heat shield and unique dual-staggered, twin-layered slash-cut end tips. Hidden under the heat shields, the Power Chamber crossover system uses the volume of both mufflers to improve scavenging of each cylinder providing more efficient combustion for horsepower and torque. The end product is music to the throttle, and to the ears. Baffles, mounting hardware and easy-to-understand instructions are included for a hassle-free, perfect fit every time. Made in the USA.

I have a 2004 Yamaha RoadStar Silverado. I wanted to get a new set of pipes that would give me more room for the larger saddlebags I'd installed and looked better than the stock pipes. I wasn't looking for a louder sound but was hoping for a deeper rumble. After a lot of research I decided on the V&H PowerShots. I've been overly surprised and pleased with my decision.
The PowerShots have a fantastic visual line on the side of the bike with a 2 - 3 inch gap between the saddlebags. They also sit even with the bottom frame so I'm still able to scrape the footplates without scratching the pipes. I had them installed at my local dealer and they tuned it on the Dyno. This is where I got my biggest surprise. My gas mileage went up along with a noticeable increase in power. I usually run down until I have to kick on the reserve before getting gas and have been getting 35 – 37 mpg. After three tanks doing the same thing I’m now at 45 – 47 mpg!!!
They are louder than the stock pipes, on par with a stock Harley based on ones I hear in my neighborhood. V&H doesn’t have a set of quiet baffles for the PowerShots but I did find some at SmartPartz. http://www.smartpartz.com/SPZVHPS.html These dropped the volume down a bit so it’s not such a shock to the neighbors when I leave for work at 5:30am.
Overall an incredible product.
