anyone running zoomies out there?

i was looking at a set of sanderson zoomies with baffles for my 392. they look way cool, but i was more than a little concerned about how driver and nieghbourhood friendly they are. do any of you guys have any experiences, good or bad, with baffled zoomies?

They aren't as noisy as you would think.

I have a pair on my 32. They are noisy and I didn't like the gas fumes rolling through the windows. My wife would not ride with me.
I changed out to block hugger Sandersons with the Hearthrob mufflers.

I have them on my 27. I have found them noisy and they have a single Harley baffle in each pipe. I would put in a photo but I can't figure out how. What I was thinking was to double up each tube. I don't have any glass other than the windshield and only a half a roof so fumes are not a problem. Click on or copy and paste

fumes are an issue for sure, my better half wouldn't like it either.
"my" fumes are enough for her already
