Installing Termi baffles cause smoother ride!?

Weird thing I came across yesterday:

After riding my 1199 S for almost a year with the termi slip ons and baffles
out, I decided to put them in yesterday. Even though I like loud exhaust as any
other one on here, I somehow got annoyed lately by the loud sound when touring longer distances (even though I wear ear plugs).

So I thought I would try to put the baffles in, even though I would probably remove them soon after I put them in.

After installing the baffles, I went for a longer ride... The sound is way more pleasant to the ears, BUT additionally I somehow noticed that the ride was way smoother (no surging, not much stuttering...). I first thought this was just subjective due to the noise level coming down, but after riding for 2 hours I would have to say that somehow the ride really has become more smooth.

Has anyone of you experienced this as well?
I think I'm going to leave the baffles in for a while now and keep on testing.

I found that it made the engine feel restricted, slower to spin up. Having said that I only did this for a short time two years ago and have no memory of the engine surging or not. I came straight back and took them out. That doesn't mean to say that it didn't feel smoother to you, glad it helped.
