Some bikes sound better then others
 
I just love the sound of a big V twin motor on song
Most production 'copies' just sound pants,
but that said some machines come very close.
Take this Harley and this Honda for example.
When you listen very carefully you can still pic out subtle differences.
Listen to the Harley a couple of times first to really get your ear in

Give me a triple triumph engine with nice pipes anytime, bloody gorgeous. Triumph really have captured their own sound with their motors. :D

rob 20-07-2006 08:22 AM

norton rotary racer.
the only sound to come close to a merlin/griffon in a power-climb.

Nik 20-07-2006 09:44 AM

I like vee-twin noises - me SandStorm sounds luvverly ... mind you, don't think me neighbours'll agree when I set off at 4am tomorrow morning to get to Bournemouth to me flight to Faro ... :eek: :D

2 stroke triples for me. sends shivers down me spine. oh hell now i've got the urge for another kh. and just when i was getting over my death wish :D

minxy 20-07-2006 11:57 AM

Loved the sound of the TR1 at full rip with straight thrus. And even the XJ900 divvy trike with downpipes straight into little turnouts. Anything loud really. And I love it when my slabby pops when the revs are dropping.

slob 20-07-2006 01:27 PM

my old divvy 600 with no pipes.. sounded painful :D :D

Bassman 20-07-2006 02:45 PM

Thats the best sounding Honda I think I've heard!! :D

InSanCen 20-07-2006 02:52 PM

got to agree with dracken1 here... a nice 2 stroke... (Not a bloody ped either!), is my fave noise.. after a tuned V8 of course...

Bosun 20-07-2006 03:06 PM

Yep.. haven't heard one in thirty years, but they really sounded as if they meant business....Arial square four 1000 used to sound like an old lorry if you left it running next to a block of flats... :D John

Taff 21-07-2006 03:54 AM

Me mates old BSA Rocket Three sounded pretty damn distinctive, as does a Trident, an old 'un.

baldyshinehead 21-07-2006 04:11 AM

Well i like the sound of my old straight 4 suzuki when its wound up and screaming for help :o

GreatBritishRob 21-07-2006 05:32 AM

A nicely tuned crisp big 4 stroke single can sound bloody gorgeous to and yep, a nice v4 2 stroke :D

Yoda 21-07-2006 08:25 AM

speedymax 21-07-2006 11:08 AM

A Vmax with race or open pipes, sounds like a V8 on heat! Pushes all the right buttons for me, although like Nik I'm not sure the neighbours agree.

MY fave was my old BSA 441 SS with reverse cone mega.... only it ad lost the 'reverse' cone bit... so just a mega then... luuuverly noise... (sighs wistfully)

ozzybiker 23-07-2006 05:52 PM

i have alwase had a soft spat for old 750/4 or Z900 full noise threw the oirngnal 4 into 4 pipes. i had a 750/4 with AMEN 4 into 2, 3-1/2" pipes. with out the baffelling in it was brilant. also poped and crackled nicley on over run.

also V4 honders with race pipes. ooooo. heard a VF1000R back in the day with 4-2 straight threw pipes. or have also heard triumph hinkleys and VFR800 with wulf under seat exhaust. now that was nice.

GreatBritishRob 23-07-2006 07:35 PM

My old speed triple (not the one i sold a few months back) had a 3 into 1 Sebring pipe (the one they used in the speed triple race series). Now that was nice but it would set off car alarms down the street i lived :D

IPC_Jules 25-07-2006 04:16 PM

Damn where did you get such a nice sounding honda... my cb125 dont sound as good as that, even when its running on both cylinders! ;)

seriously though i love the sound of most old brit bikes but especially my neighbours 750 bonnie chop with drag pipes and mate at works matchless 500, they rumble and you can feel them as well as hear them.
