Arrow 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.

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
