Way too many great bikes choose from.....

I love the 6, 4 , 3 , 2 , 1 cylinder bikes!..............

The very first time I heard a 70s Kaw 900 with a Kerker go absolutely screaming past my parents house at about 1:00 am scared the hale outa me! :OMG: Loved that sound! I knew I'd get one, one day. But not before the '75 Kaw 500 triple........with Dencos!.... I somehow survived both those bikes :Roost:

Love the sound of just about every bike.........from old slow revving singles to the mega red lining slipper pistoned race bikes...............

I even love the sound of a no cylindered bike! I saw the JPS Nortons at Brands Hatch in the early 90s. Trevor Nation and Steve Spray put on a great show! :2_thumbsup:

I'm a big fan of the V-4 Honda engines, my most recent and dearly missed was an '07 VFR800 and it sounded very nice with Laser Exhaust. It also looked pretty badass with the four pipes coming out the back. Damn I miss that bike.

No videos of mine, but here's a few videos of VFR800s with different exhausts.

The Delvic exhaust actually sounds a bit better, almost like a hotrod V-8 at idle, but it didn't look as cool as the Laser so I went with the looks since they still sounded good. Here's a good sample of the Delvic on a Red/White/Blue like I had:

And the Staintunes exhaust. Damn I miss that bike...

I have to second the Honda V4. I've had a couple of VFR's . My favorite still is the sound of my 95 with full Two Brothers exhaust. Music to my ears.

The GT550 Indy! My first serious street bike (& my first broken ribs), 40 years ago. To this day, that triple two-stroke sound teleports me...
Thank you for sharing that :2_thumbsup:

i had one of those, amazing noise come from that engine and they are amazing motorcycles absolutely bullet proof. i actually did a track day with a guy with a supercharged one, i remebered seeing this guy in the pits and thinking what the hell is that doing there and sure enough here i come lapping him, passed him in turn 17 coming onto the straight with my daytona 675......go about 1/3 of the way down the straight away and he came blowing around me. so i went to investigate in the pits ans sure enought it was a VFR800 V-Tec with a sueprcharger.
