The sound of your bike or car?

Maybe Im dumb but I'd like to hear what everyones bike/car sounds like. lol Link a vid of it running and revving. Just an idea and maybe its been done already.

Its nice to see/hear diff bike/exhaust combos.

This video is a few months old. I have smaller bar-end mirrors and new tires now but, still sounds the same. Also I've replaced my Ignition switch as well, as you can see in the video it had a short awhile ago heh.

Haha, I'm actually leaning more towards a Cafe finished product rather then a Drag-bike, Regardless that is one sweet KZ drag-bike.

She actually doesn't start sounding like a Modern crotch rocket til around 6K, Cruising at 60 in 5th is 4K and 80 in 5th is 5K, It's very unique to hear it go from a low rumble to a high crotch rocket whine, when you run the gears through to 8K--Don't know what the rev limiter's at because I've never hit it, Redline starts at 9 though, haha.

grab your camera and go into your garage and rec your . This would be one of a way to sell a bike, thats for sure. If a bike in the sell section had a vid of it, Id be sold by the clear sound of the engine.

I own an Accord and used to have a GSX-R 600. Any time I hear one of these crank, it's an unmistakable sound, I have to turn and look!
