I once had the "pleasure" of walking behind a straight piped Boss Hoss as the fecal-brained owner coaxed it to life. I nearly ducked for cover, the thing was louder than shotgun. The jackhole had this stupid grin on his face, knowing he just pissed off a couple hundred people. My ears were ringing for a while and all afternoon I got looks of disdain because I happened to be carrying my helmet.

The sound of the bits of valve rattling out of the tailpipe of a self-destructing Magna.

Certainly not all, but alot of the boxer engined beemers sound like a sewing machine to me. I'm not a huge fan of stunt canned inline 4s either.



The best? Either an air cooled Duc with Termis or Remus cans (or virtually any of the 90 degree twins), any of the three cylinder beasts at full wail with a race can, or a narrow angle V with just enough baffling to keep it from being obnoxiously loud.

I had a similar experience, but from a group of riders on the Boss Hoss. Their noise level was actually painful.

Worst ever was a Suzuki GT750 two stoke set up for dirt drag racing. That thing a full throttle would make me physically nauseous.

Hmmm.



Least fav: ST1300 with stock exhast and any oil-head R bike with stock exhaust (they sound really, really, really bad)



Favs: Norton Rotary, non-VTEC VFR with aftermarket pipe/can, and Triumph 3-cyl with aftermarket pipe/can

Best: Kaw Z1 with an original Kerker pipe (open, as when drag racing). Worst: CBx with six straight pipes, or any pre-mid-60s two-stroke street bikes.

I have to second the BMW. An oilhead going up Parley's Canyon wide open sounds like a string of blatting f@rts.
