Video's With Pipe Sounds

I want to change the pipe more for sound than performance. However bikes in general run better/cooler when they are opened up. Stock these bikes run lean as it is.
I remember several videos done to document exhaust notes on different exhaust systems....sorry no references or fact I believe that a couple were on R1200S forum...Akra did have a "unique" note! [besides the sound of dollars burning ]...if you are really interested it will take time but searches on forums will get you at least some idea of how each system sounds..

Now how about a set of Smitty's on a flat-head motor! Or the DOHC 6 cyl Jags...or...
