Laverda Jota.......

The earlier models had a 180' crank if memory serves. Much nicer growl than the 120' that came out later. Or was it the other way around ??

The original Kawi 500 Mach III had a spooky wild wail from the airbox when one rode the throttle. In combo with the two stroke triple it was distinctive fer sure.

Norton Commando "rapp offs" as we called them were cool as well. Used to be able to tell what a guy was riding before you saw him.

Shit I'm old.

A nod of approval with your above comments. My Laverda's original exhaust are totally hollow. Actually, the stock exhaust on both my Nortons are baffle free tubes as well.


Stock exhaust sound?? Gosh, I remember my early '78 CBX 6 banger sounded glorious rolling through the gears.

And lately, I just love the sound of that cross-plank Yamaha R1 engine, like a little pissed off V8.

What makes my hair,or whats left of it stand on end,goose pimples also appear,is the glorious sound of the high pitched whistle that constantly emanates from the fuel pump inside all K series and later versions of BMW's.Its a close section to the high pitched whining that emanates from there owners.Then followed a close third by fingernails on a blackboard.

Ducati (pick one, it doesn't matter) with the factory optional termignoni carbon fiber cans, full race exhaust system. Even just the termignoni slip-ons are awesome. You should hear my wife's 2012 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO with the twin termignoni carbon fiber cans, no baffles. Pure sex on wheels...

When you say full race I think you're pushing the definition of stock exhaust, even if it is a factory option. I agree Ducs sound great, used to have a Monster. I truly do think my Goose sounds better stock than my Monster did stock though. I replaced the Monster's stock exhaust with SuperTrapps available through Ducati Performance. I have felt no need to replace the Breva's stockers.

Cross-plane Yamaha R1? Or one of the spicier Triumph triples ( I had a Sprint RS that sounded pretty good) with optional Triumph can, which must count as stock 'cos it's a manufacturer's fitment

Best stock sound came out of those 'baloney' mufflers on mid-to-late 60's triumphs. Had a girlfriend back then who once said that the loneliest sound she ever heard was my triumph (after date nite) leaving without her.

That is not to say that other bikes did not have their charms. I really do like the quiet of stock Wings and Beemers. Being able to sneak up on pedestrians and bicyclists can be a lot of fun. Getting into and out of my neighborhood without waking anyone up in the quiet of a summers nite when everyone has there screens open has a lot of charm too.

BITD, I had a triumph with TT pipes on it. After 3 days of that, they came off. My cross-corner neighbor currently has straight pipes on his sportster. I can hear that thing fire up while watching TV in my basement with the house shut up and the AC running. I am amazed that the guy right next door to him and the guy right across the street from his garage haven't got together and burned his garage down.
