A Classic with the bologna pipes with the "catalyzer" off is a blend between the two sounds; clearly evident on the video. My Classic Tourer didn't have the growl that is so often referred to; now, with the cat on the shelf the growl is there, with bolony muffs.
I'd be curious to know the HP increase on mine. It does get off the line and down the road more than when dragging cat the along. That may be my own adjustments (seat of the pants feel has grown). < punctuation heretic. The Tribal has a "20 hp increase" over the Classic. I wouldn't have thought so
The point being? "Heavily accessorized" bikes, even more so when fitted with "leather panniers", tend to be more compliant with noise regulations than naked bikes . Some universal truth in that, no doubt. Worth 5' of footage? Am not sure
That's one point made. Another clear point was the 20 ponies. I'm sure I heard that. There was just a wee small third point made, and that was the sound comparison. I was simply throwing in my own comparison. For anyone that could give a dime. Another analytical point was the range of variances.
"...noise regulations..." What's that?? G..D..n trains, jake brakes, coasters, loud mouthed dogs and potty mouthed brats in the neighborhood and them **** liberals (ox-morons) and other social engineers want to dictate the pipes on my ride.
