Sounds real nice. What kind of exhaust do you have on it ?

Sounds like you were just loafing along...................looked fast enough though. I wonder if that's what my 1500 Classic FI sounds like?

Those are Bub Ent Big Willys with 2 1/2" slashcut tips. They are
no longer available for the 1500 Classic. Might see them now and
then on Ebay. I got those used in 2002.

You can see those pipes in pictures of my bike on my blog at:

Right, was pretty much loafing along as that's a rural secondary
road with a low to medium speed curve by the camera. It was a
slower curve than I first anticipated so was a little surprised as
I went through. No dry run beforehand.

The exhaust system you use will play a role as to exactly how it
sounds. I think shooting a video gives you a good idea as to how
your bike sounds going by. The only other way is to let someone
else ride your bike as you listen to it.

My friend stopped the video a little too soon as I told him to just
wait 2 seconds after I passed. Should've waited about 5 seconds.

BTW, it definitely helps when you use a tripod for the camera. 8)
