So I can't wait to get cobra swepts and auto tuner (money issue like always) for my Stryker. Going from my Nighthawk 750 to the Stryker is a world of difference. I did appreciate my NH, but it was time to make the plunge on a bigger bike.

On the Nighthawk I have Vance and Hines 4 into 1 and LOVED the sound. Sure it wouldn't out run any modern bike, but people heard me coming and noticed me on the interstate. From watching YOUTUBE I really think that yamahas sound the bike with aftermarket exhaust. All the Raider, Warrior, and V Star 1300s have sounded great, IMO better than Harleys, but not a true chopper. Honda V twins to me didn't sound very good until the new 1300 engine that powers the Fury, Sabre, etc.

So today leaving work I noticed a guy had a last generation Sabre 1100 (correct me if that isn't the right displacement) and it sounded bad. Sure it was loud and I did noticed him, but instead of having that rumbling everyone associates with V twins this was more of a Lawn Boy gone wild. No bass whatsoever and all treble.

To each their own and it is good he is riding, but I like it that when I finally do get my exhaust it will sound like a real motorcycle. Not like a four wheeler (somone did think that when I pulled up outside) or a Snapper that has attitude.

I really don't mean to knock other bikes, but I feel Yamaha knows what they are doing.
