  1. Chatter
    I've just gotta post this because I love the noise it makes. Somehow, I don't think I could handle exhausts that loud, and I'm sure my neighbours would hate me more than they already do!! It's odd, but it sort of sounds like a V4 to me at times during the vid, which it obviously isn't, but...
