Stock Ultra Classic is o.k. Kinda miss that sound on the Wing but I'll probably just deal with it.

I like wings rather on the quieter side, but all others a nice rich & throaty rumble. I've found loud exhausts, like being buffeted by wind, along with engine and general road noise lead to excessive fatigue setting in when you're burning some miles. At least that's worked with me, though take that with a grain of salt because I'm just getting back into riding after a twenty year break(burnout).
I'm going back on my trusty old GL1000 which is a far cry from what the vast majority of you folks ride, but she was my first highway love and I guess shall remain so until death us do part.

Love the sound of my Wing. As someone already mentioned "Sewing Machine". That said agree with everyone about if it is loud I am not following it.

I'm just new to the whole goldwing thing but actually what has brought me from Harley to goldwing is the fact that I can still ride the bike and hear my music which is much more important to me than loud pipes. But I would like a little rumble in a goldwing if it's possible but I don't know which exhaust would provide that.

Not fond of loud pipes. To me it seems inconsiderate, like driving your car with your music cranked up so loud that you have to open your windows to let out some of pressure.
