I didn't need my neighborhood to know when I came home at night, so I always appreciated the quietness of the Goldwing. Now I have a Corvette with an aftermarket exhaust and they know. LOL
I put cobra exhaust on my 2012. Its not too loud on the hwy and has a nice rumble at idle I really like 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.
