Hi Vash-

I own and ride an inline-four but prefer the sensory experience of a v-twin.

I feel like a ricer voting for the inlines, but for some reason I just like the sound.

Never ridden a twin, dammit.

But mine's a V! Whatever the hell that's worth.

Hi All-

It's that off-cadence rumble that I find so attractive.

I think I prefer the sound of a twin at idle, but at WOT inline is so much more menacing....


Never heard a tripple... dont those things sound like a tractor?

Hi Vash-

WOT? As in Way Out There or something like that? Couldn't place the acronym...but it is still morningtime and I haven't had my coffee yet.
