And the morning conversation 2 houses down after the baby wakes up at 630 and the wife wakes up the husband and says our a$$hole neighbor just woke up the baby again with that stupid loud bike. . Yeah honey, but it's not brappy loud. -death stare.

I'm joking but you just know that conversation had happened somewhere.
😂 I have no doubts I just became "that guy." I thought seriously about pushing it to the front of the neighborhood. It's about a quarter mile but decided to just fire it up and idle to the corner and stay off the throttle best I could. I'm sure I got a few comments. The litmus test for me was my wife was still in bed and I knew if I had a text from her saying "WTF did you do to your motorcycle" I knew I was switching back. I got no angry text so I'm proceeding with caution, lol.

As decibels increase they get more intense. 60 to 80 is less of a change than 100 to 110. Kind of a problem for me. I work late, and get home no earlier then 12:30am and as late as 5am. I need to consider this for any upgrades. I like the under belly look though.

The video does it no justice really. It sounds fantastic but it is crazy ass loud. Probably 90-95db cruising around normal speeds. Crack the throttle and you are above 110db. 119 was the max one trial and 125 was max another trial. That's military jet take off power. I am so loving the form factor and look so much I may try to tolerate the volume.

I don’t notice any change in power. If anything it’s a little weaker like 3k ish range but I had it in my head the flapper had something to do with back pressure so I’m not sure it’s not in my head. I actually think higher up it’s stronger. Seems to lighten the front end more then I recall in spirited riding in sport mode before.
