Funny what you hear when it's yours

So yesterday I picked up my new to me bike.
2005 1600 classic with 9k miles. Today I put a few miles on her. Now hear all kinds of sounds. Engine knock, tires 'whirl" breaks squeaking, gas cap hissing. Funny, didnt hear any of that on the "gosh I want her" test ride.

I like smoke and lightning.

Yup, the sound of the beast. 😎
Gas cap is a simple open and close to equalize air pressure.
Enjoy, that is nice low mileage...Happy Trails. 👍
