Stock Exhaust Note Getting Louder???

Hi fellow 900 owners. It's been a few months since I peeked in. T'Pol and I are doing fine. She has a touch over 4400 miles now. I started to notice about a month ago that I was thinking the exhaust tone was getting a more healthy note to it. I asked my wife and she thought so too. So a week ago I had my buddy take T'Pol for a ride past me since I have never heard her run down the rode unless I was on it. I was surprised to hear how loud the bike is especially when cranking on it.

Has anyone else who kept their exhaust stock noticed an increase in tone or note as time went by?

Did it continue to get louder or did it taper off?

FYI for the exhaust modders, I am talking about stock untouched exhaust becoming louder
