Damn soundtracks

Yes Keith I could not agree more - the use of soundtracks, particularly drowning out such a novel-sounding engine - is very annoying indeed. A real dyed-in-the-wool motorcyclist makes provision for the sound of the machine to come booming through. It's bad enough the Yanks and the bike manufacturers blasting crap music over the top of lovely-sounding engines .... now it seems the mindless practice has caught on here.

I thing the best way to sum the RE5 up was wankel without the el! Deep Purple sounded much better. The sound of a Norton rotary 588 racer spitting flames out around the TT course, now were are talking!
