Just curious as to how busy the motor sounds at 110 kph on a 1300 tourer. I currently have a Vulcan 900 Custom that starts to sound pretty busy at anything over 110. And do you find that you need to downshift when overtaking on the highway at 100 kph?

i dont hear alot of engine noise at those speeds. ive got a little noise at slow speeds or at an idle but it has always have had that. ive even gone as far as to check the valves after it has warmed up. i have yet to find a need to downshift when im 60 mph or higher and i ride an 1100 custom. your kph kinda throwed me off there for a minute. ha ha :D
