Motorcycle Audio Clips - Motorcycle Engines

By Walter F. Kern

The following is an evolving set of motorcycle audio files containing the sounds of various motorcycle engines at idle and at speed. Other effects are possible too. I'm starting out with my own motorcycles. I'll be adding more sounds of different engines as I can get out with my tape recorder. If you have any capability to record the sound of your own bike's engine, attach the resulting MP3, or WAV file to an email and send it to me for consideration. WAV files are OK but please limit the duration to less than 10 seconds since these files are huge.
