Default exhaust that sounds like bubbling water

I rode up on a guy on a dyna something or other yesterday. His exhaust sounded almost like water bubbling along with the rumble. I thought it sounded cool. I didn't get a chance to talk to him about it. Ever heard anything like that?

It's pretty hard to get the burbling (boat like) sound with only two cylinders, but I've heard some pretty close, all 2 into1 headers, Stainless systems also seem to havenicer sound like you described...

Yep I have heard that sound before. When I tried to jump my 4wheeler across a pond, when I came up short I heard the sound that you are describing, but it only made that sound for a couple of seconds then went silent.

It's not good when the carb comes off and a lung full of water gets sucked in either, unless you think con rods should resemble pretzles...Don't ask how I know

I know a Briggs and Strattion with a open header will make the same sound at idle.

when I lost the brakes at a boat launch, the truck made that noise, until the cab was full of water

He had a set of erstails. Limited edition and only for carbed bikes. Somes fuelies run them but the sound is off.

My bike sounded kinda that way with the mufflers pulled and open headers. I know it's bad for the bike, but it sounded insane.
