Have you ridden a bike with a windshield or fairing much? Many people haven't and don't realize how many noises the powertrain they're straddling makes. Take a short trip under the hood of a car and you'll see they make a lot of noises too. Try it with a diesel and you'll get a really good taste of bang, clang, clatter, clink, squeek.
It's not just the powertrain; you'll also hear your brakes belt and tires. It's all part of the experiance.
Ride safe and enjoy!
