Does anyone have any good sound files of a Royal Enfield?

An Australian dealer has a file that sounds like the AVL motor to me. Click on the "start your engine" button:

Then there's this guy (also in Australia) with a couple of good videos that let you hear the sound:

Turns out he recently picked up a 1956 Super Meteor!

You probably want better sound quality, but these are the best media I know of right now. Maybe someone on the forum has recorded their own bike and can post a file.

Any idea on how to download them as sound files?

Man those are sweet sounding bikes.
On the eighth day God created the C5, and it was better looking than anything on the planet.

If you use the Firefox browser, which you should be able to get or upgrade here:

http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/upgrade.html

you can get the Download Helper plugin, which lets you copy YouTube videos, images, and just about any media onto your hard drive:

http://www.downloadhelper.net/

You should be able to download the high quality version of any of those videos, if it's available, and it should have better sound/visual.

I imagine there are similar plugins for Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera, and other browsers, but I don't have experience with them.

Once you have the video on your hard drive, you can use GarageBand or iMovie (if you're a Mac user) to separate out the audio component and save it as a separate file. I don't know what Windows tools are out there.

I'm one of those Apple wierdos.  :D

I looked into what it takes to make it work on a Mac and it looks a little sketchy. The phrase "may cause failures" was used.

I guess I'll keep looking. Thanks anyway.

This one sounds best if you listen to it with headphones...

This guy takes you on a ride with his bike. You have to get through about five minutes before he finally hits the road, but it sounds pretty good once he gets going...

I must retreat to my place of Zen and meditate on this.
