How does this idle sound?

I've posted my thread about carb headaches. After getting everything sorted out, here is what I end up with.

Just for my piece of mind, let me know what you guys think about this idle. I've heard if it sounds uneven its probably normal, but this is my first Harley and I'm not sure how much is normal.

sounds a little tinny... Other than that it sounds ok. it might have a little fluctuation, but I've never met a twin that didn't have a little..

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Not sure, I don't have a tach and my ear isn't the best. I'm going to guess around 1K.

A tach add on is on the short list of things to pick up and will be on before spring.

Thanks for the opinions, my non-HD friends had me doubting my work.

That's just because they don't ride Harley's. Sounds good to me. Ride it.
