What is the whine?

Last September I bought the 2010 Rocket III Touring bike. This is the first British bike I have ridden or owned. I really love the features and have been in love with the lines of the Rocket III since I first saw one several years ago.

I have a question, however. What causes the engine to whine? I knew from some research that it seemed tho whine wile running, but sometimes it reallyt gets on my nerves. Of course, not enough to give up riding the bike. Does the whine dissapate over time?

Thansk in advance for any imformation you can give me.
