WoW that’s awesome.
Did you weigh it before you put it on?  
Like to know the weight of old system and the total of the bike.

OEM system weighed in at 17lbs...SC system weighed in at 4lbs.

Wet weight (actual) of bike before exhaust change was 458lbs...subtract the 13lbs for the exhaust and 1lb for the undertail...figure it sits around 444lbs now.

Yes it's titanium.  Weight savings also come from dismissing the cat.  The OEM cat on this bike sits in the exhaust tube...so I'm cat-less now.  :D

Went for a breakfast ride with some of the crew yesterday.  Man I needed it.  Been working so much I haven't had a real chance to go out and experience the bike much.

Ok just had to share this.  When we held Sammy's Cycle Bash, I was literally up for three days getting it ready.  By day of, I parked my bike on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant out of the way...then spent the rest of the day running my tail off.  I remember saying afterward that I was so disappointed that I wasn't able to get a good shot of my bike at the meet.

One of the riding groups I belong to was in attendance.  The president of the group, Deejay, and his wife were awesome.  Deejay MC'd the event and his wife Janet ran around taking all kinds of photos for us (she is a professional photographer). Well she heard that I missed all the photo-ops.  So she found a shot of my bike that she had taken...worked a little photoshop magic...and they emailed me this today.  How cool is that?

It was an absolute blast.  First session I was pretty nervous.  New bike.  Never ran that track.  And COTA is like hallowed ground...I've watched Rossi, Marquez, Lorenzo, Divisiosi, Espargaro all race there...these are guys I admire.  But I settled down second session and it was all over from there.
