I've been Exhausted

Wednesday my truck died so I took it into the shop. I figured no biggy, I'll just get around on the bike. Nothing like having two wheeled backup.

Yesterday morning the dealership calls and says they have to replace my entire exhaust on my truck and parts won't be here until next week. Again, no problem. I've got two wheel backup.

Yesterday afternoon, my bike blows the exhaust baffle right out the the exhaust. Bracket surrounding the baffle fatigued, cracked and eventually the crack went all they way around the baffle until it was free to launch itself.

I have a new baffle and endcap coming in today thanks to Hellriser Customs over in Santa Cruz. How do you ruin two exhausts in one week....

That's what you get for using Dave's Insanity Sauce instead of octane booster!

Wow,
What a bummer, things do have a habit of going south all at once. Hope things inprove and all the repairs happen in a timely fashion.
