Well not really, but kind of for me. I've been dreaming about getting a TRC Carbon exhaust for my 03 WR450, but kicking out the $400 was tough for me to digest. Not that I live in a cardboard box or anything, it's I've got about 10 house projects going, I just bought a bike trailer,and an Arai XD helmet (ouch!). My play money has been hoovered right out of my wallet. And to be honest, I didn't really have much complaint with the stock exhaust other than weight & a wee bit noisy. So I just couldn't justify it right now. UNTIL LAST NIGHT! I checked the mailbox for the daily bad news of bills and junk mail. Low and behold there was a check from my mortgage company. Turns out they had withdrawn $400 over in my escrow account this year. It took me exactly 7 minutes for me to spend it online ordering my new exhaust system. I figure hey, it's just like finding change in the couch or a finksy in the wash. FREE MONEY! It's just meant to be spent. Thanks to Elton for the pics and review of the pipe. I'll have to ambush the UPS guy as soon as he pulls into my neighborhood.
