Best sound reproduction using stereo 2.1 sound system (http://www.amazon.com/Altec-Lansing-VS2621-Channel-Speaker/dp/B0025VKUQQ)

First sound check using a GoPro Hero3. Don't need to race the engine even. Plenty of power in 5th and 6th gears for this stuff, which explains the quiet exhaust note.

As she looked in May 2013. Video commemorates 5 years and 60,000 miles of running with a SuperTrapp

Next time will be of the SuperTrapp in anger.

Sound check complete. Angles adjusted. Here you have one of my two SuperTrapp equipped ZX-9Rs, the 2000 model, with decent sound replication and picture-in-picture. Riding with a ex-racer who likes to pretend he's still jockeying for position. He enjoys doing that from what I'm told. Annoying if you ask me, which is why I waved him through at 1:40m.

Very fun day by any measurement. As always, I'm very pleased with how my SuperTrapp keeps the power seemingly always right there in its sweet spot. I'm also pleased with how the ST keeps my bike at the front of the pack on gas mileage (MPG) and range. If you're guessing my MPG is in the 30s - 40s, like most liter bikes or that the little FZ-6 I'm riding with did better in the MPG department, you'd be wrong on both accounts. The FZ-6 was running in the low 40s and mine ran a tick over 50 MPG.

You can see how effortlessly my 900 gets along and if you're really paying close attention, you can hear how spot-on the SuperTrapp keeps the AFR. This bike literally coasts everywhere.

In this edition I had two GoPros onboard, but the forward facing camera mostly captured slower traffic. The rear mounted camera captured something a little more pleasing to the eye. At least for someone who's accustomed to seeing alfalfa & wheat fields and desert scrub brush.

CA-1

Coming down the hill to the flats in San Simeon, CA. What a view!

The GoPro captured it and I saw it out of the corner of my eye, but when you're focused on cars in front of you, some of this stuff doesn't get the attention it deserves. Even this reproduction is murky by comparison to the original video. The cameras are set on 1080p 30fps. Glad I took them along. The original uncut version I'm planning on making will be almost 2.5 hours when burned to Blu-ray in full HD.

Testing out 60 fps mode at 720p. The audio came out very well. I've heard others say they can hear me coming from long distances. Now I understand what they mean.

I am pleasantly impressed with the Hero3 up to this point. YouTube blurs some of the frames for some reason. 1:25m

And from another video perspective, from the cockpit of my ZX-9R. Proving beyond a shadow of a doubt how versatile the SuperTrapp exhaust keeps my bike's AFR. Here the bike is at altitude, climbing with ease yet another mountain summit. This bike is truly a joy to ride. All thanks to my SuperTrapp bolt-on exhaust universal.

At the beginning of the video you can hear the engine protesting my inattentiveness. I was coasting from 30 MPH to about 15 MPH in 6th gear while attempting to take off a glove, turn the camera on, and put my riding glove back on. I left that in, because I thought it looked cool. Look, no hands! :rolleyes:

Trackday outtake from early in the day. That's my instructor leading me with the orange vest. He releases me after having shown me his lines for several laps.

And a picture from that day.

What it looked like from trackside, riding this beast in anger...or simply ridden in anger, putting my head down and letting my Ninja fly. :p To be truthful though, the precise throttle control afforded by having the SuperTrapp keeping the air-to-fuel ratio just right, made for effortless fast riding.

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n590/e1_ZX-9r/9RinAction__2014/55dd3359-1f33-430c-8890-1660fe4ad0b5.jpg~original

And a clip from the very next session as I got more comfortable with going faster, but not full out. Only on the straights and fast corners where there was lots of passing room. Some of the upper B group riders were jamming themselves in on people, which is against the rules of safe track riding, but they were doing it anyway. So in the interest of safety, I just road a conservative pace and speed, leaving room in some of the tighter corners for the yahoos, in case one showed up.

The sound is captured from the front and rear GoPro Hero3 Whites. Even though this sound reproduction sounds good, IT DOESN'T EVEN BEGIN to duplicate the absolutely awesome sounding roar coming from this exhaust. Deceleration isn't anything like the soft hum, it too is absolutely raspy. :cool:

This one is a little different than your typical, watch-me-rev-my-bike-video. This one was made for another forum where other riders of the same type of bike wanted to hear how others' bikes started, idled and sounded. Includes video of the nice civil side of the bike and its darker side.
