Help me pick my exhaust(vote)

Alright, just torn on it and bored so I came up with this idea. Which exhaust should I get? I like the Micron twin outlet because I think it's the best looking pipe for our bike, the fit and look. Akrapovic is just a nice pipe and I can get the carbon or titanium one for the price of the twin. And yes they're slip-ons so I know that the power won't be a big deal between the two, I just want your input, that's all. Any opinions on info will help as well, guys with akra's and twin's please chime in. Anything will be appreciated. I'll be ordering it this week by the way.

not trying to knock Micron, cuz it don't look too bad.. but i've heard Akrapovic makes some very high quality stuff.. i'm all about putting high quality stuff on our bikes. it gets my vote. good luck. oh, and titanium looks awesome on any color. what color bike you got?

All, the looks and sound for sure, I've heard that slipons all give the same amount of power if any, not sure if it's true but with that said definitely looks and sound.

I was sold on the Micron but when I started looking at prices I noticed the Akrapovic was right there and I've heard nothin but good things about them, while I've heard mixed emotions with Micron. This is where my dilemma is. Looks and maybe less quality or Akra?

Just get what you like. If you end up not liking it sell it here and get a new one.

ive heard good from both....Micron and Akra are both good brands and make good pipes for our bikes.
me personally bro...id go with the Akra. it looks better for me than the Micron dual twin outlet did. Akra was my 2nd choice...before i got the Arata.
everyone here has a personal style and taste for the their bikes. go with what suits your style for the bike. jus my .02

The more and more I get closer to my decision the carbon fiber akra is getting tempting.

Last question, I think I'm getting the Akra, but when I checked them out there is a street legal series and the other series. The street legal is pricier, does anyone know the pro's and con's to them both? I kinda want the non-legal series but don't know if I'm making a mistake.

It better be cuz I ordered it!! I like Micron for the fit though, I just hate cans that stick out far and a lot of them do, hopefully the akra doesn't too far.
