    Not seeing any "new" Murphy Lab info , thought I would share mine .

    Is 9.4 lbs considered real heavy for a 2019 R6?

    I just played a 9.2 lb R9 , sitting yesterday . Didn't noticed the weight, and It was a concern , as most of my up's are around 8.5 ,didn't keep it for other reasons . My first LP custom (87) 9lbs15oz sustained for ever .
