There's a lot of possibilities. Do you know if the exhaust is factory or aftermarket? Does the pipe run under the tail, or is the muffler in the fairing with just the tip coming out?

Go to google images and search for "undertail exhaust" to get some pics that may be helpful.

So there were 2 tips, but you couldn't see the "can" (muffler)?

Something like this?

The first bike that comes to mind is the Triumph Sprint ST.
Did it look like this? http://www.bikepics.com/pictures/1282892/

kinda like the ninja, but the tips were a different shape and they were coming straight back not up the tail then out...if that makes any sense.

Unfortunately, there are so many bikes that fit the description you've given that it will be nearly impossible to determine what you saw. On top of that, it sounds like it may have had an aftermarket undertail too. I suggest going to bikepics and looking through all the manufacturers until you see what you're looking for.
