1st time to the strip this year.

After a long winter and a nice spring that I didn't have my bike I finally got it to the strip. It was a first for alot of things that I have done over the winter. 1st time on the strip with the 1/5thg throttle. 1st time with thin head gasket and degreed cams. 1st time with low friction wheel bearings.

BTW I didn't care about times. This was about me getting seat time.

Anyway the bike did awesome. I did good too. 1st pass was a solo run and I got out of the hole pretty good. 2nd pass was against another stock height 10. He left WAY early. I caught him and had him covered by at least 3 bikes on top. 3rd pass was against my friend with the 180 rwhp all motor, extended swingarm 05 g1k. He was having traction and rpm problems. I beat him at least 5 times. He never once beat me, this time. Last pass was against a hippobusa. The only way he would race me is if he got the go. I gave him the go and a bike. I caught him and passed him, but it was the closest race for me all night. Little to say, I'm VERY impressed with the bike. I can't wait to get my new exhaust tomorrow and get it tuned on tuesday.


I live my life a quarter-pounder at a time. And for those 500 calories or more, im free. I need FRIESSSS! Two of them. The big ones. Oh, and I need them tonight. You're lucky the double shot of BBQ sauce didnt blow a seam on your nugget box.

Don't know trap speeds or times. I didn't really care because my bike isn't the way I'm going to be running it. When I get my arata on, then I will start looking for times and speed.
