Texas Mile time trials

Is anyone going to the Texas Mile event in Goliad, TX (between San Antonio and Corpus Christi) on March 24-26?
They have an old military runway 1.5 mile long for time trials. The fastest bike has the record at 251 MPH on GSX-R 1300. I am thinking about loading up my ZX10 and heading down. You just need to wear full gear and your bike has to have a steering damper. I think I will try to dial a 165MPH from 0 MPH over the mile. Strip off the mirrors and the rear fender with turn signals and I should be ready to go.

That is pretty cool. Doesn't sound like much for rules.... You just need to make the driver meetings.

You should be able to do better than 165 from a standing stop. Have fun if you go. Post pics too.
