Went to the drags today

on my 05 10, first time running with a tree, I have done the local friday night racing with just a drop of the hands and lights pinks style a couple times but never gotten a slip before.
Here is a slip from one of my runs, I'm on the left.

I won my first 2 rounds (even though breaking out once) but broke loose good the 3rd pass for a loss. 2 more wins would have got me 1st.
It's pretty hard keeping the front end down! Our track is at about 2,500 feet, was about 60 degrees and the everyone kept saying the track was real slick.

Good times and awesome 60ft's. Are you strapped or lowered?

Says the correct date at the very top of the slip.

My previous bikes : 1st bike 1984 Honda V45 (750cc)
2nd bike 1999 Gixxer 600
3rd bike 2001 Yamaha FZ1
Current bike 2005 Green ZX10R

I bought my 10 brand new on March 31, 2006 it was a left over from 2005 so I got a really good deal. BREAK IN COMPLETE ! Riding hard and saving up for mods.

I can't see the paper very well. Who won, the 10R or the tree?

I don't care what kind of rider he was, he tested me and got dealt with. +1 in my book.
