Went to the track today

well guys it was a blast the very first run the front lifted up and i carried it a little ways but i must not have had the wheel straight so it started tanks slapping :shock: Scared the shit out of me but i pulled out of it and went right back for another run which i took much slower and straighter.My best for the day was a [email protected] mph i was consistantly in the high 10's some times getting low 11's i must say this thing scares me in first gear the rest of the gears i can keep down wide open.I traded with my friend and rode his 2001 cbr 929 with a bunch of crap done to it and i wasn't scared of it so i rode it hard.My best with it was [email protected] he couldn't hit 130mph on it when he rode i told him to try shifting with out the clutch but he couldn't do it.I did it perfect on both bikes,His bike was very nice i was impressed and with a good take off i could have gotten his into the 10's.I am really thinking about a steering dampener now after that scary first run it is making me think cuz i noticed at higher speeds it stars to make the front wheel shake back and forth but not alot.Well just wanted to post my times.
