Decided it was a good idea to race Wetley

while I was SWB, the second time Id ever ridden the bike setup short like this. Needless to say, I got my ass whooped. Had fun though, got a lot of learning to do.

Absolute truth guys. I usually run better against guys I dont think I can beat, by a close margin though. My best pass ever was actually against Shorty from Madness when I went 6.36 when my 10 was 61"WB. Ill definently keep going at it as much as I can. SWB is such a challenge to learn. Plus note, I was racing a guy on a stretched 14 and it was his 2nd time out. Managed to beat him both times. I was pretty stoked about that.

I did a track day in August and had de-stretched it for that. I just havent stretched it back out since then and have dragged it twice while its short
