First time @ the strip

I took the 10R to the 1/4 mile track last night for the first time last night, had a blast! I've been on a 1/4 mile once on my 636, and i've been to the 1/8 mile twice on the 10, so I wasn't expecting to run any respectable times...But I had a great time, and I made improvements on each pass.

Met up with Cookmaster30 {barry} and his bike is fast as shit!!! We made a pass together, and as soon as the light turned green, I think he had like 5 or 6 bike lengths on me, and whooped me by at least 3 seconds, but it was fun...

I'm SWB, slipon exhaust, -1 gearing, and about 200# suited...i'm pretty sure that with more time, I could run 10's on her.
I was launching about 9K, had no problem with traction, but had a hard time getting my foot up for the 1-2 shift...Felt like if i pulled my feet up that the front would start floating. Once i got to 2nd, WOT and shifting was good...

Dont flame me for my times, and some good tips would definitely help out as i'll be back out there soon.

and a vid I made a few years ago with my 636 at the track...
