First time ever at the strip.. 10.3 SWB

Decided to attend the last fun day at the local drag strip today.. Bike literally came off of the road course a couple weeks before, and had zero changes from it. Stock height, wheelbase, shifter, clutch, motor, etc. Just has slip on, filter, and -1 +3.

Ran 10.35 @ 141.02 for a best time, and a 10.43 @ 140 to back it up. For my first time ever drag racing on a bike, and having a bike straight off the curvy track, is this any good? Is my 60ft even at all respectable? With some practice and maybe some straps, how much could I expect it to improve?

Right lane #250

1.6x 60' is pretty damn good for a swb no straps and not lowered 10r which makes me think that from your 1/8 mile time and mph it was lifting up on you a lot? I'd say your times are pretty good for your first time, next time invest in a strap and you will be surprised how much it helps


65, pos
8.67 @ 154mph
