My first time

First time riding the 1/4 mile strip, at Pacific Raceways, that was awesome. First run was against my tuner and only got a 12.036. best time of 16 runs was only a 11.198. I got a lot of room for improvement. didn't have a clue what i was doing, got some great advice from some very experienced riders, test n tune days are freaking awesome. also yes i know, my RT sucks, i realized later you don't wait for the green light before starting...

It's addicting! The reaction is a common mistake made by first timers. More seat time and you'll knock this'd times down. Good luck
