After a long winter and a nice spring that I didn't have my bike I finally got it to the strip. It was a first for alot of things that I have done over the winter. 1st time on the strip with the 1/5thg throttle. 1st time with thin head gasket and degreed cams. 1st time with low friction wheel bearings.

BTW I didn't care about times. This was about me getting seat time.

Anyway the bike did awesome. I did good too. 1st pass was a solo run and I got out of the hole pretty good. 2nd pass was against another stock height 10. He left WAY early. I caught him and had him covered by at least 3 bikes on top. 3rd pass was against my friend with the 180 rwhp all motor, extended swingarm 05 g1k. He was having traction and rpm problems. I beat him at least 5 times. He never once beat me, this time. Last pass was against a hippobusa. The only way he would race me is if he got the go. I gave him the go and a bike. I caught him and passed him, but it was the closest race for me all night. Little to say, I'm VERY impressed with the bike. I can't wait to get my new exhaust tomorrow and get it tuned on tuesday.

Don't know trap speeds or times. I didn't really care because my bike isn't the way I'm going to be running it. When I get my arata on, then I will start looking for times and speed.

Thats what I was doin on saturday.

BlueD, My funds are a little low at the moment because of unforseen events (see 'had to buy exhaust'). I will be down there a few times this year. Its still early. You're in that big of a hurry to get your ASS HANDED TO YOU? My bike was launching like a rocket. Fast and straight. I will give you the go and 2 bikes to make it even.

The track I went to didn't have the timers setup or they weren't working. I only went to get a feel for the bike. I'm really interested in how it feels after the exhaust.

Since I don't have times or speeds I have a compromise for you all. A couple of friends got a couple passes on video. I will post them up as soon as they are available to me. How does that sound?

That was sweet 1killer. Up to 3rd gear when I could not see you then hear you shift into 4th. Sounded good.

Thanks. It feels strong and I'm more confident in my launches now. Less thinking about it and more feeling it. I can't watch the vid because everytime I do I watch it like 3 or 4 times. I've watched that vid probably 50 times today.
