I had my first run at the drag strip, last night, and what a blast! It was a lot of fun, and i got to meet many of other bikers and learned a lot. Unfortunately we didn't get to the strip until an hour before close, due to a a buddies bike breaking down. worse... I did terrible. my best time of the night was a 12.063. so I've got a lot of work to do!

hears the individual times of the two runs i got in;

1.)
RT... .401
60'... 2.842
330'... 6.186
1/8... 8.601
mph... 104.53
1000... 10.619
1/4... 12.320
mph... 131. 24

2.)
RT... .798
60'... 2.384
330... 5.689
1/8... 8.169
mph... 101.53
1000... 10.273
1/4... 12.063
mph... 122.86


So clearly I didn't do as well as I hoped I would. Im going back next Wednesday and hopefully I can get into the high 10s is the goal. any advice would be great! thanks guys!

Ya just practice, you need to work on your launch & get the 60ft times down to 1.6-1.7 or near that. The boys were telling me 1 tenth on that end is 2 tenths at the finish. Also, i was trying to get into 2nd to fast...really ride the clutch to keep the front down & only shift into 2nd at the 60ft mark. Most of all have fun! Good luck. I've only gone 2 or 3 times with my 10R & ran a 10.20 @141, good for me but a lot of guys here go a lot faster!!!

here is my best run;

R/T... .594

1/8... 7.957
mph... 102.14
1000... 10.062

Just more practice....rev the bike up to 8k (or whatever your comfortable with) before the lights come down & let the clutch out slow & stay on the gay....remember you've gotta keep the front on the ground.
