I'll be there riding my 10 and a friend's ZX14. Should be a lot of bikes, relatively cool weather.

Is your bike all set to go? What's your goal?

Yep fbmbks, Greg's turbo bike.

RF, good plan. Is your bike ready to pass tech? Metal valve stems, metal chain guard, safety wired axles (both sides in front), metal strap over battery?

Full leathers 360-zip or 1-piece, back protector, armor, Snell 2005 helmet, good gloves and boots?

Not a complete list, but things that sometimes get overlooked. Not difficult, just things to do.

I used plumber's pipe hanger strap (Lowe's, comes in a coil, holes every inch) and covered the battery front to back, bolted to undertray.

The front axle nut needs to have an edge drilled and safety wired somewhere, I used the lower fender mount casting. Same thing on the other side, drill an edge and wire around the lower casting, or a pinch bolt, anywhere. Sorry no pics.

It's still on, 50% chance on Sat, only 30% on Sunday.

My bike won't be ready, but I'll be there on Greg's ZX14.

Greg just backed out. He's afraid it will rain.

I'll bet you will be able to race Sunday Ratfink, and probably Saturday. Sorry I won't be there.

Yeah right!! Pictures for sure!! And "ratfink" did you gear your bike out for top end>? I'd say if you have a 08 a good setup would be 18/39 and see what happens

Well i think i did rather good actually i had fun and got sunburned there was a lot of people i had trouble keeping the front end down above 170 actually cause of the track being so bumpy i was doing wheelies at that speed and it was quite a pucker factor BUT on my licencing pass i did 149.64 and Won the super streetbike 150 index class so i got the patches and a Speed and Strength jacket and a picture of the bike and me will be in a upcoming issue

everybody was trying at the end to upstage my run but nobody got close enough
