I'm planning on taking the 10r to the strip for the first time this season.

last season was good, but i've learned some new tricks and wanna put em to the test.

I didn’t plan on it either, good luck and watch yourself out there as the wind is picking up and flows against the track out there.

ok well big bummer tonight. the lasers at the 1/4 weren't working so it was 1/8 all night. (lame status on a 1000cc)
got some vid and pics, but nothing spectacular. maybe ill post one up in a bit.

Reactions varied from .092 - .28x
(its first time out in a long time)

60fts were ~ 1.75 (not shabby)

and 1/8th was bout 6.75x

trap speed was ~114mph

except for the one mishap :mrgreen: were my 1/8th was 10.7xx (i've never even run a 1/4 that slow before :doh:)
i have a nice vid of that, once i get it uploaded ill share. i basically roasted the tire once i hit 25mph(ish) and fishtailed while shooting rooster tails of smoke up for about 100ft or so.

My road racing experience helped with that, (i slide my race bike quite often)


so beside the 1/8th mile gayness it was a nice night. I killed a Zx14 straight up 2x

I found an old slip from last year (Oct 06) which was the last time I went out and had a scary situation like you after this run …a nasty fish tail and still not sure how I kept the bike from going down other than natural instinct from riding motorcycles all my life. :dontknow:…but it was nasty and when I got the bike back in control I had to shut down the run.

Anyway here was the last time at Sacramento Raceway..nothing great as I have done much better before but shows that if we both line up it could be fun at the end:

Reaction - .293(best .008)

60ft – 1.700 (best 1.6s)

1/8th – 6.716s (best…don’t remember but better than this)

my mph has been going down and suspect my clutch is wearing down..:dontknow:
but hopefully could confirm it this year.

Will PM you next time I go out and maybe your buddy will be better on the camera next time(not that those shots were shabby :headshake) to get us both lined up together. :wink: :eek:ccasion1:

thats the movie of me killing the launch.

now that i watch it, it doesn't seem as scary, but it did kick left right left right. in the vid it just looks like a slight left then right.

:crackup: i didn't even realise i was spinning it INSTANTLY off the line.
too bad he didn't catch my wheelie the whole rest of the 1/4 1st-3rd gear lol.
