Da Grove - 9/26

Time to get back to my roots of racing, and hit the dragstrip. A handful of my Shelby Dodge buddies will be up there running, so hell why not see what my trackbike will do on the strip

anyone else?

I've been driving that corridor for 10 years. Highway 165 is pretty much guaranteed to be watched. Those Kenosha sherrifs are always on I-94, watching the northern and southern borders.

you kidding me? she handled the track like a PRO!..

i got 5 runs in that night, in full track form even running my SC3 rear slick ran a best time of 11.33 @ 123mph. my list of kills included;

Gixxer 750 - stock
Gixxer 750 - stretched
CBR 900RR - slip on only
89 Shelby Daytona - stock and slow

only thing to beat me was a Snowmobile, he ran a mid 10


the thing about the dragstrip, you really learn how to launch the bike which you dont get any practice at NESBA days doing. i was impressed with myself.

Good mph...it could go a very high 10 like that. What were your 60s?

1.9s most of the time.. 1.865 was my best.

if i actually set up the suspension for drag, it would have been better, it was hard to keep the front down.

If the weather holds up I'm planning on going to Da' Grove on Thursday the 5th. I'll have my new turbo bike out and hopfully I will have figured the clutch out. Look for a turbo GSXR with Never Again on the windshield.
