US 41 Sun 11/4 pics

Headed out to US 41 dragway in Morocco, IN last Sun with doorman(Adam) and my friend Tony and his girlfriend Lori. I haven't been to the strip in 2 yrs so i was still trying to remember how to launch the damn thing.
Met doorman @ 183rd & Harlem then rode to Tony's house in Steger then out to 41.Ride out there was abit brisk but plenty of sunshine. Only got 4 passes in and it took the last pass of the day to get somewhat close to the best et I had 2 yrs ago (11.40 @ 122mph).
Ran a [email protected] 120mph 1.98 60ft, the rest well... doesn't matter. I was stinkin up the dragstrip. Anywhooo, here are a couple of pics....
ENJOY!!

Edit: For some reason my pics are not uploading and stupid Windows Vista is not telling me why. I'll post the pix when my new stupid computer lets me

My only question is why do people insist on posting with red Unless it's bold you can barely read it. Try yellow

we got there about noon, made a pass at about 1:30 and another about 3 and then took off. would have been a nice day if it wasnt so windy.
