Bike Night....Safety First Racing Thurs 5/20

Bike Nights are back at Safety First Racing for 2010.

We'll kick off the year with our ever popular Dyno Night.

Bring your bike and have us do a Dynorun and see what kind of horsepower your bike makes and more importantly see how good the mapping is on it. We have a Dynojet 250i with the Tuning Link software housed in our state-of-the-art soundproof room that lets us really get the most out of mapping a bike.

The first 5 people to show up and sign up get a free Dynorun. $25 per Dynorun for everyone after that.


Thursday 5/20
6:30p.m. - whenever

Safety First Racing
817 S. Kay Ave. Unit 5
Addison, IL 60101

Thanks Kevin! I'd like to see the busa like power my stock SV650 is putting out. I want to get a baseline on it. And I'm looking for the suspention classes to come.

Food is Cheesburgers/Hamburgers right off the ol' grill.

Suspension class is coming....I'm trying to pin Mike down at Penske for when he has an open saturday and bring him and my crewchief Don back in from Traxxion.

What makes sick power is that freakin BMW!

Feel free to throw a Penske and ak20's on my SV. It's always a better seminar when you have real world projects to show the work on (I am kidding of course)

On that note. I do have to take a minute. Kevin has been working with me quite a bit lately to get my trusty little SV sorted out. The key to an SV on the track is handling. An area where my little bike has not excelled. Kevin has been very honest with me on what is needed to get the job done. My pocket book however has not been as cooperative. Kevin has thrown all of his knowledge (and the knowledge of others at his disposal) to help me get the bike as sorted as possible. It's amazing what you can do with some honesty and the help of real world knowledge and experience.

I've said it before. When a guy goes out of his way on more than one occasion to get your bike sorted on a hairball deadline, I'm a customer for life.

Kevin you better get that food early, because I'm treating this like black friday, posting up in your shop as soon as I get out of work! Daddy wants a dyno run for free!

Damn, this might be the incentive I need to get ass bike back to being street worthy. With going to the track every other weekend so far this year, laziness has gotten the better of me by not wanting to switch shit over.

How early can we sign up? Some of the joys of being a block away. (or maybe a free dyno run with the purchase of leather jacket)

Considering the price of those jackets, you should be giving Kevin a hundo and a handsky.

That's actually the reason I'm not welcomed back.

I'm considering buying the next size down as well.
