just got back frm the track

i'm not much of a drag racer any more but the weather was perfect and a few friends where going so i figured what the hell. i think i did pretty well considering the bike is 95% stock.

best pass 10.14 @ 137mph

i took me a few passes to figure out how to keep the front tire down but by the end of the day the bike grew wings

Nice work man - I have always wanted to try a bike at the strip - Jealous I am

AWESOME!!! I'm not really interested in riding at the track, especially since it seems expensive but I'd love to watch.

I had the long turbo gsxr1k custom painted silver. I must have missed you cause I didn't see any fast Fornerelli bikes.

Brian i have no idea what i'm doing when i drag race a bike thats like the blind leading the blind. i just went out to have fun.

geomoto, i don't know what you consider fast but most of those bikes where in the 9's, thats fast enough to impress me

I'll be at Union Grove Friday for a private day. Should be fun to see how a track bike does up the the 1320.

make sure you bring all your gear, they are kinda pricks at that track. Byron is much more down to earth with the bikes then Union Grove. the grove requiers boots and head to toe leather.

thats a really good time...especially if youre new to drag racing a bike. did you have the front end tied down? you must have had a pretty decent 60' time to get that et with that mph. good job
