First day I had this bike at the track. When running my' 85 Vmax I had done 11.7 at about 114 MPH as my best (no heating up tire nor lauching - I take off like a grandpa - oh wait, I am a grandpa - plus I weigh 220 lbs.). Today my best was 11.2 at 120 MPH. I did have one run at 11.5 at 121 MPH - best speed but not best time. Track was too crowded only got in 3 runs. By the third run I was not as afraid and when I took off my son said I smoked the tire. BTW, 1st run was 11.5 at 114 MPH.

Keep in mind this was my first time out with this bike so I didn't heat up the tire nor did I try and launch. I just wanted to get out there and give it try. If I had more runs I believe I could have improved and would have tried for the 10s - was very hot though today.

Nice times!!! 10's should be no issue at all with a little more seat time at the track!
