What is a good race rubber dot tire that will last a while without tire wamers. I have powers now and buck said it is time. Plus, I almost ate it coming out of 2 at 115mph.

I know the speed because when the back end slid out the tank slapper it caused threw my legs up higher than the seat which caused my calf to nail the tail section so I was looking straight down at the speedo. Scared the the literal out of me good thing for toilet paper in the portocans.

I am usually in the high 90's coming out too but it happend a little past turn 2 is why I was going so fast but I still had a little lean angle that is why I couldn't figure out why the back end slid out in the first place.

Buck I will be call'n ya about those tires today.

Next time I will definitely be riding with you guys. I heard and saw the sparking knee sliders in action but I couldn't catch it on camera. You were too fast and I was too slow with the shudder. Here's what I did get though...

In the first one I posted, I was behind the tire-wall in the runoff area of turn one. Behind the fence. Excellent spot for shots if only I wasn't such a poor photographer and half of my pics came out blurred. But here's what else I have of you.

I tried linking them through photobucket so they would automatically show up, but it didn't seem to work. Any ideas on how I can do it in the future?

Yep that's Nick checking out what really good suspention feels like. I'm sure he can fill you in on the difference in feel. He also got to try a sweet Michelin slick on his front for the afternoon. His smile was too big to understand what he was saying..............
