I have decided that I definitely need an air shifter. I liked dragging my feet when I made a pass on Rob's bike. I don't make Team money though, so it will probably be awhile before I get one.
All you need to do is twist yo wrist to run 10s on your bike.... mine goes high 9s and they are the same freakin bike....Your 70lb weight disadvantage is not killing a FULL second off of your bike. Strap that down, lean forward as far as you can and let it rip....

Burkes bike was pretty easy to manage. I expected more front wheel lift. It really didnt. I kept thinking about you saying yours wasnt trying to wheelie. I didnt really trust it to stay down, but it did. I had to remember to let out to shift. Been a while since I had to do that.
Joe was running the same MPH on mine as his.

I feel like I am twisting the throttle pretty quick but I know I'm really not. My 2.0+ 60's are killing me. I'll get better as I make more passes.
