how did i do ??????????????????????????????????

not to bad for my first EVER race event, i have no exp for raceing at all, never did a track day never did the drags !

i know i was not launching like the proes and i think i could have tucked a little better , and i may have short shiffted a bit but the best i ran this weekend was 184.7,

ok so ill explain ,

run #1 sat 10:58am, no quickshifter , so i was one finger clutching it and well i dont think it hit all the gears couse when i went threw the trap i looked it said 4th gear! it was 171.6

run #2 sat 2:43pm`, got the shifter hooked up and well it was set realy sencitive , it worked great but my foot kept bumping the shifter lever and it kept killing the ingn.

run #3 sat 4:44 moved the shift lever up in hopes o not hitting it and killing the bike , it made it a littel harder to hit the gears but it worked , i did miss a gear and i think i bliped it one time on this run , ran a 184.7

so sunday was cool and dry and the wind was not to bad at 8am but we dont start till 9 so it picked up a little not to bad ! any how the night befor i talked to greg the guy i bought my shifter from and he told me it has a sencitivity switch.

first think i tweaked the switch to the point i can get all the slack out of the shift lever , basicly just starting to load the lever befor it activates , works so much better and no bobles !

so sunday run #4 9:31 am, 184.2 the wind was not to bad but you could feal it on the big end !


run #5 last run for me ! wind picked up i wouldsay 10-15mph , cross wind , got a better launch, and i realy thought i would hit 185, it was a realy good run , 3/4 track you could deff feal the wind a little lean and the bike had some shake to it , but i still though "YES 185 FOR SURE "


NO ! last run 180.7 :(

so with the wind just getting worse and my lack of exp in raceing i fig i was not going to get any better , so i packed up a little early and came home. im happy for now my first ever race and i ran a 184.7 not to bad !


i think ill hit up our track a little more to get some launching skills ! lol

any how that is how i did ! thanks for asking ! ill get some pics up later

I witnessed that!! I wondered if it was anyone from MH. Sick speed. I'm sunburnt today =(
GixxerGirl was there. She only got 2 passes. Had to go back to the hotel mid day because of a torn contact lens.
