Sounds like your bike needs to go on a diet. I say your bike cause no man should have to cut back on food and cold beverage for anything

I don't mind experienced riders taking my bike down the track. That way I get some pointers and have some numbers to shoot for.

Best way to learn is to do it. Dont feel bad if you only cut like a 2.XX 60' you first try, everyone starts somewhere. The more you practice the easier it gets. Object is to get the clutch out and be at full throttle asap. Basically try to leave the line and ride a wheelie with the tire about 2" off the ground

I heard those two guys are really small. I'm 6'0 240lbs. I need someone closer to my weight so the time set isn't ridiculous.
