Going to the drag strip.

Couple of my friends were wanting to go and take their cars and they invited me to take the bike. What all do I need to take or need to go down the strip a couple of times? (gear wise) Do I need a license or something?

Yes. You will get warned if you bust 120. If you are not a heavy guy its very likely that you will run 120-126. Do you have full leathers?
