Re: How are you getting to the track?

Im trying to make a trailor out of these jetski holders. If its done by the 28th then i can probably add 1 or 2 extra bikes onto it. But i think SYD is getting that large trailor.

Re: How are you getting to the track?

definately need extra gas , just ask syd,,,, haha lol

i filled mine up every two sessions,, you really use alot of fuel b/c youre runnin your bike at really high rpm's all day, constantly changing gears on the gas off the gas, so you do use more gas than you normally would,,,,

so bring extra unless you can afford to pay $5-6 per gallon for the race fuel that you dont even need to use.

You're forgetting how hard you work the bike though. You aren't on the highway.....

Re: How are you getting to the track?

i got fueled up 4 times for 120 miles of riding at the track,... your bike doesnt run at low rpm's, so youre gonna use more fuel...

Re: How are you getting to the track?
