Hey Curt, I'm sure you're hitting 6th at TWS (Texas World Speedway), but not at MSRH are you?
PS. Stop looking at the speedo! If you have time to look at the speedo at the end of a straight, your braking to early.

Definitely not at MSR-H. Hitting 4th gear is all. TWS (Texas World Speedway), I wasn't either. 162 on the front straight. TRE is really for the stuff we aren't supposed to do on the street.

You need to gear that bike in a bad way. Like 180-185 mph in 6th at redline.
Does your GPS lap timer give you your speed?

Yes, the speeds I quote are from the data acquisition. I'm typically a true (gps measured) 138 to 139 into diamonds edge and 134 to 135 into the carousel.

TWS (Texas World Speedway) is 162 into turn one. I'm easing off the throttle before the transition, though.

I'm reluctant to gear specifically for MSR, however, because those gears will be useless at TWS (Texas World Speedway) or when I occasionally have the bike on the street.

Get a spare carrier and sprocket- just change those out for when you're at Angleton. Doesn't take long to change it.
