its an expensive lesson.

I was drag racing at HRP at the quarter. Sounded like a misfire from my friend on a vmax riding back infront of the bleachers.... he heard the chain!!!!!! I had three stretched spots... It ate the sprockets and so on. By the same token, now that I think about it... the rear brakes were near metal to metal...

But I dont use them; only when coming to a stop and resting my throttle hand. That's how a tech handles his chit if he's not careful lol...
