Guees its just not my style lol.. Was one thing to go from ridding my bike with the stretch for so long then jumping back on a short bike. But then you add on the fact that there is no such thing as slipping the clutch and it gets interesting quick

Yeah your was flying.....You busted my good one time...
I figured out that I can't foot shift for ....(at least on the 1-2) and I can't launch for when I have to foot shift...

I am not going back until I lower the 1000 and get an air shifter on it. Short/tall bikes suck to race, especially when you can't get your feet on the pegs in time to short shift out of 1st. I didn't even have for MPH since from 1/8 was so bad. I only went 112mph in the 1/8 and 140mph on the back half....this thing should run 115-117mph in the 1/8 on good passes.

Like work is right. I have been tired the next day after the track. People say "whats so hard about going in a straight line". I was paying attention the the strength I was using doing a side to side burn out the other night. I was surprised how much muscle I was using. I know its nothing like road racing, but its not just about a straight line. It was fun. I expect the straps this week and the book. I need to get a parts list for the clutch rebuild so i can get some better runs.
