Lightbulb MINI MADNESS DAY AT THE STRIP...GAUGING INTEREST

Would all of you mini guys and gals be down for a night at the drag strip? Let's see who has the fastest mini on MH!

We can have different classes for the 50's, 65's, and 85's.

We can do it at Sealy or HRP.

What do you think?

I regularly raced my YSR85 and later my RS85 at HRP a decade ago (until I was booted by track management for doing a wheelie down the staging lanes). I had to have to have a chain guard, so I fabbed one up. I strapped a flashlight to the back of the bike because a tail light was required. I don't remember exactly what the times were, but once properly geared, I was somewhere in the 14s and in the 85 mph range.

The most classic part was a hayseed clown from Backwoods, Texas, driving a clapped out middle 70s Malibu, laughing at me one night when I was on my little bike. His buddy said, "Hey man, don't laugh. He's about as fast as your Malibu."

I put that on the 65. I have already spanked you too many times in Fayetteville on the GSXR.

I saw some 50's go down the strip at HRP during our last MH day there. It was quite a site

Might be fun if we could get a few minis together! The car guys would not know what to think. I don't think I would want to pick up my time slip after the 1/4 mile though!

If my Elite would go over 20 with me on it, I would challenge you to a scooter race, 2 stroke vs 4 stroke!

sounds like fun.
I'll probably need about 4 bus lengths to give anyone competition.
Hopefully I'll have the XR together by the end of this week.

Throw some 8 gram weights in there and you'll get him on the big end.
He'll own you off the line though.
