Actually quite close!!
The closest track we go to [Martin 131] is an even 100 Mi..
Rockingham is over 810 mi.
We have "Real Racers" who travel much farther.
One Guy from Houston, TX to Martin 131... over 1200 miles!!!!!

My Folks travel even farther... To Golf!!!!

Yes, this was her first event with the bike, she’ll be in the 13’s as soon as she gets comfortable with the launch. She’s coming from an stock 07’ XL, so a bit of a change with the 51/19 on mine.

Was doing some testing at the track last night. Nothing worth writing about, however, I did meet a guy who came up in his 02 custom with a standard 1275 kit on it. Said he hadn’t been on the track since 1969.

Ran 12.80s with forward controls and all the junk that is bad for racing. I was pretty impressed, most guys who show up run high 13s. Maybe he’ll find this thread and maybe he’ll hit that pipe too
