No racing, 9” of snow today. 49” in the last 30 days. Hopefully some tnt hits next weekend. Super unusual weather this spring. Hopefully some of you guys will be hitting the track this weekend.

Made two passes to make sure bike was stable and didn’t fall apart.

Ran a 10.96. Need more seat time to get used to this new combo and how to launch it etc. It pulls hard AF though. It makes my 560 cam motor feel like a snail.

Right on! Just got rid of winter up here, but won’t be long. A few days of work on the bike and I’ll be ready for a shake down as well.
