Hit the track today, TNT. New 1275 street bike ran awesome. My race 1275 ran great, I was having some trouble getting into the groove.

Max made 5 passes today, I made 3. Cool 62* and we struggled with spinning. Street bike had 9 psi, new tire and spinning. Track wasn’t even sticking to our boots. But, we made some early season progress on both bikes, money bike in 2 weeks.







I’ll post a few vids later.

I made the first pass, but was bouncing off limiter at 6500 before the stripe. I refused to shift

First of 4 money bike races tomorrow. Mid 90s heat with high humidity. 3 of the 4 money bike sponsors didn’t sponsor this year. Assuming low payouts, but hoping people show up to race. Last year sure messed with a lot of things, thinking this is one of them. We’ll see, might have to sneak the boy into a 1/4 mile track and run street bike at Tri State raceway in Earlville, IA if bike turnout is low. Hoping a few of the regular busa guys show up, at least have some good racing if the turnout is low.

Chris don’t be modest, maybe not drag strip racing but heavy duty long distance determination and guts racing. You have my utmost respect my friend.
