New Puppy sounds nice! I been to FL, had a good time.
I was doing that with my carb 01 Dyna twin cam bored it to 95" best time was 11.2 121mph , stock frame stock wheels foot shift.
sold to a friend, now just rebuilding 03 XL motor / gear box ( Axtell cast iron ) have late EFI heads, same guy that did my twin cam doing heads, flywheels, gear box, got parts from Hammer, Aron was very helpful!! there is an all bike race, 1,000 mile north of me, in three months I want to ride to and race. will be braket racing, I won't be going hard as will still be setting bike up. but my builder, knows his stuff. but anything can happen, I enjoy the ride as well as racing. & when you ride there, you feel like part of the bike so helps.

LOL, with a name like that She will be good!! I love animal's!!you been to the track this year? even Wheelie bars don't make it easy, there is a lot to learn, I don't think I'll ever know all there is to about drag racing, and motor cycle drag racing is hard, thats why I love it. & bracket racing is very hard, as each racer equal no one has an advantage ( before the light drops ). cheers
