Hoot!
Must have been a real buzz for you. It is really nice to see a build come together so well and perform superbly. You did real good on the track, Racerman..
Kind of like a drug addiction, expensive, dangerous and a real blast. Not that I ever tried drugs. Well, only the stuff the doctor gave me after the crashes and surgery, ha.

Thanks guys it was alot of fun!! Launching wasn't as difficult as I figured it would be with how sticky that track is.. M just gotta work on cutting some time off the 60 and getting this clutch dialed in so I can get full power down to the wheel.. I ran it to 7500 rpm and it was still pulling hard when it shut down. Can't seem to get the crvemaker software to install so I'm not able to program a higher limiter at the moment.. Need to get it back on the dyno and squeeze some more out of her..
Also gotta go over my whole bike today.. Shit was rattling loose all over the place.. Lost a dampner bolt. On one of my stabilizers.. The other stabilizer vibrated it self down and out of position lol.. One of my hand guard broke off.. Lol damn harleys

Nice work Mat and looks like there's more! I had trouble with the reprograming but gave up LOL. Hooked up with cycowrencher at the track and gave it to him. He got it done, maybe he can help you. Stuff is loosening up all over the bike for us too, today the fuel shut off! Never had that happen! Keep after looking forward to your updates.

Got the new pushrods for the exhaust in on Saturday, wasnt expecting them that quickly!
going to try to get them in and go over the whole bike from the track this past weekend. I know alot of shits loose now lol. Hope the rods are the issue, wanting to actually ride the bike, but been holding off on any distances until the issue is resolved!
