Well, got the new brake bolt, have the brakes back together. Made a new chain guard (class rules spec min. ,090" if steel), got the tach sorted, oil changed, numbers on. Now all I need to do to be legal is put some fire sleeve over the fuel line.

Well, Mimi may be a triple threat, but, my first ever trip to the dragstrip threatened nothing but my pride...



...but at least the bike looked okay

Best ET 8.611; best MPH 88.13. found it hard to get the throttle opened up before the top of first gear... couldn't seem to string two runs together consistently - going back for more laps to help strengthen that right wrist
