Had hoped to go to the 1/4 mile track. The "race season" is coming to an end here in the Midwest in the USA. The weather has not, and probably will not cooperate with Wednesday night test and tune (the forecast for this coming Wed. is for rain). So plan B was to go to Bunker Hill Dragstrip in mid central Northern Indiana. The track has open test and tune on Saturdays. But the track is a 1/8 mile track.
Well, at least I was consistent, even though I was consistently bad. Best time was a 7.121 @ 105.82 MPH. Top MPH was 105.91 for a time of 7.151. Outside of three jacked up runs, all runs ranged from 104.5 MPH on the bottom end, to the numbers above on the top. The worst run was 101.something. There were only 12 or so cars there. So I ran a boat load of times. After the first ten or so, all runs were in the 105 MPH (about 169 KP/h) range. I am 100% certain that the bike could run in the 6.5x range with a trained/experienced rider.
I tried spinning the wheel in the water box 1 time. It did work. But I think that it is too costly.
My KS is bone stock. I am 6'2" and weigh in @ 255 LBs. (I am sure that my weight does not help). The weather was awesome for running. 55 F/13 C no wind to speak of.Sunny day. Ran on pump fuel.
