This one worked out well, despite a slow first run at 119 and change.  With the bike working well, Dan ran 124.502 to get into impound, but next morning run was a disappointing 123.  We jetted down to 220 mains, lowered the bike about an inch or two, and went straight back in line.

Dan went back into impound with a nice 125.977 pass.  I took the mains down to 210, and he put up a 127.214 return run for a new record of 126.595.

We realized the bike will pull more gear (he was over my planned 9500-10000 RPM), which we can do for the next time.  Hopefully we'll have time to finish the rest of the engine work, as well....I just ran out of time and we had to accept what we got.

A big thanks to Shaun Austin for his help and support!!

Regards, JimL

No, Dan's back home in Colorado with the bike.  We are done for this year.....the wallet is flat and the credit cards are still hot to the touch (and feel a little brittle).

Jim, I know about that feeling.  We smell burning plastic and we are packing and have not left the house.
