We ran from 9:45 (when we got the track dry) until 7:00.  Perfect day for racing with a light tail wind.  Fastest bike was 222 in the mile (sorry Karl).  35% chance of showers tomorrow.  Everyone is happy as hell.  You should all be here.

I wish...  :-(  Glad to hear the day went well, though!

hey Tim,
I am happy as hell that very familiar ZX12 ran 222.0 in the Mile, makes my hard lil heart go pitter-patter. :cheers:

tell em to run 1.5mile today and beat Doug Meyer's 222.39 at 2009 Loring 1.5mile (on a that ZX12 in its junk yard dog days)

They fought with the clutch all day and he short shifted it to the 222.
when got the 222 they realized that they were out of gear.  So, more is better.  I'll tell them for you but I think they are going to want Colts 235.

short shifting costs 3-5mph...   :-(

This bike is now the fastest NA Kaw, period. And it did it without a gale-force tailwind, like was present in '09. Awesome.

It was a great run on a beautiful machine into a fairly hefty headwind.  Congratulations again Henry and Scott!

We had riders doing 15-20 runs.  Yesterday.  Same today.  Folks were hot lapping until they couldn't stand it any more!   :cheers:
