More preliminary reports from Mike, is that the down run looked perfect. The timed mile would be about the 4-5 mile on the SCTA course, down run was great, taking it easy, no slip. The return run Rocky got a little squirly, let off and it straightened out then tried to get back into it and just got out of hand. Mike says the body is completely gone, broke some frame mounts and will need to be taken completley apart and see how bad the frame is.

The main thing is that Rocky is OK.  :-D The Bike can be fixed or replaced. Mike will do what is right.

So today we got in right when they opened, and got ready and had the bike in line at a little after 7:00. At the Bub meet, your physical position in line doesn't matter, you check in with the pre-stage guy and he puts you on a list in order and you go in that order.

We got sent to the 2 mile at about 3:00, and we got on the course a little after 4:00.

By 4:30 we were in impound, claiming the pass. She went 163 this time. The extra ballast helped. Still spinning the tire and getting into the rev limiter.

Unfortunately, there was just no time for a change considering the 5:00 course shutdown.

The return pass didn't happen until almost 6:00 though. She reported lots of wheelspin and only managed 159. So we claimed a new record at 161 and change.

Not at all sure I'm going to pull the nitro bike back out, I still don't think the course is there yet. The motor only has so many passes in it and I'm inclined to save them for hopefully better conditions at WOS or Finals.

Here's some pics of my bride and her bike ...

Congrats on the record Aaron!

I heard today from someone out on the salt something very similar to what you described, getting in line early in the morning and not running until late in the day. Why is that?? I have always heard you could get a lot of runs in a the BUB meet, however it only sounds like one a day this year and with a potential storm coming who knows what is going to happen the rest of the week.

Scott, the Bub folks use quite a bit different procedures than USFRA or BNI. They just aren't nearly as efficient. I like the event, I think it's very special to have a bikes only event, but this one aspect could use improvement. Many, many people wait all day and don't get a pass.

Man-o-man, this can't be for real, can it?  I've never seen so few Hayabusas at a land speed racing event (in modern times).  What is this -- a special event where "If you ain't got pushrods, you ain't got s**t?"

You said it buddy, not me! :wink:

Slim, it takes patients to run a Harley... :roll: 
And once they are released from the hospital and on the not so forgiving bike, it takes patience too! :-P
I take it you're going out to run Bob? If so, best of luck to Stainless & Son!

Aaron, nice reporting and most EXCELLENT(90* & eye level :-D) pics, thanks!
