Yeah can you believe it? This will be the first time that I get to spend our wedding anniversary with my husband... LOL. It's 08.08- he's always on the salt. Im not sure how he broke away long enough to get married... but it happened...

Hi my name is Dave Beaudo.  Go by ctyslkr66.

I have a 2011 Hayabusa and am throwing around going to Wimington Ohio in September to try to exceed 200.

After that, the Lord only knows how far I will chase.... speed....

Never done this straight line racing before, so I have lots to learn.  Appologize in advance for the "Oh my God, don't you know Subaru" questions.  hahaha

Thank you Jon for the web site!!

Welcome Dave, always glad to see another Busa rider. Where do you live? go into your profile and put your location in and when you post we will know where you are. What mods do you have on the bike?

Fred
I am thinking you are the guy whose brain I need to pick  :roll:   :-D

This is probably not the right place (Introduce yourself) to be posting questions to you though.

Where should I put my thoughts/quesions to you so you will see them?

Get in touch with the Head Handlebar Holder and owner of this site, Jon Wennerberg  a/k/a Seldom Seen Slim as he also lives "way up there" in the UP.....Skandia (outside of Marquette).  You guys can't be that far apart!
He has a few records and a Bonneville red hat and I sure he could offer tons of advice and is a REALLY good guy to boot!

Also, come to Wilmington in September.....you'll have a blast!  REALLY gorgeous facility!

Gregg

PS
We will be doing a live audio streaming event for the July meet so keep an eye posted the ECTA section!

Well, yeah, but not all of us can live on a higher plane.  And anyway, I claim first dibs on Mr. City Slicker/Dave.  He got in touch and even told me that he works at one of the local paper mills.  Top that, Fred!

Well Fred holds or has held every normally aspirated 1350 record... right there in the Busa wheelhouse...
Does that top a Kawasaki guy who lives close... Probably  :-D  :cheers:

But what do I know

MSA Bockscar Lakester #1000 my fastest mile 245 and change, 84 ci turbobusa motor... but Corey's 233 MPH H/BFL record is still 3MPH faster than mine.

Well, fine then.  Be that way.  At least he's from the UP - even if the very southern part of the UP.  I betcha he's eaten more pasties than you have, Fred! :-D :cheers:  So there.

Hi, I'm Mike D.  

I've been building hot rods and custom cars, bikes and boats for a while now, and me and a few members of the club have been to speed week at Bonneville for the last 4 years.

I must admit that I was fine with being a spectator the first couple years.  We've made lots of friends up there and have been learning a lot, and studying the rule book changes every year.  I'm beginning to think that we need to build a car and go racing (or at least go fast).

I'm reviewing the build threads on this site, and hopefully will be starting my own sometime.

In the mean time, we'll see you on the salt!  Look for the Midnighters shirts... we're a friendly bunch and have been known to share a beer or three with new friends.

Thanks.

Okey-dokey, Rick.  Let me be the first (at least here) to welcome you to the gang of yay-hoos that inhabit this site.  And before we go much further -- please take a minute to go back to your registration page and add, in your profile, your location.  We are interested so we'll know where you are when you ask for help or want to have something shipped to you from one of us or maybe when a couple of the racers from not too far from you are looking for a place to have coffee some Saturday morning.  And -- if you don't fill in a location - - I get to do it for you.  And that might mean you'd hail from Bruised Big Toe, Pennsylvania or maybe Cloaca, California or something.  Who'll it be?

But -- you'll be on the salt again this year, I read.  Great -- come find us at the Seldom Seen Slim pit and say hi to Nancy.  Yeah, do like so many do and ignore me -- I won't blame you. :roll:  But just in case -- sure, come by for a quick howdy and you'll know the guy that sits here whining about your location.

Welcome to the Forum.
