Default Took my bike to Portland International Raceway

Well decided to see what I could do in the 1/4 mile just for kicks and it was a blast. Never ran a bike before in the 1/4 so im pretty happy with the results it's definitely a adrenaline rush. My second to last run I spun on the launch and got completely sideways and almost got thrown from the bike and was facing the bleachers but hung on and saved it so then my very next run I ended up in the same lane and was a little gun shy and bogged with like a 2.4 60 foot lol and so I nailed it after I was rolling brought the front end up in 1st let her down short shifted to second and ran A nice wheelie almost a 1/8 mile and the cool part it was all legal no worries for leo . Well it was hard hooking up on the stock tires but I did manage to run a couple of good runs one at a 10.544 @ 138.67 mph trap speed with a 1.966 60ft and my other was a 10.527 @ 138.24 mph trap speed with a 1.892 60ft Pretty happy with the results . Had a lot of power just was trying to put it down without spinning and keeping the front end down when it hooked. Bigs thanks to Rons Performance in Gresham Oregonfor the sweet dyno tune .

Good job and good times too. I used to go there when i lived out there, i think it was like 10 bucks on fri or sat, run all ya can. They were on a big kick to stop the street racing, so the track was open almost every weekend. They dont use a lot of vht on the weekends, so it is hard to hook it up.
