Two videos and a few more pictures. We need a track section. The bike ran sweet. Was 101 air temperature. Had issues with the hard braking areas but as I played with throttle it was ride able. Thanks again Rick.

I need another gear for back straight. I am always slowing down and giving gas at same time trying to protect engine. I am concerned another tooth on front sprocket will reduce drive out of some of the corners.

Loved those...bike sounds very strong, sounds like she eats up the gears rapidly..

The bike does run strong, thanks. Riding a shorter track the 30th and with new tires I think I am going to let it rip. I have not been to MSR in a while so looking forward to riding with some friends. I am trying to improve my body position. Elbow out and head more forward.

At COTA they run a level 2 advanced and a L2 beginner group. The two are mixed at other tracks so it is a little bit of havoc till mid day. A lot of level 3 riders stay in L2 so they can be the fast riders. I do not get passed at COTA in 2B so with the new tires it should be fun.
