    :agree: yeah I get it :rotfl: I couldn't take pictures of myself since I went alone but they do time slips through their online app. So here we go, started out with 10.4 and ended with 10.06. Next time she dips into the nine's then I am headed home ;D

    Oh, I was #7.

      Was hoping to hit nine's that night but hopefully next time. Rear tire is starting to get slim in the middle, have had a new in my garage for about 6 months. Next time I'll try to remember to take a selfie at the TRP sign going in but Friday was the first time I had been there.

      Number 9 was a girl about 100 lbs. on GSXR 750 stretched and lowered. Nice lookin bike but she was having as much trouble as I was getting off the line. RED was a 1260 Ducati Diavel. I don't go to race, I go to see what I can get the bike to do but I didn't lose any race that I paired with anyone but I think I did three singles. :raider:

      Back to the strip last night to make that 9 second pass but missed it by .004 of a second. :( This was the best pass of the night at 10.003, looks like the front was in the air at the 330' beam since I didn't trip it. A couple of passes that way. Well going to break a while and head back in 3 or 4 weeks.

      Bad ass bro ! I have wanted to make some passes on the raider , only passes Iíve ever made was on sport bikes and a mustang I used to have . Keep at it brother and youíll get in that nine second range I think!
      Did you drop the air pressure in the rear tire some to help with launch?
      Lean till it grinds , then lean some more ..

      Hey man, yes I dropped to 19 PSI. Not much tread back there from the last few weeks. I already have a tire waiting, next trip to the strip the Avon will be toast. Hopefully the 9 second run will be there next time!!! Then I am done with the strip for another 15 years. ;D
