Well, I FINALLY got to LVD with the bike in some good air and ran the time I knew I could on this thing. I had taken it twice previously and both times we had shitty weather (DA crept past 2000 on both days), plus they were my first times ever drag racing a bike, so all I could muster previously were a bunch of 11.1's at 125-126 mph.
Fast forward to yesterday and I showed up with the thought that if it didn't go 10's, it just wasn't going to happen at LVD. As I've said before, the bike is bone stock: no strapping, no stretching, no tricks. I weigh 160, so probably ~185 in full gear. My first pass while the weather was still cool felt great and as I pulled up to the ticket booth, I had high hopes. They were justified with a 10.94 at 126. Later that day as the weather went slowly downhill, I was still able to back it up twice with a 10.92 (1.82 60') and then my final pass of the day:
The DA on this final and best pass of the day was +511, so not even the stellar weather we had arrived in as it was COLD when I left for the two hour ride there at 6:45am. The launch was strong as hell on that pass and I've come to the realization that 60's don't fully represent how great the launch was on a bike. They are indicative but often times when I have only a decent pass, it still might show a good 60' but you can still bog it midway through first with the clutch coming out, which is well past the 60' mark. I think for these bikes a 120' mark would tell the launch story a lot better for each pass. I had one 1.82 for the 10.92 pass and the 1.85 on the final pass felt significantly better (and involved me carrying the front wheel probably 100 feet or so).
Anyways, it was a great day and it's nice to finally back up my thoughts that this bike is a 10-second bike in factory stock condition with multiple timeslips, and from LVD nonetheless. Oh yeah, and I also hit 127 on the day, so that was a new best, as well.
