Raced my bike at the drags
« on: September 18, 2016, 06:44:04 PM »

I ran my 08 Springer at Oxford plains dragway in Maine friday 1/8 mile best run 8.30@84 mph crossing the stripe just before the Rev limiter in 3rd gear. Hope the picture attaches

FYI, this would compute to about a 12.78 in the quarter mile. Not a bad pass.

We have a 1/4 mile track nearby but they don't like my helmet not sure it would be quite that quick. I was thinking 12.90's my cars work out pretty close using 1.57 x 1/8 mile ET They launch pretty good compared to the bike so maybe the bike would make up some on the back half. Its all great fun no matter though that's for sure

I didn't do a burn out or lower tire pressure from the 35 psi I run everyday. I kept launching harder and harder went from 2.03 to 1.97 but couldn't watch the tach and tree at the same time. My 1.97 the primary didn't like and I was distracted and late on the 1-2 shift. I was 1.99 on the 8.29 pass and 2.00 on the 8.30 pass. My best shifts were on the 8.30. The 1.97 I hit the rev limiter and went 8.38
