Cool2 At the races on June 11th...

There were more races on the 11th of June. I still had issues with shifting, but I was able to get the bike on track into 3 races. Out there on track I discovered my bike is damned slooooooooooooooow. I mean really slow compared to the other bikes on track. Max was there - Max from MAX BMW. He's a friend of mine. He saw how my bike was performing. Max is a really good friend because he wants my bike to go faster. After the races, the bike went away in his van back to one of Max's shops for some component replacements and some Dyno work. I think the bike will perform a lot better next time out. Items getting attention are exhaust, brakes, cylinders, pistons, and heads. It will go better. The original set up was built with totally stock components from various sources and spares. I probably expected more than what the bike could realistically do.

Here's a video of the racing that day. I think it's fairly evident how my bike performed based on the other bikes out there.
