Dragstrip

I got the cam cover on my KLR sealed up for now. If a few of you want to head up to Dorchester Dragway I'm ready to go. They open at 5pm according to their website. I wouldn't want to stay too long. We could ride some dirt or gravel after. Just an option, I'll try to check back here around 4pm and see if there is any response. God bless and best regards, Ken

I got to the dragstrip by 6 and they were drying it from rain, it was only $10 to enter plus $5 to run. Around 7 they had the track ready. I did 4 runs including a race lost to a Ninja. I had a hard time adjusting to the super sticky freshley glued track and felt like the bike was going to back-flip on each launch. The KLR is not a great dragstrip machine but at least I have a baseline now. BTD 9.439, leaves a lot of room for improvement.
