One balk run, two balks.  Or so I think...
Two balk runs?

She cranks just a tick under 98HP, and with 96 ft-lbs on the Torque side, she will get up and go...



I never went faster than 113 MPH.    :)

Sweet.   I think if we ever cross paths, we'll recognize each other.   :)     I had a bike when I was in the Army (many many moons ago).     Got married, kids, dog, etc.     One day my buddy bought a bike and said I had to get one too.    Missus was very supportive (she must have taken out extra life insurance).    I think she sees the bike like a shrink.    She'll say, "You need to ride."     Usually means I'm gettin' out of hand and need to do my psychological down time without paying $150 per hour.

It is great, cheap therapy...I likely need to avail myself of it more often...

I wrecked this one when it was 3 months old...Super Bowl Sunday morning 2001.  A blue-hair and his wife were leaving Piccadilly and crossing a 7 lane road.  He froze when he saw me and I T-boned him.  F'up'd my ride to the tune of $6K or so almost 13 years ago, but I did a pantload of damage to his Cadillac too.   :mg:

Ain't it something how they freeze?      I always laugh at folks who say they've "never been down and never been wet".   My response is "then you've never been riding".    :)     My buddy adds the key is to not do them simultaneously.   

I notice you have a solo seat (as do I).    I tell folks, it eliminates the "Can I have a ride?" inquires.

I haven't rolled quite that high on 2 wheels, though I still like to get my yah-yah's out... 

I do the Richard Petty Driving Experience here and there around the country two or three times a year...and have been for the past 10 or 12 years.  I'll be driving at New Hampshire in 3 weeks. 

I did the Indy cars with Mario Andretti a few years ago and got up over 150 on the oval at Homestead.  These are likely too small, but...

Buddy and I did it on RTE 3 in King George, CO.    I told him, "If I ever do that again, kick my ass."

BTW   Always wanted to travel in an Indy Car.

I was thinking you may have done it over the 301 bridge...  ;)

Everytime I ride on that crazy span, I love it.    Ever been to Captain Billy's or Gilligan's in Pope's Creek, MD?   How 'bout Apehangers?

They run specials all the time.  I would not want to run one of these at anything less than a 1.5 mile track.  The cars are tubs, and I would guess more like Indy Lights...

Don't think so...I know I was somewhere in Fort Washington the day before Rolling Thunder several years ago. 

That became something of a blur...

Now, you may ask, "What is a boy with this avatar doing in the Nats' site and not following the Steelers' game?"     Frankly, I have established that the Steelers are sucking wind this year.   :P

Based on today's performance...so it would seem...

Buffalo leads the Patriots 21-20 in the 4th...so it could be worse...

My Bears are clinging to life against the Bungles...

Arsenal unveils their fabulous new weapon next week.  It's not all worms & pee on the sports front.

Loved the Bears when George Allen was defensive coach in '63   ....   and of course Ditka   ...   Aliquippa boy  ....   saw him at Pitt.

International break.  England played Moldova a couple days ago, Ukraine on Tuesday.
