Motorcycle Night at the Drag Strip 1 Week ago  
High Desert Harley Davidson bought out the Local Drag Strip for the night and let everyone come ride for free on Friday. Garrett (AkaneBlack) and I couldn't pass it up! The temperature on the tarmac when we showed up was measured at 144*. Our 2700' altitude was adjusted to right around 10,000' with the temp, according to the track officials. I actually needed a bigger main jet, especially as it finally started cooling off around 8:30pm, my bike slowed down a little on top.

My fastest top speed of the night was 99.78 mph, and my fastest time of the night was 13.326 @ 99.28mph. I'm not sure what Garrett's best time was, but I do know that he ran two consecutive 14.864 runs at 88.37 and 88.39 mph. That's some impressive consistency!

We had a blast, and it was pretty awesome that the Harley dealer put this on for us. One of the salesmen I met there even talked me into going to their free barbecue the next day and test riding a Softail Slim S with a Screamin' Eagle 110" in it

Here's a couple of photos of us that High Desert posted on their Facebook the next day.
Here's Garrett and I in the staging lane, I'm the black bike.
Garrett staged up next to a very nice Raider.

That's awesome. Sounds like a fun time. Something special about any sort of race track time

Thanks, DK. I used to work at that track, so it's always a blast to go back and reminisce too.
