    I will bring it back next year,,just too dam mutch compression! there was nothing that it wouldnt go up. ,, and on level ground when you get it wound up in 5th its rollin,,we were doing some high speed run's and the bushes were a blur... the only thing that was clear was jason hall who was right next to me

    following guys out on the dunes I was just luggin in 3rd like a tractor wile the 250's were pinned on 4-5th.. I love that feeling being able to fan the clutch and take off.. I sufferd mid week when I changed my oil from belray to a 10-30 my clutch was never the same,,on friday it was slippin good ,, but I took it easy on it and made it last the week..

    I love that feeling when your up on the lip of that high edge and you can roll into the throttle and pull the front .. thats the best feeling..

    Now going from 100 oct with a 180m and a 60p when I first got there,,, to 50/50 racegas and jetting all the way up to a 225m/ 68p,, then switching to strait race gas,, then jetted all the way down to a 190m with a 60p,, started with a b8es went to a b9eg to a b10es.. Retarted the timeing all the way,,was still pinggin at high revs a little,, but under a load it was a animal. it fought me all week,,

    Round 3 the TT set up...

    Here we go again... Round 3 .................. I figured I would get a little more use out of this bike setting it up with the +1 Calfab with the +1 dogbone.. Slid the forks,,, swapped tires... and added a number plate front and rear. now were set to Flat track and ICE Race.. after the first ride it dawned on me the bars sucked! felt like i was on a old street bike .. very narrow... So... I swapped them out for the same fat bar set up as my MX bike.. and I love it.. this bike will debut at Paradise speedway NY on Oct 20th with this new setup,, Gunning for a FIRST Place win ..against Mr McKane and Trish... Lets find out if Trish is a man?

    the big bar set up allows the forks to slide up further than normal , without interference from the brake rez. I think all that let to do is add a bar mount pad and cut some numbers for the front!

    Holy moley.....Looking good Brian! It looks like the big bore class will all be stepped up a notch at ice fest this year! I read about all the new, bigger motors coming out and it looks to be a fierce line up. I guess my 'ol 330 will be out matched. It looks like you will have to build a bigger track this year.

    I wish I could TT with you guys, but that isn't in the cards with the hours I work, 3 kids and a 6 hour drive each way. Hopefully we will get ice this year and get a chance to do some racing again.

    Bryan Raffa, a man who beaks rings, breaks cranks and , bend rods into a Super Pretzel and somehow he gets fence wire stuck is his axel and in a few days it looks better than it did. A man who won't quit until he's out of parts.
