Jay, here's my two best runs from last year. The 60 foots were ****ty however, will improve on that this year for sure. Also when I get my airshifter, I won't have to foot shift either anymore
P.S. You're on my MSN

this is gonna make me sound like a total *******, or a moron, or both. for the record, im neither...well everybody is an ass sometimes, lol

ok- you're launching it (as in you're completly staged, those 3ambers are starting to lite up, clutch is startin to come out as you anticipate the green lite), so why are you looking at the tach so intently?

for instance, when i stage, i bring the first lite on, look at the tach and bring the rpms up to my set point (depends on the track), then i look down the track with the tree in my periphial vision and bring the second lite on and wait for those three yellows to flash. my rite hand never moves till i start letting the clutch out, so theres no need to look at the tach.

im not saying what i do is rite, or that what you're doing is wrong, but anytime i see something different, in anything, riding style, bike design, setup, i like to check it out and learn from it. enlighten me

Everyone has a different style. Maybe I was watching for the shift light as well. I don't remember for that particular moment in that pic why I was looking down lol. I also have a habit of letting my right leg dangle off the peg until about the 1/8th mile mark. Just a force of habit I guess.
