Great story Dave! We had this saying at my old shop refering to being young "just a little faster" ha ha reminded me of that. Slogger, I have had a few of those moments on motorcycles, maybe two that you think back and smile, for the rest of your life really. I know the salt flats are a LONG way across. They have a short coarse from what I am reading that they run old beetles on, it's a much shorter run up and the traps are much closer. Looking at the current 50 to 100cc records I wonder if they wouldn't let some of us run that. I have a target speed for testing and hopes of what it will translate too on the salt. I am hoping the next event in mid September will tell.
