"Had a great weekend!Had a agreat motor and a ill handling chassis. On my first licence pass was easy 125 mph no problem,wrong.started off the line easy, slowly throttle up to 4100 r.p.m's in 5th gear,about 110 mph it slowly started to sway ...,so let off the throttle and speed back up to 125,wobble starts to get worst,so i coasted through at 116.421, a new limestone record for my class.my next pass mike marston and I worked on the steering damper,this pass is for my 150 m.p.h. pass,took off hard up to about 125 or so, bad wobble,tried to drive out of it,just got worst,coasted through at 98.606,went back to the trailer for the night.Well the harley road glide is a wonderful road bike,but was not made to go fast, so I stripped the fairing and bags off and had myself a stripped bagger! went out sunday morning and went through the gears,much better, but still a wobble,went through the traps at 129.491. bettered my record.Once again I had a great weedend,looking forward to next year,got a whole year to fix.And I want to thank my wife,mary jane, L-A Harley ,mark michauld,dave couyard,bill hale and all my friends.photos later.
