Default Wilmington Ohio ECTA

Ran the drag frame with the XB9 Buell engine ... 134mph under extremely difficult conditions. Temperature was 41* rain off and on all day.

Congrats on getting a run in in that weather. Heard there was a lot of rain delays. Also heard the course was excellent.

Course is excellent. Conditions were horrible. I need to freshen up the top end of the engine.

I wanted to ask. I love the front fender. I read there was a cross wind. Did you run in the crosswind? And if you did how did the front fender behave? Any adverse reaction?

There was a diagonal following wind that was strong and variable on Saturday. Tough conditions for sure. I put my nephew Joe on the bike as we had a fuel pump problem with this turbo XB7 Buell ...

It was as cold as it looks. I am not as fat as I look in the photo. I was wearing a goose down vest.
