    Hah, fresh Dunlop slicks are going on at the track, though, at my slow test pace those Shinkos felt ok on the track… :P Just haven’t had an opportunity to swap tires, and keeping the DOTs allowed for legal(ish) road tests while setting things up.

    The Ulysses has passed tech, there is a Buell fan in the Dunlop tire crew and a couple in MA's tech team. This friggen heat though, how TF do people function in it?!

    Our Dunlop guy is a Buell fan too! haha, whats up with that?

    Last race round was 108*. Tech 10 airbag sure doesn't help either Immediately get to an A/C vent and a water bottle.

    I can only imagine how much hotter Maine is than Phoenix.


    Donít mind the snarky comment. I still dig you.

    I overheated, the bike is running fine. Didn't qualify for the A mains, will be in the B main on Sunday. Having a ball, just wish I had more seat time beforehand as I don't trust the bike yet, not sure how much I can get away with trail braking, how hard can I pitch it, does the slipper actually work as well as I hope, etc. It doesn't feel as down on power as I feared, though it's topping out at 126mph, 6k RPM in 5th and it will go no faster. I'm seeing hints that it's roll speed capability is better than many machines out there too...

    Having a ball out here, random Buell fans popping up all over the place, other than the damn heat this is a good time and I think the Ulysses is going to stay in race trim after this.

    5th in the B Main, I think 4th in American Aircooled Twins. Got it to 131mph.
