Thanks guys!

Duuuuuuude you got some LEGS coming off the final turn onto the straight!
Yep, had a good drive onto the straight. Also that stock motor is reeeal loose right now, needs a rebuild before it's too late... so it's extra fast.

Bike was getting HOT after that red flag restart. Curious on how you feel about the launch control the R1 comes with I noticed you dont use it.

We don't have radiator fans on the bike - so she gets hot if not moving.

I generally like the R1 launch control. I wasn't using it because the clutch is going on this bike so I try to be extra gentle on the starts right now.

I feel yeah my last race bike didn't have fans and ran real hot on restarts as well. I never liked seeing it up towards the 250 range...
