Lake condition and forecast

Post by god of speed » Sat Feb 25, 2012 3:18 am

Sorry, I don't have this information, but if anyone does have any insight as to the lake condition and more importantly the trials actually being run, please enlighten me.

I have heard on the saltvine that there is a chance it will be rained out.

Don't know where you heard that, a psychic maybe! The surface is perfect at the moment & long range forecast doesn't show anything to worry us. A few of us are going up next weekend to do a final inspection. Pete. DLRA #6.

Ok good stuff. Just wanted to hear what everyone else knew about it as the forums have been a bit quiet recently.

My bike still has work to do but should be ready for the salt.

Not long now!

Hey GOS
Just having a look at your web site -- verry nice
But you better update it. The "wourld record" for a 125 is 186 mph--- Buddfab streamliner.
Looks like you'll be in APS/G 125 the record here is 125 and depending who you race with is 135 @SCTA and 133 @ BUB.
lots of luck-- see you on the salt
cheers Bones

Well thats embarrasing, i havent even looked at the website since creating it as i have been so busy.

Thanks for the heads up, ps i have since decided to go in just A/G not APS.

See you soon.!

No psychic, just a psychotic.
