Kinda hard to take pictures while riding though. Thanks to Bob for letting Brooke bring a Buddy and sorry for grinding up the belt side cover, oh and to Ed for using the trailer.

Wasn't Brooke taking off all the plastic anyway, the belt cover was just a head start.

How did the Buddy do?

There wasn't a Stella on the track that could keep up, from what I understand.

Now that I think about it, there wasn't a Hayabusa on the track that could keep up either.

Chris is going to kick my ass but it did better than I thought it would.

The acceleration or re-acceleration sucks, when you let off the gas then gun it again there is nothing there, but most automatics are like that anyway.

Suspension isn't ready for the track, way too soft. Kept scraping the belt cover, 12" tires would for sure cure that, but a better rear shock and front fork would help.

The seating position was actually pretty decent, needed a peg or grip tape to keep my feet in place but other than that is was pretty comfortable.

If there were a way to stop it from grinding I'd ride it again. (same goes for chris's mom)

I'd bet money that I could beat any Stella with a Buddy! Probably not a 'Busa though..
