Rich Adams piloted the old girl to a 10:781 @ 122.88. She was a little off due to high humidity and heat and a bog out of the hole. Rich has run 10:22 @128 at Island on a good weather day. The Helmet cam is a great tool. This video is what I needed.

Steve,
Yes a Fuel bike helmet cam is in the cards for 2013. It is a great concept as well as a defacto Tach playback tool! Based on some bad news gotten today Island may be closed for good. I hope not as John and the rest of the folks worked hard to get through these bad economic times and were very gratious to the bikes. The Fuel bike is ready for opening day and it may be at New England Dragway with its long shutdown. Have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

John that is great news! I agree on all of your points. I am happy to hear you are healing. My wounds as you may hve heard will take longer to heal. I will say this however, nothing like the twist of a throttle on a nitro Harley to take a man away from the troubles in his life and I intend on lots of therapy God willing. With NE getting the first inaugual NHRA event this year watch how nice the track gets with the new makeover. It has always been an excellant place to race as I use to ge there with ECRA as well as for local races back in the 80's.

I appreciate the devotion that you guys have given to Ironhead Sportsters for many years even when the Evo came on the scene, you kept the Iron alive..

Gentlemen,
We all have our hurdles to jump. Some we see in the distance so we can prepare our game, and some come very unexpectedly. Some we clear, some we graze, and some cause us to topple and fall. We can on occasion get up and resume the race with full knowledge of where we went wrong and hurdle the next gate with ease and confidence. Then there is the hurdle that you encounter when you get knocked for a loop mentally and physically and question your own inner self for the answer on why. It is that fall that allows you realize how many lives you have touched along the way when you see how many hands were there to pick you up and point you back in the right direction. Perform a random act of kindness to someone. I can tell you first hand that it comes back to you ten fold and then some. Thank you my friends I will never forget what you have done for me. Have a Happy and safe New Year
