If there is any doubt that Buell's ECM adapts well to altitude these times should put that to rest even if they are not exactly stock for these bikes. Good job guys. My experience exactly on my 1125R. Bob T., high in the Rocky mountains of Utah.

Wow! That 1200 class might be my new favorite class. Not a bike in it I wouldn't love to have out in the garage...

Great job by all the riders and PPIHC for putting on another great show. The CR and the TT come by at 54 seconds. Robs S1 comes by right after that at 1 minute. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEM1ziZtgWc Forgot to add. Check out the pro truck at 5:15. We were crappin out pants when he was coming right at us. We were up on the left on the straight. (Message edited by snowscum on July 20, 2009)

High Country's Dalton on the 1125RTT at 16 mile, last curve on pavement. At this Point Tracey is at least 15 seconds behind.

Before being sho-ed away by Mountain police due to fans at lower sections being on the course when cars went through, I was positioned for a great shot of our bikes with appropriate signage on the mountain.

Cool pics Dave! I was hiking up to engineers corner, and almost there, when the Buells came flying by and caught me by surprise. I missed getting any pics of them! ARGH. I was hoping to maybe learn from Dalton his thoughts about the race and the bike. He obviously had a good lead most of the way but Greg Tracy found an opportunity to get by. How did the bike perform? What sections of the track were easy/difficult?

One of the best car videos of the peak race. The guy can drive like no other! He is coming next year to race in the open class and plans on getting the record back in the familys name. Rhys rules!
