It’s practice day at our illustrious local race track PIR (Portland Intl Raceway). Consisting of nine turns, all but two are right handers. In order to make up for this deficiency in design, they added a ridiculously long front straight. For those of us rocking sub 100hp bikes, the front straight can make for a very long and lonely trip. This weekend will test the metal, and lithium ions, of our Team Icon Brammo bike on that very front straight as they battle it out in round two of the TTXGP. Fingers crossed!
