Lamont and I would look to see what we could do with the M109 at the drags. But reading as much as I could find it looks like the AMA would have to approve the M109 to be in "Hot Rod Cruiser". It sounds like a big deal. And I see where Victory just got there bikes approved. Plus it looks like only a handful of bikes are showing up in that class. And because the M109 is overhead cam it looks like it takes a weight penalty versus the Warrior.

Anyone have any good info or a good source?

Had to get up and do some reading.

Looks like the Suzuki Boulevard is approved for Hot Rod Cruiser.

Here is a link to a PDF file that has the rules. Go to 4.3.2 page 69-74

http://www.amaprostar.com/rulebook/06_rulebook.pdf

Rules don't seem too tough. Basically they are trying to keep a stock bike.

Things I noticed:

Air shifter okay
No wheelie bars
There is a slight revision that appears to alter the weight rules.

We need to work on something. Lamont and I are pretty jammed until we get back from Sturgis in August. We need to do it with enough notice that we can get a bunch of folks to show up.

I have no problem letting the company pay for it if its in the $1,000 range.

Forget all that rules babble for bracket classes...Just go to your local track on a street night when they have heads up grudge racing. Nothing is more fun than that.

Anyone in the NY/NJ area that wants to hook up one day to do just this, let me know.

I want to see which level we can do this on. Sure it will be fun to do some bracket stuff but if we think we have a shot at being competitive on the top level and we can do it on a budget then we might be convinced to give it a shot.

After all you gotta have somebody to try and knock off the throne to make it fun:

9.161 ET 145.30MPH

I recently sold an ironhorse with a 111 s&s and rigid 280 rear end. I can tell you from racing from light to light with vtx and sport bike guys. I could always take them up to 80- 85 mph. After that they could pass me. If you run with someone who really learns how to launch a bike like that he will take you out of the hole. The HP and torque is better on the s&s and most of the bikes are going to be 100lbs lighter. They just don't have the handling or top end that the 109 and vtx does.
