Daughter at the drag strip!

Very proud of her! First time out! Launching at 8500-9000 rpm. No lift on the shifts. Best time was 8.92 at 78mph. Lots of 9.0's Yes I know she should have been wearing something to cover her ankles! She wants a quick shifter now.

I hate having to do that but this is so wrong!
No gloves, small shoes with ankles exposed, torn jeans, visor open, glasses and a jacket that looks like a regular coat with no abrasion resistance.
On a regular day it would be a bad idea, in a race setting this is madness.

I'm astonished that she was allowed on the track like that but what's even worse is that you would let her.
I mean don't protect yourself if you don't want to but don't let your kids ride like that!

I really hope she never crashes but please, get her some proper gear! At least for the drag strip/track!

Now that this is said, I don't know much about drag racing but those launches looked quite clean!
Also, what's that exhaust? it sounds awesome!

Wow!.... what zegzao said. The dudes she's racing against just have t-shirts on. Don't know what the rest of the track looks like but near the start there are giant cracks.

Parents: This is exactly what you DON'T allow your kids to do!

Well in todays world, parents allow their kids to do whatever they want. Times have changed.

I totally appreciate the fact that she is running at the track - but she does need to have all the gear IMO.

I'm surprise they (organizers) allow anyone to run like that. S*** happens. At the track you absolutely want all the gear, even if it's not required.

(bolding mine)

This x1000!
And I'll go a step further: I wouldn't be proud of my daughter, I'd be ashamed for not having taught her right, invested in some basic safety gear, and then insisted she wear it.
Those videos should serve as an example of what NOT to do!


Riding around and racing like that is cool.....until it isn't!


Horrible. Just absolutely horrible.

Nice videos bro.

I'm not going to rip you apart about the gear like everyone else. Not everyone is ATGATT and some people can't look past that.

There is some pleasure (very risky pleasure) in riding light of gear.
The most important piece of gear is your head. if you ride with the wrong attitude or beyond your skills, no gear will save you.

If you ride with the wrong attitude or beyond your skills, then you should not be riding any bike at all. Because it is just a matter of time until .....
