Dave sat out the entire race season in 2009, waiting for parts, pistons etc. for the Knucklehead. He hit the dirt in May '10 with a new motor in the old chassis, this time running in the 1000cc class. In June, he blew another front cylinder, this time without catastropic damage. He was back out in July, getting the bugs worked out and work it out he did. He managed to put over five mile per hour on the existing record. More to come yet this season...
AHHH..Optimism. Went out for a record run and fourth gear was missing. Dave coasted through the lights at a whopping 45mph..hoping to fix the problem and go out for another run. Didn't happen. The Knuckle needed to be back in the shop to diagnose the problem. It's fixed and we'll be back at it in October!
