      What did it run?

  2. Aaron Green says:

    No time. It did not complete the run with the tires on the pavement. Sort of did the “road rash slide” at the end. Super tech at that place too, note the lack of any gloves on the ill-fated rider. Hands turn into hamburger real quick when you bail with no gloves………..
