Ok, let me rephrase this................I believe the guy to the left of Ricky Gadsen (in the white leathers since the lady person in the black leathers is clearly Troy Polumalu's stunt double) is Galaxieman.

I got home last night around 11pm.  I'm restricted from stating or implying anything about the outcome until after Kawasaki releases the results.  They said that should happen as soon as today or tomorrow, but our confidentiality agreement runs beyond that in case they take longer.  As such, I'll be working on my long-ass write-up of the event and editing pictures for the next couple of days.  I will however post some pictures as I get to them in editing, and can say I made multiple sub-10-second passes in excess of 140mph.  Additionally, they had a FUSE camera crew there filming for a show to be aired on SPEED TV some time in August or September, so my write-up will have to be somewhat limited until I see how everything shakes out in the final edits...

Hopefully the passes were fast enough for you to have a 2012 ZX-14R in your garage.   ;D
