    You need AWD :-). I can nail 3.5 - 3.7 all day in any weather.

      If I stay on the throttle for a second or so after crossing the line, that will give me the 0-200 or 100-200.
      They don't like this lol, I wanted to see if my last Harley could crack 200 (trapped at 175) it took a bit longer than anticipated on my end

      Got promptly reminded where the shutoff area starts by the Marshall. Which is fair enough.

        You just proved my point

          How are you guys adjusting for weather when you make your runs?

            I'm sure Jack Nicholson adjusts the climate control if it's a bit warm.....

              You mean with Dragy? It gives you temp and DA only.

                Density altitude?

                I had a quick look and only saw reference to altitude itself?

                  An example.

                    So thats through the app? I didnt look at that, just the unit specs. I guess the app uses weather data from "somewhere" but depending on the source update time (my local weather station only feeds data to BOM once per day) the conditions could be very different to what the app is "seeing" unless the data is current and accurate

                    Interesting stuff though, quite a bit nicer than the original G Tech which I still own haha.

                      good question. I checked 2 other runs. Opposite directions 2 minutes apart and the temp, height and DA values are all different. I.e. 1c, 1metre and DA by 3m. I’ve no idea where it gets the info from.

                        Altitude comes from the gps in the Dragy.
                        The temp is from the weather data on your phone, by location.
                        Dragy app calculates the density altitude using that data.
                        It doesn't apply any corrections, just gives you the data.
