Lars took up a position at the cockpit bulkhead. He was making critical adjustments to the steering linkage, necessary for assuring that the steering control stick returns to center after turning movements.
Chris Greene was here taking things much slower than he did at Bonneville speed week. He was certified at 176.902 mph on his stock motorcycle. Today he was carefully packing speed chutes in the hangar.
