I feel the need...

Quick post of my coworker's significant other, Scott McCleod. Scott just returned from Bonneville Salt Flats, where he set a class record of 209 mph on his turbocharged Hayabusa... Scott ran 215 mph last year (if my memory is right). Said the salt lacked traction this year... I think Scott is only the nineteenth or twentieth person ever to join the 200 mph club on a bike...

Third picture is Scott's record run. Second picture is the morning back-up run, and the top picture is the bike in impound until it's checked. Great job, Scott and Jana. The coolest thing is they are a truly two-person team.

Oh yeah, how does one know that they are losing traction at 209 mph? When the GPS says 209 mph, and the wheel spin sensor says 269 mph!!!

You might recognize the starter, who played "himself" in "World's Fastest Indian".

I would measure my speed by the length of the poo trail I left behind me.
