    Congratulations on the article. You have my respect and envy for the riding - wow!

    Does everyday driving seem like slow motion ? :-)

    Actually, I'm that old man who always goes 5mph below the limit you wished you could kick out of your way.

    Wow, 228 mph on a bike? Certainly quite an accomplishment.
    A great article about you...man, what a hobby!

    228mph was easy compared to trying to hit the 500yd gong with my AR-10

    Excellent article. Congrats!

    One of my buds on shift clocked a guy doing 172 on a crotch rocket on Highway 7 once. He didn't engage him though, it was too risky.
    He did meet him at his moms house though and arrest him and confiscate the bike.

    Over 200 MPH +
    That's moving right along.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    A thrill? Butt was puckered and sucking seat. Was scared to death when the end of the runway came just a little too fast and my only prayer was "please let the brakes work Lord."

    Great job to you and the crew. And by the way, you're nuttier than squirrel poop.

    Yes, well if you think 228 is nutty, then going 300+ is insane. Building a Streamliner with 800hp Turbo'd motor for the 1.5 mile at Loring, Maine. It's a 2year project and the chassis is on the welding table. I'll keep you posted.

    It's an old B-52 base at Loring, Maine with a 12,000 ft runway. Going fast is contagious and addictive.
