Congratulations on the article. You have my respect and envy for the riding - wow!
Does everyday driving seem like slow motion ? :-)
Wow, 228 mph on a bike? Certainly quite an accomplishment.
A great article about you...man, what a hobby!

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.

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.
