    That's not a bike, it's a rocket. What power adder do they use?

    Superchargers can be used on them but I don't know if any do. McBride doesn't. Just nitro....

    That rider position has to take some setting used to, I would think. You're literally lying down at a 45 degree angle. With no cage, no real protection for the rider, at those crazy top speeds. Insane to launch to 250mph in a tick over 5 and a half seconds. :eek:

    Absolutely insane! I couldn't imagine doing 200+ let alone on a motorcycle.

    Ive been pass 160 and oh what a rush. Any modern liter or big bore will run 200 unrestricted nowadays as long as you got the balls to hang on. It’s not the speed that kills you, its the whatever you hit and the sudden stop.

    I had a friend who was local sheriff down in Florida and he suggested we meet up on a big long road north of Barberville to see what my ZX-14 would do. 178 when I decided enough already. I let off and started to come up out of my tuck and quickly decided that was a bad idea. So, I've been faster on a bike than a car.

    Funny, when I was stationed ta ft Bragg I took my roommate to the drags at rockingham for his first look at ihra. We were walking through the pits and a top fuel bike was lit up about 30 ft from us and Ray jumped out of his skin. Scared the shit out of him. The first pass of a top fuel funny car was hysterical to watch him see as well. He couldn’t understand why it would shake his chest-heart and lungs so bad when we were in the stands. Always fun to take a newcomer to see a top fuel car(or bike) run
