  • new motorcycle land speed record

    BUB Racing's Chris Carr Breaks Speed Record - Land Speed Racing - Motorcycle USA

    it looks more like a bullet train, but its got two wheels and that's good enough for me. 367 miles per hour (587 odd km/h), which is pretty damn quick (ed. duh...)

      Chuck Norris is 1/8th Cherokee. This has nothing to do with ancestry, the man ate a fucking Indian.

            Probably, but I'd say any sort of wheelie would be a brown pants moment

                    ... the other two wheels are spares?

                        My guess is the skids on the sides retract once it gets moving.
                        (kinda like Darren's trainer wheels on his CBR250 for paraplegics.)

                        I think its as much of a motorbike as the drag bikes are.... (by which I mean its a bit of a stretch.)
                        (but that said... in a similar way its like saying an F1 racer is a car.)
                        All are highly impractical at anything except the specific task they are designed for.... but where do you draw the line? (obviously thats the call of the FIM, not PSB )

                            Do they have different catergories? Asin if Tyson were to go for the land speed record on the Turbo Busa would he be competing against that?

                            Honest question I have no knowledge in this area.

                              Don't you hate it when they have extra wheels.
