That site is quite comical. Look for motorcycle crashes.

I do NOT believe that is possible. First off, his front tire comes back down to road at 140 MPH?? Second, most speedo senders are on the front wheel, so he would not be gaining sensor speed with the front tire off the ground from 50-140 MPH, third that hard of acceleration on the wheel, IMO would result in a serious case of road rash. :/

Um, Verndog.... ever heard of a Suzuki Hayabusa?? There is a guy with a turbo one that has been clocked at over 220. Check it out...

Here is another one that is even faster...

P.S., The new ZX14 kawasaki is even faster than a stock Busa......

That was my first thought also, Verndog. Then I thought that the speedo must be in KPH but I noticed that KPH is on the inner ring. The engine is turning 11000 rpm and he shifted 5 times so that makes it 6th gear so now I'm thinking that he really did do 220 mph.

Wonder what type bike that is.

Dont need to...logic still tells me he aint gunna pickup speed that fast on the rear tire without flipping over backwards without a wheely bar.. And then on top of that bring it down at 140 (and the front tire is now moving over 100 MPH slower then the back) NOT HAPPENIN.

Verndog , I suppose if someone was to lead you to a water hole when you was dry to the bone, you would refuse to take a drink.

You got that right...cause you never know who got there first.

Now...Troy...I suppose if someone were to write the word elephant on a ballon and let it go....you'd tell everyone you saw a flying elephant??

Obviously you've not spent much time on the rear wheel of a bike....oh thats right...you just got a trail 90 was it?? :rofl:

I've got road rash scars from flipping over backward at 50 MPH...nobody is going up at 50 and coming down at 140 that quick...not alive.

I own 75 Ducati 860gts, 85 ducati 650 alazzurra, 89 FJ 1200 (130hp and held the record for fastest roll on from 60-100mph for many years). Been riding since I was 12. Now too old to argue about a guy riding a turbo Busa......
