"GREG WATTERS" 253mph

Post by ROSS BROWN » Mon Sep 10, 2012 5:27 pm

Yesterday Greg Watters went 256mph at the WORLD OF SPEED meeting at Bonneville, and backed up the run today with a 250mph
Apperantly setting the fastest run on a sit on bike in SCTA history of 253mph..
Kim Krebs also ran 220mph ,earning herself a red hat.
Way to go, the pair of ya's .....
and still the "SHOOT OUT " left...
IT IS ALL A RACE AGAINST TIME.
TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE.

HOW FAST CAN YOU GO ?

Congratulations, well done guys!

I can't imagine what it would be like on 2 wheels at those speeds.....on the salt!

Thank all
Actually surprised me when i heard the speed, knew it was faster than i had been before but it was the first pass with the bike running well and after the 750 did not seem to have the same rpm range , kept hitting the limiter :lol:
had the go pro on : http://youtu.be/VrbgNNETjBY


Kim reset the record again on the 750 now faster than my 750 records at 229mph with 2 runs at nearly the same speed

Jim gave up the ride on my busa as a naked bike for Neill to have a shot at a red hat , which he did in fine style with consecutive 224mph passes

Salt was realy good, we should rethink just how dry we need it to run, there was a lake to drive through to get to the dry pits and track
surface was damp and could make a wet pad with a foot scuff, and it had great grip and gave good handling, maybe concrete dry is a pie in the sky and we should accept its a one in 10 yr nicety but not a necessity to race
