*365.000 MPH up...386.900 MPH back

"...It was late Saturday afternoon, September 25, 2010 at the Bonneville Salt Flats when veteran pilot Rocky Robinson strapped into the Top 1 Ack Attack streamliner and proceeded down the 11 mile (17.6 KM) course on his way to make history.

By the end of the day, Mike, Rocky and the crew realized their dream had become a reality as they became the "world's fastest motorcyclist*, averaging 376.156 MPH / 601.849KPH over two successive runs. ..."
TOP1 Oil/Ack Attack streamliner




900 BHP worth of Turbo-Huffed twin Busa's

I was talking to Denis Manning at the International Motorcycle Show last year and he thinks that they can do 400mph. It's mostly a matter of gearing he told me.

That's the main reason I go to the show the last few years. They always have the bike on display.

Rocky had a 394 exit speed and was still accelerating. And it was in 4th gear! They had problems shifting one of the engines into 5th, so they just geared it to the hilt in 4th. The race to 400 is going to be interesting.
