Here it is, could not edit/cut the beginning, so jump to 36sec mark to save some time.

wheel lifts at the 4268' mark @ 266mph, shut it down and began to brake.  Prepare yourself for the black coating when you see it...

Wow! Awesome video Bill...fastest wheelie I am sure also shocked

Can't believe the damage he has from it washing out on the newer service, from pausing and restarting the video he went down about 67 mph and that part of the shut down was like a cheese grader!

Can't wait to see you at the PRI show! Rest up and heal up!

When and where are you racing next?

John,
good idea tap-tap-tap-tap...  start-stop-start-stop...

I was using the slider before, and it looked like 118mph at 1:15 (bike up), then 37mph at 1:16(bike down)

tap-tap-tapping gives info between 1:15 & 1:16;
Like you say, it looks like about 67mph when the bike went down.

Karl,

I would bet it happened so fast it knocked him silly (have to be silly to run three hundred on a bike) and he was just along for the slide at that time..from his list of injuries it sounds like he was "in the bike" for a bit when it first went down compared to my wreck where I came off the bike..?  Bill?

Heal up fish man!!

John, I would agree,, seems like he stayed with/in the bike for some number of feet during the slide.

His left foot may have hung on the peg in the fairing,,, that seems to make sense of the extensive left foot damage.  If he was clear of the bike a basic slide like that should not have wore thru his boot..
 Just my thoughts...

Glad Bill is well and on the mend.

Hope everyone has a safe and Happy Thanksgiving

Your credentials are so much longer than your wise messages.  Perhaps you could make more of those class record fit on one line.  And put the personal contact info in your profile.  Just a thought.  Never had that many records myself.  Wouldn't know how to handle it.  Happy turkey day!

I think you can see where he left the bike at time mark 1:18. That is where the RPMs went to zero, indicating that he pulled out the engine kill plug (attached to his wrist) as he departed the bike. So he slid for 2-3 seconds at 60-80 mph (about 250') which is not a good thing. The bike slid another 10 seconds before stopping.

Also, you can see the rescue SUV driving at a high speed past the bike, indicating that Bill stopped some time before the bike did.

Watching the left side pop up shows the speed digitally at 101 right at the pavement transition ... then drops off dramatically ... it is painful to watch. Obviously, the change in surface somehow upset the bike while braking.

First, utmost respect for all LSR bike riders
Second, double  respect for Bill going 311 on a sit on bike.

Looks like they may need to mill that concrete to asphalt transition for the bikes.

Good luck Bill with the recovery.

Wow shocked, great footage of the run/crash.  Looks like the new surface was a bit too fresh and the oil from it was a tad slippery. evil

I didn't have any issues with the new surface and didn't hear of anyoneelse except Bill's laydown.

Maybe just bad luck.

Dodge bad luck.

I was impressed with the acceleration. Look at the time vs speed.

I'm glad that Bill wears good gear, especially his helmet.  Hitting the ground in such an unexpected fashion from ~4' imparts a tremendous force.

Bill, that was a great piece of riding to sense the wheelie and back off.  Heal quickly.
