On the 125mph pass Kent took off and about 80 feet out he left a Black stripe...and a little cloud of dust..


My Internist says if it leaves a "Black stripe" that's a sign of "blood in the stool," and a failing anal sphincter.

Kent, get a colonoscopy immediately.

That's got to be one of the hardest launching door slammers I've ever seen.  It's like a watermelon seed through your fingers.

Well the electric bike is almost done being rebuilt with plenty of upgrades. Kent and crew have been burning the midnight oil to get this bike done and back to Bonneville. With the upgrades and rebuild Kent and crew will be looking to surpass the 179 mph mark in 2009.

A few pictures from this evenings work:

Front of the battery packs with all new wiring














I will try and snap a few more pictures tomorrow night.

We just got a phone call from Richard Hatfield of Lightning Motorcycles saying that the “Flying Banana Mk. II” just put down a 205.238 mph pass at the Southern California Timing Associations’ Speed Week at Bonneville. This pass makes Lightning the first electric motorcycle manufacturer/competitor ever to break the 200 mph mark, whether it be on the tarmac or at the salt flats. If verified during tomorrow’s second pass, the speed would shatter the outright land speed record of 176.434mph, which was set by Riches Nelson and his fully-streamlined Airtech Lightning Bolt electric motorcycle.

Lightning currently holds the AMA and FIM land speed records for the APS-Ω LSR class (A=special chassis, PS=partially streamlined, Ω=electric) for electric motorcycles weighing between 150kg and 300kg, after Paul Thede (of Race-Tech fame) took the Flying Banana Mk. I to 173.321 mph at Bonneville last year. This year according to SCTA protocols, Lightning’s bike has been impounded for the night, and the team will have another run tomorrow to solidify its record. The average of those two speeds will then stand as Lightning’s official speed, and if everything goes according to plan, Lightning will have raised the LSR mark for electric motorcycles into the 200 mph bracket.
