what a weekend!
« on: July 19, 2011, 05:24:19 AM »
i had a great weekend, set 2 records and joined the 200mph club! a huge thank you to Bart Boucher and Eric Pacquette for a awesome weekend! i set the P-pp 750 record @ 129.5mph on barts 1974 triumph trident. then Eric offered me a ride on his 1990 gsx 1276cc turbo and i run a 236.9mph for the aps-bf 1650 record! to be 24 years old and have the opportunities that i have had, im still on cloud 9!

Great job Thomas.  It is slways great to see you run on a fast bike.  Get that side car going Eddie.  Both our bikes came back needing a little work, but with 3 new records.  We are happy with the APS/G-1000/4 record at 205 mph, but with the issues we had on the pass, there was much left on the table.  It was a lot of fun seeing the Kawi's be fast though.

2008 Kawasaki ZX-10R (4 200 MPH Clubs)
2008 Kawasaki EX-250R (Multiple ECTA and LTA records)
131 Land Speed Records set since 2008
125 Land Speed Racing records (including 3 Worlds Fastest Speeds) set since 2008.

I hurt all kinds of stuff this weekend, never got a real pass. I've had a few meets with zero issues, I can't complain. I'll have it fixed up for Maxton.

Here's that slick bike;
