You should see the full video with all of the telemetry from the bike overlayed.  The G-force indicator shows every time the boost runs away from it even ant 225 mph it breaks loose.  Great run Tom.  Looking forward to seeing you at The Maine Event next summer.

Tom --- I know I busted your baxxs after the 249 pass ... it was ugly and I was shocked when the speed was called out ... I told Eric that was one very fast very ugly pass ... You recovered very well and you have the evidence. You were correct, you did not wheelie went you shifted second.

Joe  it was a baddddddd pass but im still learing alot on these turbo bikes! if the bike had a boost controller, which it did and it failed to work on the 249 run!  27psi in 1st gear makes for a hand full to drive  :evil:

249 isnt a baaaad a pass ... You were never out of shape and you adapted to the power that the red bike must make. I have never been over 153 and I have nothing but respect for anyone that can go 250 and make it look easy.

Thomas,
As fast as you were on the bike, my daughter wishes to thank you for your speediness in getting her dog collected and put in the trailer.  (Apparently the dog means more to her than her brother).  She also asked me to apologize for the manner in which she "asked" you to "please" do so.  That's what she really meant.....I think.
