Aussie Chap
« on: September 09, 2007, 07:13:42 PM »
Anyone know how he did, #519, I saw him make his first run at I think 171mph but the bike is much more capable. He was helped/hosted by the Ack Attack boys from San Jose.

His name is Richard Assen and he ended up running a time of 204 mph ( I think ) and he will stay to run the WOS event.

Great guys and the potential for 240-250+ speeds

Good luck Richard!

Scott,

Due to the engine/electrical issues we had at Speedweek we did not have enough time to make a showing at the Bub's meet early when the salt was better, we did manage to run over 241 in the wet salt however Jason was there early and made two great passes before he hurt his engine and was not only rewarded with better salt he also won 10K for having the fastest naked bike at about 225? and the fastest faired bike at 241+

We showed up on Wednesday for our first run.

Jason did awesome and won the big money we however did set the second fastest FIM record at 238+ pending FIM sactioning.

We will not make the WOS event however we will make the next El Mirage meet.

I saw the pics and the build info for your bike, looks like it is coming together nicely.

John

PS, Michelle says hello also.

 Aha!......you should know better than to point that out Gazza , if they were born over the ditch , live here and are doing any good , they're one of ours . Born there , doing well here but still a @#%*# head let's say for example Russell Crowe , then they're a Kiwi . I was just over in the STATE of New Zealand...they like to refer to us as "living on the West Island"......no one got my accent jokes there strangely enough............
