It was one of those days when the engine performance, tuning, gearing, rider ability and weather conditions all aligned.

Can’t begin to imagine what the ride was like. That fella must have balls of steel.

Big respect to all involved. Awesome results

Still astounded he was on a 4-speed box - do you know gear he was on for that final run?

If I could hit 87mph then I'd be seriously chuffed. The thought of adding a further 40mph on top of that is absolutely mental!

Am I the only one that is amazed to see that at speeds around 100mph it takes an extra 10hp to get another 10mph?
