Above are the names of the riders (and sponsors)
that are the fastest sit-on riders in the world,
no streamliners.

 One (1) listing PER PERSON.
 Unless otherwise listed,
 their single fastest speed
 (Lifetime)

 Bonneville is flying start

 Some are ¼ mile standing start.

 Track lengths include: ¼ mile, ½ mile, 1 mile ,
 1.3 mile, 1.5 mile, distance not recorded and
 Bonneville style unlimited distance.

 Racing surfaces include: asphalt,
 concrete, dirt and salt.

 **(The Finnish speeds were run on a track
 with a maximum racing length of
 about 1.0 mile, but some racers used
 less that that length to achieve their results.)

 It is apparent from the track listings and dates that
 motorcycle LSR (Land Speed
 Racing) is now a true international sport.

 When will we see Japan, China, Brazil
 and the return of Russia ?



 Thanks to PiPPi of Sweden for the Drag information.

 Quickest and fastest bike list update - Page 91, etc

 Quickest and fastest bike list update - Page 98

 Thanks to Speedduck for the Finnish results.

 ** Conditional results, see below

 iB::Aihe::Suomen "virallinen" +200mph lista

 Mr. Duck lists the results), and gives us the link.
 (It is not clear to me if these results are based
 on a timing trap, radar, GPS, data or other method,
 but we will keep them on the list until
 there is a complete clarification)

 All speeds listed are OFFICIAL speeds.
 No GPS from “individuals,â€

Not all timing organizations use the same
 speed measuring equipment.

 If you have additions or corrections,
 please FIRST PM me, or post.


 Ride safe, be lucky and fast in 2017 !

Thanks Ryan and Greg. I'm trying to find as much info and get as much history of that bike (methanol) as possible.

I have heard that number several times,
but I cannot find a mention in any Bonneville results,
either qualifying passes or record runs. 

I suspect those speeds are taken from "on board"
data systems, which we do  not use for this list.

Can you point my to ANY source for these superb speeds
that comes from some independent source ?

I remember seeing the alcohol bike run at Maxton.

The bike was impressive, but not the driving or the speeds.

The bike was sold, and has changed hands at at least three(3) times,
and - to my knowledge - has never performed up to potential.

The 232 number is pretty well documented,
but I have never seen an independent source
for 242 or 243 mph.

If the bigger numbers are from data,
then they are probably a very
accurate "instantaneous" number.

This list calls for "independent" numbers.............
