BRENDA SUE BECOMES FASTEST AMPUTEE
« on: October 29, 2017, 11:28:24 AM »
Brenda Sue runs 219MPH on her 1st full pass back riding the Vance/Forstall - Knecum Perf built 1650cc OG 239MPH record holder. Brenda becomes the fastest Amputee on a motorcycle. She did do this without her prosthetic. Congratulations to a very courageous women. I'm very proud of you.  She will try for 220 then call it quits for this race as they are under geared and went through in 5th and have no 520 rear sprockets.

Oh yes the tutu went along for the ride. She only uses the front brake and very carefully so as not to tuck the front end. Maybe a thumb brake for faster speeds next year.  WTG Brenda Sue, you are an inspiration to all of us.   :thumb: :thumb:  LSL
