Let's add HIRO KOISO on a sit-on
Harley Davidson at Bonneville in 2018.
At 260.804mph

On this list, Hiro would be 37th !

Jon McKibben in the HONDA HAWK streamliner:  286.556 mph in 1971.  A reported 1972 speed of 305mph in 1972, but I can't substantiate that speed at this point.......Sponsored by American Honda, built be Reaction Dynamics and powered by two Honda CB750 engines (air cooled) turbo-charged and methanol.

Great new addition to the list !

Guy Martin riding one of
Jack Frost's Holeshot Busas gen 2
 put up a 257.727 mph backed up with
a 256.491 mph so that puts him well
up the list as his opening entry.
