Worlds Fastest Motorcycle PERIOD ! ! !
« on: August 19, 2004, 05:52:34 PM »
Sam Wheeler today backed up yesterdays run of 330 mph aboard the MR Turbo equipped MC Streamliner with a top speed today of 334 mph! !

The new outright MC record speed is now over 332mph !!

This reset's the record that was long held by the Easyrider's Streamliner piloted by Dave Campos.

That record was done with two old school HD Shovelhead engines and the record I believe was set in 1990 and was 322+ mph.


Way too go Sam  !!

Congrats.
First sidecar over 200mph @ 218+ also the fastest ever record!
Fastest Open bike over a mile from 2005-2008 @ 259.393
Fastest NAKED record El Mirage @ 240+ come get some!
Fastest bike ever at ELMO 240.197  "NAKED BABY"
Congrats to Richard Assen 260.7

Nobody can be so amusingly arrogant as a builder who has just discovered an old idea and thinks it is his own.

I'm more impressed with 251.++ mph street bike. There, I said it. (doesn't mean i'm not impressed though).

Throw a 500 HP turboed Busa engine in that streamliner and the new record would be shattered! :yes:

That is a great accomplishment. Last time at the salt, I remember they were just trying to get a decent run from that thing. Give Terry Kizer credit for supporting some really fast efforts recently - Rich  Yancy's bike too.

While first taking off or coming to a stop, how does the rider maintain balance? Are there other wheels that come out?

Awesome job.  334mph  WOW!!! :shock:   :shock:

Even though it is a streamliner, it is powered with a motorcycle engine and has 2 wheels therefore a totally enclosed motorcycle.

This is opposed to an open wheeled motorcycle where the rider is in full view and sitting upright (sort of) going 251mph+

Either way, I would give my left cajone to drive either one of them.

if it wasn't for the rule changes to motorcycle racing in the 50's regarding fairings, we would probably all be riding in a streamlined motorcycle...  :twisted:

A significant accomplishment as a result of huge effort.
Congratulations.
Anybody know how the rudder is controlled?
Is it a trim tab or is it actively connected to the steering?
Seems to me that it would affect countersteering in  a big way.

Personally, I think the term "motorcycle" and "bike" needs to be re-defined.

I also thought I was gonna read about or see a street bike doing insane speeds!!! :roll:
