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:


Good luck hanging on!

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



500 HP Busa engine probably wouldn't go much, if any faster. While Many may not remember, Terry Kizer put up almost 500 HP numerous times in the mid to late 90's with a zx-11 powerplant. Back then the motors may not have been able to stand up to a top speed run, and if my memory serves me correctly, he cracked a wastegate or header one year while on the dyno, but still, he made almost 500 ponies with zx-11 technology like 6 years ago. He has been making HUGE power for many years more than most any other players have even been in the turbo game. There may be better systems available now, but no one has been around and pioneered as much as Terry Kizer, as the record shows. :moped:  :thumb:

That is correct.  :thumb:  On a side note, are you allowed to run nitrous on a fuel bike for land speed, using the nitrous as "fuel"??

So, what does the rudder do and how is it controlled?

I'm not sure , but at crazy speeds like 332+ mph , I hope they don't go to full deflection  :shock:

My guess is it helps during low speed steering and/or to help get it upright off of the skids .

I'm thinking it is there to aid countersteering.
Countersteering works by steering the contact patch out from under the bike's center of gravity causing the bike to lean over and turn.
On a bike with such a long wheelbase this process must be pretty slow.
The rudder could help tip the bike and cause it to turn.
Sure would take a bunch of experimentation to get this right.
All that is just theory.
Maybe also helps in crosswinds?

How about cause everything fast has wings???? :lol:  :lol:

I am sure the verticle is for stability and the other part for low speeds like said above....

But I have been wrong before... :lol:

I don't think that bike is going to do much leaning over or turning at 300+ MPH. I believe it is to steer with much like a plane, but I am just simple folk!  :D

Thanks for putting that up Greg
Have a Harley, spent lots of money on it, thought I had a fast motorcycle, bought a Busa, realized all I had was a fast Harley, not a fast motorcycle!
