You know how you have that one thing in life you want to do before you die just because you think that is the coolest thing to beable to say you did it? Well today I was talking with a friend of mine about this dream and he offered to help me make my dream come true. 8)

I first asked him if he knew of any way that I could go 200mph on a bike if I didn't own a bike that would go that fast. Now the Boss Hoss should go that fast but not with me on it. I've been to 155mph and that was a pretty wild ride. :eek: Anyway this guy runs 200 mph all the time, so much so that they call him "Mr. 200MPH" and I figured he might know of some place that would let you do that kind of like the places that let you drive a NASCAR (for a price). Much to my surprise he offered to let me do it on his world record bike this August. :hot:

He just built a new CBR that he plans on setting another world record with and he said he could bring his CBR1100XX to the track and I could run the mile with it. Now he runs 200mph in the 1/4 @ 7.25 but I think I could get it done in a mile as long as I don't wet myself doing it. :yikes:
I'm already freaking out just thinking about it and the thought of having a bike with 550+ rear wheel hp between my legs just makes me nuts. :D

Looks like I need to find some leathers and boots for this ride and hope I don't hair out before I hit the 200mph mark. :eek:

If you're reading this Kent you have no idea what you just did to me. I may not sleep for a week now. :bigthumbsup: :doorag:

Good Luck "LM"..I wouldn't have the bottle for that sort of speed on a bike..phew!..have a car capable of 300+Kmph but my 'will to live' starts to make it's presence felt (rather strongly) after about 260Kmph. Be safe!

Sounds very cool. I don't think you will have any problem getting to 200. Remember, you only live once so go for it! :bigthumbsup:

wow that is freaking awesome :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup:

Mine would get to drive the Nascar thing...but really get to drive....not go out there and follow someone around the track or have someone telling me every move to make...think Tom Cruise in Days of Thunder when he tries out at the beginning....he rode up on a bike :D

man that is too cool .... i would be so psyched up .... awesome :bow:

Went by to see a friend of mine... I saw him the other night in the parking lot of a local grocery store and he was oogling my 109 and saying how awesome it looked...

He was the first person in the 7's in pro 5.0 ....then the first in the 6's in pro 5.0

Heres his accomplishments http://www.hardcore50.com/racer_profiles/DougMangrum.htm

Good Luck when it gets here Lamont 8)

It's great to hear you're able to fulfil a lifelong dream like this.
Make sure you get someone to take good photo's or video, and make sure you have something to celebrate with afterwards. I'm thinking Scotch and a good Cigar would likely suite the occation.
Congrats man.

Go Big Or Go Home !!!!!

The double ton is definately cool, but it pales in comparison to going around the banking at daytona at 186mph on a superbike in a drafting battle with 3 or 4 guys.

Maybe you should give Burt Munro (worlds fastest indian) a call. And he only wore his wedding strides. Had no leathers :D

I'm sure you are right but I don't think I have the skill for that. I know my limits and I'm not even close to being that good of a rider. ::)
