  7. My hornet does that on unsealed roads, with infant pillions - why not try and go FAST?

    Anyone ever se the footage of a crazy guys from the 30s? who tried every stunt ever known - onluding strapping himself inside the front of a special train - taking it to 600kmh and then stopping it over 10metres (thats METRES).

    His eyes almost burst, he had bleeding from everything at the front of his body - inlcuding eyes, will see if i can find some pics...he was nuts, this was only one of the thngs he did.

  14. Just goes to show that there is a time and a place for going fast - Lake Gairdner March 6-10 :). And for those people that claimed a stock Aprilia RS250 has a higher top speed than the current record of 209kph - here's your chance to actually prove it (you can make yourself famous at the same time).
