  1. I'm having issues post links so here's a paste from Jalopnik.com

    If you think guys like Sean Kennedy are tough for setting a 263 mph record in a cracked-out Hennessey Ford GT, try doing something like that on a motorcycle.
    That's exactly what rider Jennifer Robertson did this at this weekend's Mile. Let's all say congratulations to Robertson, because she is now the world's fastest female motorcycle rider in a standing mile. According to our pal photographer Zerin Dube, Robertson set a speed record of 243.6 mph on her Suzuki Hayabusa.
    Robertson is definitely a woman after our own hearts here at Jalopnik. According to this profile in Motorcycle USA, she's a veteran motorcycle racer who pilots streamliners at the Bonneville Salt Flats and currently holds a land speed record at 376 mph aboard the Ack Attack streamliner. Congrats on another awesome record!
