I've longed to become a certifies member of the 200 mph club, but it just is not been working out where I live now. Every couple years a promoter sets up a mile run at the Springerville, Arizona airport, as they have a 1.5 mile runway. But the airport elevation is 7,000 feet and I doubt my bike would do 200 at that elevation, close, but close doesn't get me into the club! The next closet I have heard of one being in Colorado and the other in Texas. Both are a far ways for me to travel and get the support I need to make a few runs at it.I would still like to ride a large sport bike, flat out, top speed, one time, just to see what that feels like.
After saying that, if I ever got the chance I'd probably chicken out before I got to 150, but that would be okay too.
Good suggestion. I've never been to the flats. I probably don't want to invest that much into it, rather just make a few adjustment preps on the bike and squeeze into some leathers to do it on pavement, but my grandpa always said, "never say never"!!You're not that far from the salt flats in Utah, are you? I haven't been out there since the mid 60's when I was just a kid so I don't know how much it could have changed but I remember the word "wasteland" seemed to fit.
Who knows, it might all be apartment buildings and churches now.
