RICHARD BROWN WROTE: "The video shows run 5 on the salt flats, this was the first run we made averaging over 300MPH, with a peak of 335MPH. Initially you will see the the bike being towed for a short distance followed by a release signal and the tow truck swerving off line, the bike is then coasting at about 40MPH during which time I retract the skids and await the "In zone" signal that tells me I have reached the optimum position relative to the timming traps to ignite the rocket motor, take a look at the speed the mountains in the background are passing by!
