Valkyrie best run: 13.073s @ 100.51s (not caught on video)

TBR's Odin - King of all Valkyries
Back in 1997 Two Brothers Racing thought it would be cool to get some real horsepower out of a Honda Valkyrie...so we slapped our Exhaust system and a couple of Superchargers on one. Filmed at LA County Raceway with Kent Kunitsugu doing the riding. Sorry for the poor quality but the raw footage was lost to the passage of time...
FJR1300: My New Bike
I loved my Burgie but I kind of out grew it and my wife would not allow me to get into MBS (Multiple Bike Syndrome) so I traded the Burgie (along with cash) for a Yamaha FJR1300.
Now maybe the Harley guys will wave back...nah.
