All I can say is he is one brave mofo. It took him once he got the bike straight, 23 seconds to get it up to 220mph. WOW

I have seen this one before somewhere. Love watching it over and over. And over again. LOL

I was watching the road as he passed the white strips. He didn't seem to be going that fast but who know. 220kph would be 140mph.

if he was only doing 150 MPH, this video would have been alot shorter ..... he's definatly looks to be doing MPH.

I don't know it looks pretty slow for MPH. Plus 220? That speedo is either way off or that was KPH. I have heard of a Busa that has about $50k of mods doing 246 mph on the salt flats but just some joe doing 220 like that? Doesn't seem feasible..

I've seen that bike in a mag and he is still trying to get it faster. WTF is he going to do with it??

This is true. We don't know what he has but look at the video again and watch how the white strips pass him and then you go out on your bike and do the same at 120-130mph and see how little difference there is. Just my

OK Stop the press. Stop (pause) the (pause) press. I got the 4-11 and the skinny on this shiznit. The bike we are looking at in this video is a Turbo Hayabusa and it is 220MPH. I did some research on it so we would all know. Looking closely at the gauges, it is in mph and the inside numbers are in kph. So Matthew, I say sorry for wanting to argue with you on it and not think it was MPH. You were right.(Don't get used to me telling you this!!)

Just thought everyone would want to know this so now we can all sleep better at night. I know I will.

That's what I was thinking when I watched it. Just never got back around to posting about it.

I signed up in here bcuz I just bought a C6 ... Love the car ... and this is a great forum also

Now with regards to the video ... It's my bike ... it's that fast - We've had it up to 248mph ( on GPS) - I've personally done 232mph (GPS) - 250+ will be no problem .. anyone that doesn't believe it ... come on down to Nawlins and I'll give you a taste of speed ... Here's is the magazine article that was mentioned



Taken on the side of the road immediately after I did it


Here is my dyno sheet @12psi on PUMP GAS - I have 35psi at my finger tips - Let's just say 600rwhp is no problem




The bike is currently back at TotalKaosPerformance being beefed up a little more - We are going to do even faster videos once I get it back

LOVE the forum
