Slipstream Results: Record, 75.245 mph….
me 70.989…. Didn’t break the record, but found out why! (of course after we did basically rebuilt the bike onsite – engine swap, ignition failure, leaking carb float, etc etc etc. & dyno’d at home with all the set-ups – we came back with an even more solid bike, just ran out of time & salt conditions were already degrading. I now know how salt reacts to temp/wind/humidity/altitude/time of day… hmmm…. next year! Check out the pics, I have a ton more, but this was on the 1st day when they were following around Carlin Dunne (Pikes Peak fame – fastest guy on a MC) for Bruce Brown (On Any Sunday fame) son’s movie production coming soon for the team we were racing for (Falkner/Livingston). My favorite is Wynn being my umbrella boy!

Picture of the leathers (was an onsite repair gluing a leather chamois to my leathers to pass the infamously difficult tech inspection – remember ‘Worlds Fastest Indian’… it was just like that, same guys even!)
