BUB Seven Streamliner 367mph World Record Run

Just talked on the phone with a very ecstatic Denis Manning owner and builder of  the BUB 7 Streamliner, now the fastest motorcycle on the planet. Chris Carr set a new FIM world record & AMA national record at 367.382 mph through the mile with an exit speed of 372.534 mph at the Cook Private Meet at the Bonneville Salt Flats Utah. How fast in 367.382 mph? That’s 538 feet per second and 5 football fields in 3.3 seconds. Conceived by Denis, the Bub V-4 is a 400hp engine in a package the size of a 1 liter V-Twin. Watch this historic video. More info and details at these 2 websites: Bub and 7 Streamliner. I will publish soon the full story of this absolute World Land Speed Record on 2 wheels. Congrats again to Chris, Denis and the fastest motorcycle crew in the business.

    I interviewed Chris Carr for “Bikers Inner Circle” when Chris was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame. What a great guy to interview! In the interview we discussed he and Bub gearing up to attempt to break his world speed record and at the time I remember thinking, wow!…. It must be nice to be your only competition!
