    Not to long ago at a bike shop in Tampa Fl, I saw several photos posted of a bike with the name Bill Warner hand written on it.

    I took a double take to make sure that it didn’t read Bill Werner, tuner of factory Harley Flat track fame.

    Asking the shop owner who is this guy ?

    His reply was you will know soon after explaining the guys ambitions.

    Now I Know.

    Congratulations ! What a feat.

    Probably about 100 bikes now have gone over 200mph on that little ole airstrip in Texas, ya got about a 1/2 mile to shut her down past the mile mark. Couple years ago a jet car went over 320. Probably a little safer than street racing on Westheimer,lol.

    What makes this a “street bike”? Is it legally registered? Was it inspected by a DMV? What?
