The brother of a work colleague of mine is over in Bonneville at the moment for the Cook's Shootout and other events.

Greg is running two bikes over there, his Hyabusa 1300, and a GSXR750, ridden by his team-mate Kim(yes a girl).
Greg got top speeds of 257MPH out of the Busa, and 238 out of the 750. Yes that's MPH!!!

Some info on Greg and the bikes:

Link to the Shootout rundown:

Essentially both bikes are stock apart from some body work and a bolt on Turbo kit that also includes a secondary computer to run extra fuel injectors.

Greg set a new Southern California Timing Association Record of 253Mph averaged from runs in both directions  (404.8kmh) at the World of Speed meet, then went on the FIM COOKS 2012 International record event. Hes still running at that now, where hes trying to beat the current world record of 232mph for his class.

This is a video of a 250MPH pass where the front tyre starts to shred. Greg kept the bike pegged at that speed and didn't back off until he hit the timing marker so the run would count.  :eek:  :eek:

How these guys get on the bike with balls the size of grapefruit is beyond me.

This guy has smashed the record in his class by at least 20MPH!!!

To do 2 thirds of the WORLD record shows a complete lack of fear.

The whole video looks like the bits of The Butterfly Effect where he's about to enter a different dimension.
