Bill Warner Sets Motorcycle Land Speed Record: 311.9MPH (Video)
Bill Warner & Suzuki Hayabusa Set New Land Speed Record
What's the fastest you've ever gone on a motorcycle? Bill Warner has you beat: he just set the new land speed record for two-wheeled vehicles, at a blistering 311.945 miles per hour. You can see him take off with alarming speed in the video below.
Florida resident Bill Warner was riding a modified Suzuki Hayabusa (GSX1300R): out of the showroom, those are freakishly fast, never mind with a few optional extras installed. Warner broke his own record of 278.6mph, set in 2010.
Bill Warner's record-setting ride took place during the Loring Timing Association’s Land Speed Race at Loring Air Force Base in Bangor, Maine.
For the love of all you consider holy, do not try this at home. Racing is for the track, and not for the street.
“Today here at Loring we came to do some racing,” said Warner. “We were lucky enough to get a clean pass early this morning. The wind was down. We became the first motorcycle to go over 300 miles per hour.”
