Lightning electric motorcycle



My old team back on the salt this year. I was unable to join them. Wish I was there. Saw where they did 200mph for 2 of the 3 timed miles on a run. Richard (owner, seen in photo) tells me they had more power. Not sure what SCTA record is but the Lightning 2011 flying mile 215.960mph FIM record for electric 2-wheeler is what they're shooting for. New go-fast skin looks good.

I'll post credit for photo when I find it. Google Bonneville Speed week 2017 for timing sheets and gobs of pics. I'll edit with link to my 2011 thread when I find it.

I saw time sheets indicating they had two runs on the final day clocking a hair under 206mph. Not too shabby but disappointing not to set a record.

The videos I've seen indicate it was very bumpy. I'm heading out for BMST, I hope they can make a better course. Yet another reason that pavement racing is the future of LSR.

Cool. Keep us posted. Are you a salt virgin? It's a great experience. Like the far side of the moon. Be safe.....

I'm crewing for KillaJoule. I was there last year also; sadly I have to leave mid-week to return home in order to get up to Loring for the Harvest Event. :)

BTW, thanks for the link to Gregg Adams' pics in an earlier post. Gregg comes to (almost?) all the LSR events and takes great shots.
