Glad he made it.

I will still advise seeing The World's Fastest Indian, one of those great unknown movies.

I have to agree. Anthony Hopkins does such a great job, you forget your watching an actor within 10 seconds.

Chris's land speed record has held up. He is the fastest man on two wheels.

A BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO CHRIS.

RE: In The Books

Indeed, quite an achievement for Chris Carr and his crew.I really thought he would be the first to reach to 10 second mile.He must be pumped!Anyone remember who was the last Harley dirt tracker to break a world record at bonneville.
If my memory serves it would be 40 years ago this week and his initials are the same as mine.

RE: Re: RE: In The Books

As soon as I finished that last post I knew someone was going to suggest it was Cal Rayborn.Not to say that the answer is incorrect.Although Cal was a dirt tracker ,as most all were in the days when the AMA had a single National Champion,he is not remembered as one today as his greastest triumphs were on the tarmac.
You made me take a trip to my library to veryify my info and I was incorrect that the initials were the same as mine,but the world land speed record I was refering to was the one set by George Roeder in 1966(opps 65) at Bonneville on a 250 Aermacchi(HD) at 176.817 mph.
The error on my part was I could remember the HD ad in the Dec 1966 cycle world mag of Bart Markel as the new 1966 AMA #1 and there is a inset of the bonnville record and I assumed(incorrectly) it was Bart who set the record.

I know your initials are BM and figured it was Bart markel you were with reference.

Being a fan of the Roeder family I was aware George set a "250 cc" record of 177.225 mph on a modified Harley-Davidson Sprint.

The same year saw Bart Markel win the second of his three AMA Grand National Championships.

I see there is an interesting difference in the speed record posted in the AMA motorcycle museum records and the original ad in the mag in front of me from dec 1966.The magazine ad says that the speed record was 176.817 for the flying mile not 177.225 as in the archives.That figure was for the flying kilometre.
It is a shame that both Cal and George are not alive today to congratulate Chris Carr.It would have make quite a photo a bonneville today,dont you think?.
This record may be just the boost Chris needs as he will have his hands full this weekend in Columbus....wish I was going.
