    I know he’s going for 300, but he’s having to do it on a near streamliner that encloses him.

    Becci Ellis ran 265 on what is still a conventional enough 2 wheeler. I bet given his bike she would be faster than him. 9B77D56B-2B9D-4A51-B421-64D457C2338C.jpeg

    She prolly weighs a lot less than he does for a start, so that wouldn’t be an earth-shattering surprise.

    That's always been my advantage, being a racing snake means a better power to weight ratio, makes it harder hustling something heavy around though so you have to be fit to take advantage

    Ed Zackery. I have no idea who Guy Martin is; when I read the title, I thought he was that tv chef and I only know of him as he's a watch geek. Anyhoo, let's assume he's a 'normal' bloke and weighs around 13 stone and she's a 'normal' burd tipping the scales at 9 stone, she has a 4 stone advantage, which is about 25kg.

    No one on here needs me to tell them the advantage of shaving 25kg off a sports bike!

    Damn good racer, all round petrol head & professional northerner :D

    Anyone who has their own RR merlin engine & fires it up just for fun has to be worth taking an interest in (y)

    I'm with Slim. He's a guy with huge balls trying to make a living around fast machines. IOMTT, UlsterGP, NW200 Dundrod 150 where he had a hell of an off on fire. Google him. (y)

    Aye...The Merlin engine.
    Beautiful sound as we all know, but this numpty fired his up in the garage & not anchored down.
    He gave the throttle a tickle, thought he was on his bike no doubt and the Merlin took off and shot through the wall.:rolleyes::D

    And ignores the maximum recommended rpm for a Merlin on a stand just because he can.
