Ya know, it was a Droid Incredible 4G LTE from like 2010, so yeah, maybe the GPS wasn't absolutely perfect. I'll send HTC an email and see what they can tell me about the pure accuracy of their GPS chip and antenna while the application is set to record two data points every second.

I'll let you know what they say.

BMW vs BMW, which one wins?


Not sure why the motorcycle rider decided to melt the rear tire doing a massive burnout before the races.


If the bike could put all its power to the ground it would have been an even larger victory.

N20GT N20GT this was from my 175mph pass at RA. Unfortunately it's really short, but you can hear my 110 little chipmunks screaming away.




Thinking about it, I might have some onboard video using a ContourHD. Gotta be on some old external drive laying around collecting dust and rust.

That thing must be making some steam I had my 07 zx6r pinned for 5 minutes straight on 39 heading to Byron back in the day and 166 was all it could muster granted I weighed 225 at the time

Tuned and I weighed about 130lbs at the time. Back then I had a hard time finding leathers that fit me. Everything was too loose so the armor would roll around my arms and legs. Eventually got a nice pair of Hein Gericke leathers from Sport Bike Track Gear (which I'm still using).

My 03 636 had Cams, Head work, full exhaust and tuned by 4&6 racing back in the day.

Ed built some badass engines in his day. Mine put down 132whp and i weighed 180ish and gps verified 178mph.

Wish i didn't burn down that motor.
