Gunfighter, the P-51 Mustang, is an aircraft that can whip along around 505 miles per hour. We push our bikes and vehicles, especially on long open stretches or drag race arenas, from the mild 55 mph to anywhere we can – be it 120 mph or 200 mph.
The time trials are a feat of wills and control over a bike. It comes down to experience handling a two wheeled instrument on the road.
So imagine being in the air, flying fast, breaking the sound barrier. Hitting mach 1 for the first time in 1947, Chuck Yeager did just that. In 1953 Jackie Cochran became the first female pilot to do the same.
We may not see speeds that quick on the ground, but we sure try.No comments yet | Gunfighter, Motorcycles, P-51, WarBikes | Permalink
