    Here's wishing good luck to Triumph and Guy Martin in this quest ...

    I just had a look at the Triumph Web site and can't see a date for the attempt yet ( this Month ? ),
    but there are some sexy looking Photo's and videos ( if you like that kind of thing ! )  :169:

    Coconut, while you provide some of the most valuable information on this forum.   I do believe Guy Martin broke the previous Triumph record of 245.667 mph.   They still have a ways to go to break the current two wheeled record of 373.363.   Here's hoping they do it.   I think this is correct but I have been wrong once before  :008:

    Coconut , you are one hell of a good guy.   I know Triumph is going for the overall record and I admire them for the attempt.   I hope the break 400mph.    But they should have used three 1215 triples instead of two Rocket motors, what do you think?   Here's to you, Triumph, the sponsors and Guy Martin with brass balls :821:

    By the looks of the rear tire Goodyear might have a bit of work to do to achieve another 100+ mph.
