Not quite sure what those guys were doing, but low 30s is fairly respectable for an expert, most AMs will be several seconds behind. Remember that guys like Ed and Brian (Paul James, Rhiannon) have pretty tricked out machines. They've lightened them up and optimized them for their riding style (suspension, ergonomics, etc) Your mileage may differ.
Alexa, I highly doubt any of those riders can do a low 30 on a lightweight machine at Road America.
The ASRA Thunderbike lap record set this spring is 2:30.2. as published by RRW volume 16 Number 7 page 118. My SV SB was running with an additional 20 lbs of lead to meet the hp to weight requirements.Ed Key
BLOODY PISS!!!!! WOW!!! Me ----> <---- Ed Key!
I wonder how much faster Ed would have gone without that 20 pounds of lead strapped to the bike.That brings up a question I have. How does one go about strapping the weight to a machine to meet the HP to weight requirement? Do you have to strap the weight to a certain part of the machine or certain spot or is that the decision of the rider/team? Ed, did you have to bring out the old bathroom scales to make sure you were legal before you brought it back to tech? Or were you ready to go before you got to the race track that day?
