Sidecar record at El Mirage
 

I was debating whether or not to post this. A friend keeps prompting me so here goes. As some of you know I have an LSR sidecar. I was determined to get it out this year as it has languished for some time now. I brought it out for the May season opener at El Mirage dry lake and promptly got tossed out of tech! In all my years of racing thats the first time that happened to me. Very humiliating to say the least. They didn't like the handlebar set up and a number of other things. Changes were made and it ran in June and July. At the Sept. 13 meet it finally got into its stride and cranked off a 122.240 mph run for a 500 cc pushrod gas sidecar record.

On the line.

And the best part. Stripping it for certification.

Of course you should let us all know of your victory. We can't all race, so we need you to let us know, so we can be a little/live a little vicariously through you. Then we celebrate for and with you.

I hope I'm not alone on this, I don't think I am....anyway.....

Good for you and Bravo! Hemingway is proud of you.

Awesome job!

I've been lurking/following your escapades for a while now, love the design on your bike.

I've been contemplating a similar build myself.

My brother and I should be at Elmo in October, hope to take a look at your rig then.

I was out there when you set the record. I saw your run and thought that your control set up was pretty wild, I checked it out when it was in impound. Good job and congrats for building such a wild machine and having the balls to ride it. <a href="http://s226.photobucket.com/albums/dd258/druff69/?action=view&current=09132009647.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd258/druff69/09132009647.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

Wow! Thanks for all the kind words.
Dandruff, Wish you had have said hello. It is always nice to put a face to a name.

Dreamweaver, It will be out in Oct. The goal is 130. Stop by and say hello.

The same friend said this was a good shot so here it is.

Congratulations from a fellow national LSR record holder. Breaking those records take a lot of time and money, seeing your name in the books makes it all worth while.

Thanks Rivet. I don't know if you know Dave Anderson. He sent me a video of a run at Maxton. Man, I had no idea it is so bumpy! I don't think the sidecar will be there!

Is this the video he sent you? Bumpy is right!!! This video was taken on our M/PG-650/4 BSA Hornet, the turbo nitrous bike broke before I could get any video on it.
