Thank you motorcycledaily.com for linking to this:
7 min 10 sec is something around 15 seconds faster than the previous best - it's impossible to be exact, cuz the 'fast' times these days have to be BTG (bridge to gantry) because except in competition the finish straight cannot be run at full speed because of traffic at the pit entry /exit, whereas earlier records were set 'full track'.)
I love the response by Andy Carlile to the question "Why is your bike so fast?". The answer: "It's only fast because I don't slow down." Watch the video and you'll see this is quite obviously the truth! My hands sweat, just thinking about it!
