The Rayborn record still stands and can't be beaten, 2000cc S-F at 265.492 in August 1970 (S-F : Streamliner-Fuel)

Same for the Burt Munro's Indian one... 1000cc S-F at 183.586 in August 1967

If some of you are around Bonneville for Speed Week in early August, look for me... I'll be there with -at last!!!- a French bike...

So long, Patrick...
