I was looking at bikes in the Bike EXIF archives and came across this TW in Australia.

...setting a new national open class 250cc record at Lake Gairdner. Do you know any other commuter bikes that have broken national speed records?


How cool is that?!

That's waaay cool! When I read the heading I thought to myself, OK, what's the joke? It never occurred to me that it was actual fact. That bike is fast, and awesome looking, too.

Kewel TW for commuting. 74mph is slow for a 200. 74mph is good for a basically stock TW engine. My SL100 turned 101.01 at Bonneville and did not set a record. It was my daily rider first 2 years of high school. A bicycle did 125+ that year, but was following a van with a fairing to break the wind. 250cc shifter karts turn 160mph+ with 250cc engines.
