Valerie Thompson is the fastest woman on a production based bike. I met her 2 years ago at an event. She is also trying to beat the womans 512 mph record in a jet car.

I thought he is Caucasian and not Indian. Am I wrong?
His name is Burt Munro, a New Zealander, who on a modified 1920 Indian motorcycle ran 184 mph on a under 1000cc class at Bonneville Salt Flats. The bike only went 55 mph top speed when new.

My transportation company provided the transportation of Burt Munro's Indian motorcycle to approximately 20 different motorcycle events just a few years ago. A very interesting machine indeed. The seat pan had indentations in it to allow the valve rockers room to move. Just one of many things about it.
