We had done it! Both GSX-Rs had traveled more than 3000 miles to set a 24-hour world speed record for motorcycles, with the blue one (128.303 mph average) narrowly edging out the red one (128.059). Along the way, we also had set records for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 hours. And as Jack Dolan, the chief FIM official in attendance, told us, those were absolute records. No motorcycle of any type, any displacement, any configuration, naturally aspirated, supercharged or turbocharged, had gone faster for any of those time periods. Ever.
