"This weekend at the newly updated Maxton course two different bikes broke Lee Shierts 260.288 mph record, which had stood since 2004. First, Scott Guthrie's machine called "Hammer" went 264.375, with rider Shane Stubbs in the saddle. As if that wasn't enough, less than 30 minutes later Bill Warner went 272 mph on his turbo 'Busa, which features some custom bodywork. Warner is the same rider that went 255 mph last year at Texas on a naked bike. Warner's record is now the fastest standing-mile motorcycle record in the world, and it makes it the second fastest "sit-on-the-motorcycle" record, just a few tenths shy of Joe Amo's number from Bonneville.
