The Race for the Motorcycle World Land Speed Record
Will be available at your favorite bookstore or online August 15th.
This is Rocky Robinsons first nonfiction book, and is intended to put you in the drivers seat of one of, if not the fastest motorcycle ever built. Ever wonder what its like to go faster than anyone else has ever gone? Try 350 mph on for size. This is not your everyday, routine mystery or cookie-cutter thriller.
The intensity is real. From his early days of racing motorcycles on mile and mile ovals on 750cc V Twin motorcycles, to land speed racing and crossing the pond to the Land Down Under, where his best run resulted in a blown engine, coasting through the timing lights with the rods snapped, the motor bleeding oil into its enclosed bodyworkthreatening to ignite into a blistering inferno. This pass was made in March of 2000, and is still the fastest recorded speed anyone has traveled on two wheels in Lake Gairdner, Australia.
The ups and downs of racing for big bucks sponsors, whose money does funny things to those whose job it is to keep you safe and pointed in the right direction.
