Mike had experienced some earlier problems with the jet engine’s torque driving the left side of the frame into the ground, but that appears to disappear at speed. He now plans to pursue his 500mph goal.

    Go, man, go!

    He gets to live his dream and we get to watch. Win-win. And it will spark competitors with their own jet bikes. Just think how cool the bike that goes 501 is gonna look.

    This guy’s using the air speed indicator out of Art Arfons’ Green Monster – a car that crashed at 600mph over 40 year ago nearly killing it’s driver – because he thinks it will bring him good luck..! You’ve just gotta admire that kind of fantastic logic…
