Mike Charlton jet bike hits 208mph at Bonneville

Dailies -


Charlton_Jet_Bike_Flag_fire.jpgThe problem with Bonneville is you can’t practice. Mike Charlton only got his 500mph jet bike up to 208mph, running into problems with tracking straight and cooling (as evidenced by the above picture) along the way. He’ll be back next year with some major revisions, in the meantime this video captures the entire effort pretty well.  >

    Shame, no footage of the thing actually moving.
    Why do people insist on overlaying some Shite sound track over these types of shorts,I’m more interested in hearing the dialogue and engine/mechanical sounds that someone’s idea of a good tune.

    LLoydy, maybe that’s the point. Some soundtrack to mask what you want to hear that may not be sounding right (as evidenced by the above picture) Hehe

    That video sucks ass. Nice mix, jackass. I can’t hear anything anybody’s saying. And where’s the footage of the bike moving? Plus it’s shitty music.
