Josh Barton Does 227.2 MPH on Turbo Suzuki Hayabusa

The fact that Hayabusa is a really fast bike is old news, and thrill-seekers installing turbo kits are to be seen every now and then. However, it is always glorious to see people racing and giving their best shot at glory in places such as the Texas Mile.
Today it's Josh Barton's time to shine, with his 196.8 mph (316.65 km/h) run at the Houston Half Mile and a nifty 227.2 mph (365.56 km/h) at the famous Texas Mile. Why we're showing you this? Because it's really cool, and because these guys are racing exactly where bikes should be raced: in a controlled environment, with no drivers in their way and therefore less unnecessary risks.

So it's the 200+ MPH Club for Josh, just like Valerie Thompson, even though she rode an altogether different beast. You can find RCC Turbo and Brock's Performance tuning on Josh' machine. Nice run, sir!
