it's finally the time to break the wall of 110mph...


we were so excited and got up early. maybe too early. what the hell, couldn't wait anymore so just headed to the starting line.

なんだかやけに興奮してスーパー早起きをしてしまう。もう待ちきれないのでスターティング・ラインへとりあえず向かう。



day 2, first run, 104mph. ok, so we got 101, 103 and 104 so far. whatever the numbers are, getting faster make us feel great :)

2日目の1走目、104マイル。昨日から101、103、104・・・数字はともあれ、速くなっていくというのは気分の良いものですけど

instead of getting back to the pit, shinya wanted to change the jet and try again. the rev counter he fixed yesterday worked great and everything was sound and stable, he said.

昨日直した回転計もばっちり。他に不安なところもない。ピットに帰らずバンでジェットを替えて空いているうちにもう1走することにした木村氏。レーシング・スーツ着たままバンで作業。



right before the second day second run.

2日目の第2走目直前。

wow! 114.223mph!!! it's not a record or anything but we were sooooooooooooooooo happy. it's shinya's personal best and we finally broke the wall of 110mph! 15mph more to go for the class record!

114マイルきたぁぁぁぁ!!!全然クラスレコードでも何でもありませんけど、ついに110マイルの壁を破ることが出来て爽快です!エンジンは絶好調で安定しているので、滞在中に少しずつ速めていければいいな。

In Bonneville parlance a personel best IS as good as a record . So congratulations and here's to another few MPH next year .

Hi Shinya and Ayu
Congratulations for that speed !!! 114 with a Knuckle and this riding position..., I realize how hard it is now, approaching a record is a hard job and needs a big experience. But that's a Graal, and i would like to come with the same bike each year to go faster and faster.

Thanks a lot for your Kindness !
