    Also not heard of go fast land in Oregon?
    Talking w/a bud last night, saying that’s still on my bucket list.
    I didn't realize it but about 15 years ago me and a HD friend did a coast ride spring to NorCal see my brother, foothills into Tahoe. ( PS, ever get that way, take HWY 36 from Fortuna on the coast ( south of Eureka) to Red Bluff SUPER ride!) Then did the other side the "bumps" ( Cascade Mountain Range
    eastern high desert) coming back. We were probably east Alvord Dry lake about 100 miles. We did (on 395 now Oregon out of NorCal) ride by weather beaten signs, "Lake Camping , Cabins for Rent". Then some beaten down structures, picnic tables rotting away in the sun, and sure had one hell of a beach, as THERE WAS NO LAKE!! Akali lake (dry). Trust me, western and eastern Washington and Oregon are like a different planets!

    [QUOTE=David - WI;3158596]We all know how it is... in your head "there's a 1% chance this might kill me"; in reality it's probably more like 50/50.


    more like 90/10 at those speeds , RIP
    most overnite successes usually take at least 10 years

    Autoblog reports that the average speed of Combs’ two runs in opposite directions across Oregon’s Alvord Desert on Aug. 27 was 531.889 mph, which would break the current women’s land speed record of 512.710 mph, set in 1976 by Kitty O’Neil at the same location.
