    Nah, the one behind it is a fairly straighforward supercharged 250 4-cylinder in comparison.

    You would have thought his welding would have gotten better by the time he had finished the frame, wouldn't you?
    I assume that has a body to drop on to it?

    At least he's out there having a go with something that he built though. Full credit.

    Old mate is sitting on a milk crate, so it’s gotta be KLR based.

    I also would have assumed it had a body to drop on, but I didn't see one lying around, strangely, and there are no obvious mounting points for bodywork either.

    That photo was from the 2016 meeting. Here's one from this years meeting, same style, much more developed :

    It was an R1 based FF (feet forward) built in Broken Hill I think, either there or Silverton.

    Apparently he is trying to get it engineered for street use.:p3rry

    He did 141 mph same as my 250.

    And yep not sure how it got through scrutineering.

    The other one "Black Ice Racing" is powered by a supercharged Suzuki GS500 twin I think. Did 145 mph.

    That one is aspiring to be a flat stick Troy. The actual flat stick is in the background.:wink:

    Here's Lionel West demostrating a flat-stick-with-spin for you. At 270MPH.

    Roland Skate is building this to run again this year, with improved internals. Can't wait to see how it goes!

    Some years back there were a couple of Honda sixes with forced induction out there, but I haven't seen them for a few meetings.

    On the subject of Honda sixes, I was sitting in Cooma with a mate from Bermagui, Pete on his KLR, whilst munching tucker at the Turkish cafe (now owned by Indians, ironically...) and watching some belly dancers (Cooma is OK eh). A stream of Honda sixes started riding past, I reckon every Honda six in the country was in that line eh. Dozens and dozens of them. I've never seen so many in the one location, and never thought I would.

    Here's a bike.

    Hey GS, yeah that wouldve been the CBX rally for sure. They move it around every year. I went to the one in Newcastle in '16 a real headspin. Re: blown cbxs on the salt, i think the guy with the NA cbx ran one a few years back with twin turbos. I suspect Rol built that as well

    I seem to recall a twin turbo jobbie OD, there was a small clutch of CBX sixes for a few meetings there a while ago.

    This bike is suitably strange.
