Although not to do with twin engined bikes but I did mention above some time ago I'd like to have a go at top speed runs on my Hayabusa Two Faced; well I finally managed it. First runs were in August and I manged 180mph at Elvington, but in September 2012 I went there again and clocked four runs all in excess of 190mph with a best of 196.6 mph. Normally aspirated. These runs can be seen on YouTube at:- http://youtu.be/P3iOnGyMfZs I hope you don't mind me posting this here. I don't think my original Two Faced double-engined Triumph's engines would have stayed in one piece long enough, on their 98% nitromethane fuel diet! Cheers for now. Pete

Well done Pete that's great news. I really hope I can see the bike run one day.

I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing Bob Webster's double Kawasaki running in the future

At the NSA meeting at Woodbridge last weekend, Jeff Baron was there with his new sprinter which looks rather like a retro drag bike. However, it is new and unusually, it has 2 Honda 125cc engines! It only made gentle shake-down passes. Sorry, no pictures as I was otherwise busy

Might of already been mentioned ( and it wasnt a twin.) but does anyone have pictures of a jag powered bike run by Alan Thompson in the early 70s?

Pete Allan in firesuit at Surfers Paradise, there can't be many, if any, who've raced a Fueler plus a Funny Car and a bike at the same meeting
