“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Busa Road Bike 219.5MPH Record

Brit Steve Bland has set the UK’s ‘Fastest Nitrous Motorcycle’ record on his 1400cc Suzuki Hayabusa…which he also rides on the road.

Blasting to a top speed of 219.5mph, from a standing start over one-mile, at the Straightliners event at Elvington airfield, near York, Bland’s normally-aspirated stretched Busa, makes a staggering 550bhp and 400ftlb of torque when the nitrous comes in at full throttle. The previous record of 217mph was set in 2000 by Richard Albans.

Bland says: “My goal is to break the 232mph world record, but also to be the first person in the world to hit a terminal speed of 250mph on a nitrous bike. There’s one more practice session before the world record attempt in August where I intent to run the bike to 235mph, but I’m looking for sponsorship to bring the title home to the UK, so any help would be appreciated.”
