    Bill Warner Killed in Record attempt

    Bill Warner was killed this weekend at Loring, Mass trying for a 300mph run in the mile course after losing control at over 285mph and sliding off course. Thoughts and prayers to his family.

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    The location was at the old Loring AFB in Northern Maine. Sad to hear about Bill Warner accident. With high end speed comes high end risk. His speed last year was 311mph but still 285mph is no joke.

    Bill held the outright fastest motorcycle speed at loring at 311. There were no other sit on motorcycles faster. This wasn't his first crash, I think he crashed at the Texas mile in 2011. He's not crash prone, racing isn't a safe sport - there is a tremendous amount of risk involved even in just going straight.

    I didn't know him, but many of my friends did and are in mourning. From what I hear he was a hell of a guy.
