Rocky Robinson Crashes While attempting New Land Speed Record

Last Monday, while attempting at the Bonneville Salt Flats to beat his own land speed record of 394 miles per hour, driver Rocky Robinson crashed his machine at over 100 mph. It seems that the new installed traction control malfunctioned, unexpectedly shifting all power to the rear wheel with for consequence the bike taking off, then flipping over a dozen of times before landing upside down. The bike is a complete wreck and Rocky Robinson sustained a broken shoulder and collar bone and cuts in his left leg. Back at home where he waits for some surgery, I am sure he is already thinking about his next LSR attempt. (picture Rocky Robinson)

    Dear Rocky,
    Get better soon!

    P.S. Flash! Don’t think anyone is going to attempt to beat your record, anytime soon.
