Good for her.
I'm wondering how slippery that salt is, to ride on? I recall that one of our members took his R1200ST to 151 mph there.

Motorcycle racer and team owner, Valerie Thompson, set her 7th land speed record on her CTEK sponsored BMW S 1000 RR during the Utah Salt Flats Racing Association?s 28th Annual World of Speed event September 6-9 at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover, Utah. Six out of eight of Thompson?s passes were over 200 mph. On her last run of the event, Thompson recorded her best speed on the salt with a first pass at 209.85 mph and a return run of 207.71 mph, setting a new MPS-G 1000 record at 208.81 mph. The new record earned Thompson lifetime membership in the prestigious Red Hat Club, recognizing her 200+ mph performance. ?I've wanted the 200 MPH Club Red Hat since I started racing on the salt, so it?s an awesome achievement for me. I can't thank my team enough for their outstanding fight to the end. Ray Garcia did an incredible job of making all the right calls on the bike?s set up. Now I can focus on setting more records and going faster with the Red Hat,? added an ecstatic Thompson.
