The World's Fastest Indian (movie)

I just saw this movie tonight. I really enoyed it. I don't want to say the whole storyline. But I just thought that the main charecter Burt Munro sort of reminded me of some of you crazy hypermilers.

There is short video about Burt Munro on the dvd (the whole movie was based off of).

Well you can read more about burt munro here-

you know making a motorcycle that originaly does 50mph go to 190mph.
Is the same kind of thinking as making a 25mpg car get 95mpg

Best of all, both things could be possible in the same car with the right modifications...

That was a great movie , too bad it was Hollywoodized.
He never made it to 200mph . his record time was 180 sumthing.
