Roland Sands pushes a turbo charged Victory V-Twin to it’s limits in an attempt to brake the 200 mile per hour mark (320km). On their final pass the bike blew a piston 400m from the timing gates. The bike still reached 185mph which makes this the worlds fastest Victory, unfortunately their 200mph goal will have to wait.
