This fall, Jody Perewitz became the first woman to ride an American V-Twin motorcycle at over 200 mph. She broke the record at the 8th edition of the BUB Motorcycle Speed Trial that takes place every year on the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah. She rode a 100-cubic-inch Twin-Cam V-Twin custom motorcycle built around a Daytec chassis and assembled at R&R Cycle.
At the 5.5 mile course of Benneville, riders have 2.5 miles to get up to speed. After the 2.5 miles, the American Motorcycle Association (AMA) times their speed for a mile before riders enter the 1.5 mile slow down zone. Jody entered the one-mile zone at 199 mph and exited at 205 mph.
Watch below a preview of “Shoot the Salt”—a short documentary that follows Jody Perewitz and her team as she attempts to set a land speed record to become the first woman to race an American made motorcycle over 200 mph.
