Buell (Harley-Davidson Group) has selected the British stunt rider, Craig Jones to pilot the modified Buell across a frozen Lake Dellen in Sweden.
Modification for Buell 1125R includes adding of NOS kit for more power and adding of nails on the tires (20mm at the rear, 15mm at the front) for more traction on ice. The modified Buell 1125R has now additional 50bhp more than the stock versions to almost 200 horsepower. The result was a top speed of 238 km/h (148.7 mph) on ice. It was not just an ice but was only a few cm thick and below that there is a lake with 1.2 billion cubic metres more of water.
Listen to Craig Jones words: “I firmly believe that your head is the biggest limiting factor in pushing to the edge. The less you think about the risks, the further you can push yourself. So I kept it simple. I just put the bike into gear, tucked down and went as fast as I could,” So the British Stunt rider continued pushing to the edge. He took action of pulling the world’s longest rolling stoppie (with a passenger on board), where he started braking at 192km/h, lifting the rear wheel off the ground and then riding 305 metres on the front wheel. Amazing was not enough. He also recorded: stubble longer riding a Buell XB9S over a distance of 225 meters on the single front wheel, starting with a speed of 190 km / h and stubble longer riding a Buell XB12R over a distance of 266 meters on the single front wheel, starting with a speed of 208kmh.
