This Woman Set An Incredible Motorcycle Speed Record At The Texas Mile

As we mentioned on Saturday, the Texas Mile is not for the faint of heart.


But if you think guys like Sean Kennedy are tough for setting a 263 mph record in a cracked-out Hennessey Ford GT, try doing something like that on a motorcycle.

That's exactly what rider Jennifer Robertson did this at this weekend's Mile. Let's all say congratulations to Robertson, because she is now the world's fastest female motorcycle rider in a standing mile. According to our pal photographer Zerin Dube, Robertson set a speed record of 243.6 mph on her Suzuki Hayabusa.

Robertson is definitely a woman after our own hearts here at Jalopnik. According to this profile in Motorcycle USA, she's a veteran motorcycle racer who has long had a goal of exceeding 250 mph at the Texas Mile. Congrats on the awesome record!
