54,000 HP/548.432 mph top speed pass/522.783 mph recognized record. Try wrapping your head around those numbers.  Raising a glass tonight in your honor.  You are in rarefied air, Jessi, wherever you are.

I remember seeing all the tribute posts from Wind & Throttle, Moto Lady, GTMoto etc when she passed, I didnt pick up on the record attempt at the time. Nice to see she's getting the recognition she deserved for this amazing feat. I don't know what a 540mph run feels like, pretty sure I dont want to!
