Default 130 MPH on the biodiesel-powered Moto

Near the end of the article...

Another rider to make history was Michael Sturtz, who went 130.614 MPH on the biodiesel-powered Die Moto machine. Sturtz's design fuses a European diesel engine, sourced from a car, with an R1150RT running on B100 biodiesel. Sturtz built the unique design at the Oakland non-profit arts organization - The Crucible. Sturtz is the founder and executive director of the program, which teaches skills like welding, blacksmithing and other industrial arts. Now Sturtz can add world record-holder to his resume.

He Who Shall Not Be Named is about to blow a gasket right about now, I bet.
