Reckon you can get your elbow down on a motorcycle at 1…


Can you get your knee down on a motorcycle? How about your elbow? If you’re Scott Redding, you can get your head down but we wouldn’t recommend it. If you’re Marc Marquez you can get your whole body down sliding at high-speed… repeatedly.

Well, the editor of our esteemed German counterparts Motorrad has just had the honour of breaking a new Guinness World Record (unofficially for now) for the speed at which a rider is able to get an elbow down.

Fabian Dresler – equipped with a sturdy elbow guard and steely nerves – succeeded in getting his arm down onto the Tarmac at 168.65km/h (104.79mph), putting 6 km/h between himself and the erstwhile record of 162.4km/h (100.91mph) achieved by American professional racer Josh Herrin.

To achieve the feat it had to be done on a road-going bike, so no MotoGP or WorldSBK trickery here, and the leaning steed chosen here was a Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP.
