Yesterday we saw Adrian Lottie with his Pro Comp drag racing motorcycle. Today I have a picture of Glen Nickleberry’s Funnybike drag racing motorcycle. This bike has run in the 6.7 range at 218 mph in the quarter mile at the drag strip and has won numerous drag racing championships. I have photographed Nick several times in the past on this motorcycle. Today I was at the Tombo Racing shop and saw the bike there undergoing the normal between races tuneup and overhaul. For this shot I used my Toyo VX-125 and swung the front standard so that I could keep the entire length of the motorcycle in focus even when using a fairly wide open aperture.
