Fast Inductee

Kiwi legend Burt Munro is one of nine new members selected for induction into Ohio’sMotorcycle Hall of Fame this year. The Invercargill native set a land-speed record on his customised 1920 Indian Scout at the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1962. His 50-year quest for the record was recently made into a film The World’s Fastest Indian directed by Roger Donaldson and starring Sir Anthony Hopkins. “I can just hear my father quietly chuckling. He would be quite disbelieving I think,” said Munro’s daughter, Margaret Popenhagen, in Stuff. “He did what he tried to do and his dream came true in the finish and I’m sure that was all he would have really expected.”
