Bonneville Report, BUB Speed Trials 2011

Got back Friday from a full week on the salt at Bonneville with the BUB Speed Trials, the world's premier all motorcycle Land Speed Event. Records were not broken, they were SMASHED as the surface conditions and weather were superb for record runs.

Two goofballs having too much fun in the sun:

How it's done, full time:

Denis Manning's Dual engined Norton Streamliner, the last salt rocket he raced in:

Brough Superior!

A tremendously fast flat-track Triumph:

Stuart Hooper's "World's Fastest Velocette" broke 145 mph!

Nice Record Setting BSA from Auburn before its record run:

Big Sid's "Lola"

Salty Sunrise:

The "World's Fastest Indian Trailer"

James "the Comet"'s James Comet, World Record Holder:

Team Sodium Distortion, featuring "Super Rat". Great guys, super fast bikes, good friends to have out there:
