Bonneville 2013

Over the pond.

Bonneville 2013

Postby MOFFtheGREAT » 16 Jan 2013, 11:34

Having recently watched Speed Dreams, and The worlds fastest Indian, I fancy attending the Bonneville Speed Week either this year or more likely next as a spectator. I believe it's 10-18 August this year (Tech Inspection starts on Aug 8) and at this stage know little of it.


I was thinking of looking into flying into Vegas, spending a few days there then hiring a suitable RV or 4x4 to camp near the racing.


Is there anyone else who would seriously consider joining me in this potentially extremely enjoyable adventure?

The thought of doing that is tempting, for 2014. I've been to the salt flats many years ago, not for any event though, and the big blue skies, vast dried salt lake bed with mountains off in the distance is quite spectacular. Got a nice piccy of a previous bike parked on the flats somewhere. I'd have to have assurances from Moff though, that he wouldn't give me a good thumping for all the liberties I may have taken over the years with fork oil, sheep stories and his ongoing relationship with David. :lol:

Forest, surely you are NOT going to keep referring to Moff and his exploding fork oil are you?

I love being right. If only it happened more often...

But what oil was Moff using there? :?
