A 40ft container is currently mid-Atlantic on its way to LA with 10 British-built Salt bikes in it. These include my supercharged Indian 741B, Mexican John's (he looks Mexican) supercharges 650 Kawasaki, a 1980's top fuel drag bike he found on eBay, now fully rebuilt, Briz's beeeeeutiful turbo charged BSA twin, Steve French's supercharged Triumph, a 500cc JAP special, Peter Allen's 650 Triumph (already holds a record) & more. At least two more bikes are being flown over, a supercharged flathead Harley owned by Patrick, & another turbo charged Triumph. I only have pictures of my Indian & Mexican's Kawa, hopefully some of the Brits will see this & post pictures of thier bikes.
I'm afraid I caught "Salt Fever" when I came over with 5 other bikes in 2012. The BBC made a documentary called "Speed Dreams" about us, so now.....12 bikes! Look out for us in the pits & come & say hello. cheers

Your daughters are OK, MM, I'm only coming to the salt Flats to race, not to flirt wink

My bike has a new fairing and some better/stronger hardware in the engine, still in bits, got to hurry up...

As it was after last year campaign in front of the garage, a tad small but I cope:



Cheers from Patrick

Hi John not this year. I want to experience Speedweek and also the record is higher so gives us a real challenge to try and break it. Also lots of competition in our class will make it fun. What are your plans this year?

Looking forward to seeing the improvements - both with the fairing and the time slips.

Patrick, I don't know what your itinerary is for your trip, but if you manage to make it to Milwaukee, you MUST SEE the HD Museum.

Let me know if you come to "Beerhaven".

I'll personally shake all of you guys by the hand if I find you on the salt.  It was due to the Speed Dreams program on over Christmas 2012 which resulted in out Speedweek trip in 2013 and also our return in 2014.  Just spectating for a few days while on a bit of a US road trip so will hopefully meet up in the pits or staging.
