Hi Lars and everyone else,
The rest of us back in Copenhagen are very curious to get an update! How are things going, Lars?
Maybe someone on this forum could could could give an update on what's going on if Lars is having trouble getting online, and you happen to bump into him - and maybe even post a few pics?!?
Have fun - we all hope to join next year!
Kasper and the rest of the crew.
Kasper !!!!....håber du fik min email ?!! Har ikke kunne komme online før nu.
Short update ( more later when I get my pics organized and uploaded)
Everything has gone well and I've had a flipping FANTASTIC time !!!!!!!
Picked up the bike in SLC and rode straight to Bonneville
and unpacked the beast:
Those two guys helping me is the brothers George and Jim of the Tri-Mac Speedsters Team
who graciously invited me to share camp at the bend in the road,
and pit with them.
Man; I'm telling you; you couldn't ask for better company than those two guys.
Thank you, thank you, thank you George and Jim for your hospitality, for your help
and your just brilliant funny and witty company !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
....and then you find yourself 5400 miles from home in a desert of salt, with a lump of metal,
going : "...what the hell have I got myself into.."
...but my 'new workshop' is just beauuuuuutiful:
...thaks to Sparky's friend Joey I got myself equipped with leathers and all
( PHEW it was HOT !!!)
...so I could do my rookie-run on Georges splendid little 100cc supercharged inter-cooled two-stroke.
This is George telling me: "..No funny stuff..you hear me ?!!...just give it all it's got..."
...and loo and behold: off I went down the salt YEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
and can now call myself a Bonneville Salt Flats Landspeed Racer ( or sum'thing like that)
What a feeling !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Got the bike together after a series of expected unexpected problems, modifications
and general fooling around and got it into Tech Inspection
...who swamped around it, this being a class A Special Build that I do believe requires
I'll see you in tech
...indeed ! The approval was handed over by none other than Graham a.k.a. 'grumm'.
...except; to get it into the logbook it was required that I show up with the leathers etc.
but the rightful owner was using them at this time and because of unforeseen circumstances
he had to leave early this morning , and the deal about borrowing them this morning fell through.
Also I was supposed to show up with Georges support vehicle and CB and fire extinguisher equipment
but they also had to leave today.
I HAD an idea about running it today, but I was having trouble of getting the jets
and the timing right , so running will be at BUB in ten days.
Never mind; I had expected this outcome, I've had the time of my life here,
met a bunch of great great guys who helped me, seen some spectacular cars
in spectacular action
................................. and I ran on the salt .
FLIPPING BRILLIANTLY FANTASTIC !!!!!!
I'm going on a little tour and then back to the Salt...back to BUB.
Doesn't get any better than this.
More pic and stuff later.
Hope you don't mind lars
Not at all, my man.
I'm shure he's coping with all that pressure and is having a blast
...indeed. Indeed I am !
