Bonneville Stories Part X "Anatomy of a Streamliner The Denis Manning Story" has been released on YouTube
A supremely talented and self-taught designer and fabricator, Denis Manning has devoted his life to pursuing the motorcycle land-speed record and his innovative streamliners have succeeded on more than one occasion. Manning, also the founder of aftermarket motorcycle exhaust pipe company BUB Enterprises, built the streamliner that multi-time AMA Grand National Champion Chris Carr rode to a world-record 350.8 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats on September 7, 2006.
BUB 7 is now the fastest motorcycle on the planet * Chris Carr set a new FIM world record & AMA national record at 367.382 mph thru the mile with an exit speed of 372.534 mph at the Cook Private Meet at the Bonneville Salt Flats Utah Sept. 2009.

Thanks for posting the link.
Itís humbling to realize what some people have accomplished compared to our own achievements. I think Iíll archive the link so during the times I feel ďillusions of grandeurĒ coming on I can watch this video and bring myself back down to Earth.
Iíve only been in land speed racing for a short but itís evident that the sport draws in some very talented individuals.
The ingenuity, fabrication and mechanical abilities of people like Denis just amaze me.
Thanks again for posting this link.
