Hey everyone, thought you might enjoy this! We just got a full article and a bunch of photos online this afternoon. Race results and coverage of Bonneville Speed Week 2018. Our group 'Lowbrow Land Speed Racing' had four bikes running, a 1950 650cc Triumph streamlined bike by Alp Sungertekin, a 1950 750cc Triumph bike by myself (Tyler Malinky), a 1967 650cc Triumph by Kyle Malinky, and a 1973 1000cc Norton by Andy Cox. Alp and myself both set land speed records on our vintage British motorcycles. I hope you enjoy!

126.455 on gasoline is outstanding. that tire slip is problematic, though. the more it slips the more horsepower you have to use without going faster. i don't know what you could do to compensate except work with a wider tire or add ballast,and both those come with costs.


"Are bikes so nice as all that?" asked the mole, shyly...

"Nice? They're the only thing," said the Water Rat Solemnly, as he leaned forward on the handlebars. "Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- half so much worth doing as simply messing about with bikes."

Thanks, Tyler, Mikey, and all the team at Lowbrow for a very professional video. I got to re-live all the issues I've had over the past 9 years - shifting, rebuilding the clutch between runs, rebuilding the transmission, changing the gearing, allowing for wind speed (about 1 mph for each 3mph wind speed), allowing for wheelspin (about 4% slippage for the horsepowers we run), and loose nuts and bolts to keep chasing. Did I mention loss of oil pressure due to the oil filter falling off? Or hitting a side marker and taking out the windshield? Maybe you'll be so lucky on your next trip!

Tom

Tyler & Kyle, Thanks for posting this! It provided a great chance to sit down and sort of share your experiences with you. Especially because it parallels our own adventures in the quest for speed. There is much struggle, disappointment, offerings to the God of Speed, and, once in a while, a burst that meets or exceeds expectations.
I had never participated in any motorsport until I made the first pass with my Hornet streetbike in October 2006. It was at the old, crappy runway in Maxton, N.C. After that I was hooked! Like you guys the scene, action and the people made me feel that this is the thing I was supposed to do. Speaking of which, it will be a long winter but there is lots of the doing to do to get both bikes ready for next season, so i better get to it! Cheers, PRT
