Default Bonneville Speed Week 2008 photos

Here are a few miscellaneous shots I took at Speed Week...wish I had more details on some of the bikes but maybe some of you guys know them. I heard the guy with the Vincent got it in 1955 and has been racing it since 1959. I believe the supercharged Honda 305 Dream set a record for its class. The gal on the black and white Hyabusa also set a record at over 200mph! This was my first trip to Spped Week and i feel pretty lucky that the weather and track conditions were so perfect. Many records were broken this time. I posted some car-related photos on the Jalopy Journal HAMB too just search for "Alter Boys Bonneville photos".

Fantastic shots! Love the shot of Fritz on his Triumph. The salt looks great. I wish I could have made it this year.

The salt was great this year.This was my 2nd year there and it doesn't get any better than Bonneville Speed Week.You can still build a bike in your garage and there would be a class for it.I'd love to take the next step and ride a bike down the salt but until I do the spectating at this event is still one of the coolest things I've ever seen.It was good to see some of the JJer's there and I can't wait for next year.

I have a couple more pics of Speedweek to add. Shinya was in line behind us and I asked him to roll up for a picture of the two Knucks together. Awesome sight.
Our week started great, ended suddenly and not so sweet. The last three pictures are of our Knuckle.

Not sure what went on but pretty sure the cyllinder failed.. not a piston etc. Reproduction cylinders. We need a new front to get Dave running again this season but probably won't happen.
I posted the pictures and couldn't figure out why they were so small. Huge files so I took them down, but I didn't think thumbnails. I have a few more and also some relics that are great to see, but not until I fugure out this posting stuff. Any help? We'd like the pictures good enough to get some second opinions on the Knuck.

Hi Jill, Good to see you last Sunday. That is some hurt Dave put on that cylinder! Maybe the motor is trying to tell you something. Like "I wasn't designed to go 145.222mph!". Still hard to believe a Knuck could go that fast. Hope you get it sorted out and give 150 a beating.

Yep! Good to see you. Glad to see you at the post when I rolled off.
When the Knuck happened, he was on a 151 run...I thought. Blew at about 137mph. Glad he didn't get hurt. I'll work on getting the pictures to a decent size.
