LET'S GO TO BONNEVILLE

Post by BEN JAMES » Fri Jul 15, 2005 5:05 pm

to gary baker,greg watters & gazza 414
have been floating this idea in my head for a while. the four of us could crate our bikes up like how they come in from japan ship them to LA or wherever hire a covered in 8 tonne truck and go to bonneville for speedweek. i'm sure we could do it on the cheap. four of my mates who are dlra members show strong interest in going so we'd have crew.
was thinking to do it in august 2007.
what do you guys think.

Though i wouldn't mind going over for a ride, i think the budget would be lucky to even get me there for a look :lol:
Check this out Ben and try to imagine what the lane change at this speed would feel like in the dirt
