BACK FROM THE SALT
Bikernet's Ray C. Wheeler and me were fortunate
enough to hang out with
the Valerie Thompson Racing Team
with excitement as she rode her way to a personal best ride of 201.01
We also had a great week hanging around with some of the best and
heads in the world. The racing was world class and fast.
The weather cooperative with only one afternoon of racing cancelled
to wind gusts. Here are a few photos to give you a feel for the fun and
excitement we had.

her next speed run at mile zero.

Valerie took time to meet with everyone who came by despite
being under the stress of performance.
our own team this year, we are constantly scouting for experienced riders
with the potential for racing greatness. We are
already working on our 2012 strategy & sponsorship
options and do
expect to run a winning racing team at Bonneville next year.

Keith Ball, is drawing up fast bike plans
as you read this post. Ray C.
Wheeler is expected to run one of our turbo V-Twin powerhouses.
good chance we'll run a 1948 Harley Davidson Flathead and another yet
to be determined super-fast bike.
