It should be a great day for a ride, plenty of food and drinks, music, giveaways and more! Remember, someone is taking home a fully rebuilt 1952 Panhead engine! We also couldn't do it without the help of Harley-Davidson, Pabst, Street Chopper, and Law Tigers. See you soon and repost!
Fellow Redliner Bill Anderson has been verbally abusing me lately about having not ever put up my personal race results from Bonneville Speed Week 2013 on my dual engine 1955 Triumph, Double Vision.
Speed Week 2013 was almost a perfect week, with a top speed of almost 153 mph and smashing two records. An APS-VG big twin flathead record of 128.241 was upped to 140.210 mph, and I continued gearing taller and tuning and upped an APS-VF Knucklehead record of 135.438 was upped to 151.448 mph. I qualified for a third record but had to pull out on the back-up record run due to salt clogging the main jet in one of my carburetors. I aim to break 160 mph on gasoline in 2014.
Double Vision toured the USA with Triumph Motorcycles, going to all the IMS Motorcycle Shows. Now back in my care, I am just beginning work to make changes to result in higher speeds for 2014, so stay tuned for updates!
I'll give you a hint... The top photo was an original photo taken by me, edited by me, watermarked by me, and posted on my site here. The bottom photo was copied, cropped, and posted here. The cropping to deliberately remove the watermark bothers me much more than someone else finding the sticker cool and wanting to re-post it.
