Bonneville Salt Flats
I have had the opportunity to go to the BUB Motorcycle Speed trials at the salt flats on two occasions. Both times it was great to see the spirit of motorcycling in action. I had no idea that there was water underneath and that the salt was just a crust on top. It can be as hard as concrete or as fine as…well salt. Everyone takes the conditions in stride, I rode through a salt storm one year and it felt like I wasn’t moving. The race is amazing, no attitudes, no posturing just trying to make a motorcycle go as fast as possible. It is a surreal place with feeling of infinite desolation and wonder that is worth the visit.
