So, what did we get for our efforts? A cool trophy, a certificate to validate our record, and a nice plaque. Aside from all that we took home of lifetime of memories. If you have never been to Bonneville you need to go. If you can somehow set a record, then do it!!!!

Here we are lining up for another run. From the left, Rich who is my brother and a big part of Sportsman Flyer, me probably wondering what I have got myself into, Shane of AGK who built out our motors, and Gunther who has ice water running through his veins. Gunther was so cool on the bike. Absolute confidence!
This is the entire team. Dorathy in the middle and that's Skip and Dave on the right. Skip was a big part of our testing and tuning efforts and Dave handled all the machining. Thanks team!

Has it really been a year since I have updated this section? Yes it has. I have plenty of excuses, like spending too much time on the computer and in the shop, but really, a whole year? The biggest news from 2012 was our trip to the Bonneville Salt Flats. With Sportsman Flyer as the manufacturer and Gunther Maier as our team rider we set a land speed record in the APF 175cc class at 73.526 mph. Not only that, we entered the course seven times, and with the exception of the first run which was a rookie pass required by the rules, we bettered the existing record and then our own record every pass down the stip.
