Guy Martin and Triumphs Land Speed Attempt

Youles Motorcycles customer Frank was lucky enough to go out to Bonneville Salt Flats to watch Guy Martin’s land speed attempts on Triumphs streamliner special.

These photos were taken on Sat Morning 17th Sept. Frank said “Guy had completed a 175mph run after the first attempt which ended with him going over on to the right hand side of the bike. You can see the damage to the decals. The final run on Sunday 18th ended with the same, the bike lost grip on hard acceleration to 9500 revs, resulting in damage to the rear swing arm, and of course the decal damage !!!”.

Disappointing for Guy and Triumph but sounds like a fantastic trip for Frank.

Thanks for the piccys Frank!
