I'm leaving August 15th, and riding down the coast on 101/Hwy1 straight to the Golden Gate, then all the way to Big Sur.
But on the way home, I am hoping to catch Triumph attempt their world speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover, UT. Hoping they would announce dates soon so I could spectate. I've been reading high and low, and it looks like it will take place between August 22-28.
Who wants to throw the dice, and see if they can watch the attempt? There is no guarantee, but it's a worthwhile gamble to witness a potentially historic event. And besides, the salt flats are pretty cool.
