ROCKET MAN

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week in Mcn -

If it were pos­si­ble to re­lease speed from noth­ing but good­will and the de­sire to suc­ceed, then Guy Martin would have been pi­lot­ing Tri­umph’s In­for Rocket Stream­liner over the world-fa­mous white­ness of the Bon­neville Salt Flats at well be­yond 400mph over the week­end. But life is rarely that gen­er­ous.

In­clement weather, poor salt con­di­tions and a car­bon fi­bre cigar that was per­sis­tently be­set with prob­lems made for a tor­tur­ous week un­der the full glare of the Utah sun­shine. MCN was there to wit­ness the salty nut­ti­ness first hand.
