The Team have been out on some very rough tracks and paths with myself looking after a little 125cc Honda which has proven to be remarkably forgiving of my many tumbles and novice-wipeouts. No bones broken yet thank goodness and I do seem to be improving slightly in terms of balance and ability, . . . and I hope the flooding situation at Bonneville improves too because for a second consecutive year Bonneville Speed Week has been cancelled by organisers due to the problem of flooding on the salt. I do hope that everything will be dry for 2016 as Utah is a long way to travel for another short notice cancellation.
the trail bikes are certainly a good way to physically fit-up for Bonneville because the combination of altitude, heat and rough salt surface, and I do mean rough (like a chip-gravel drive-way), makes the salt tracks during Speed Week rather skiddy so thank goodness it's all in a (relatively) straight line for the runs.
Chris has started his own Blogspot called Bonneville2016 and I hope you will go across to view his on-going blog as he introduces a lot more detailed technical information than I can.
