Dan Holmes hurt in bicycle accident

Dan Holmes, head of the Bonneville Bullet team that set records for Royal Enfield this month on the Salt Flats in Utah, was injured Friday in a serious bicycle accident.

Holmes' teammate Phil Myers posted this message Saturday morning:

"On Friday 9/26 Dan has been involved in a bicycle accident. I have no details from the scene yet but he is fairly banged up and had to be airlifted to a major hospital in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. All I know is from a very brief email I received from his wife Connie at 3 am Saturday. Please keep him in your prayers. This is not going to an easy recovery. I'll try to keep all of you updated as I find out more. Phil"


  1. bullet 500 standard is not starting with the kickstarter in the very morning but starts with self switch and then stop again I start with kick 20 times and it starts, what is the reason.

    1. I'm sorry, there is no way to diagnose it at this distance. It could be any of many factors.
