It's official: Royal Enfield team sets three speed records at Bonneville Salt Flats

It's official. Dan Holmes Bonneville Bullet team has put three world records in the books for Royal Enfield at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. Kevin Mahoney of Classic Motorworks reports that the team was only disappointed that time ran out Friday before more record attempts could be made.

"We passed tech which meant that our records were official and went into the record books. The pall that settled over the team did not last long. We all sat in our pit and started to plan for next year. The cold Coronas didn’t hurt either," he writes.

Kevin's report goes on to give credit to all who contributed to the record making attempt, especially Bob Hutchinson, owner and founder of the Wireless Industry Association and founder of the Classic Motorcycles Association.

Best of all, Kevin reports the team plans to return next year and run faster still.
