BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials 2010 Day 5...

The last day of the Speed Trials everyone was scrambling to try to get their last runs in to try and make their speeds.
Some people made it and some didn`t,consoling themselves with the fact that next year was only 361 days away...........
In fact Max Lambky on his website Vincent Streamliner has a BUB countdown clock to let us all know how many months,days,hours,minutes and seconds are left `till BUB.For some it`s the highlight of their year,and with the experiences i`ve had and the wonderfull people i`ve met at BUB 2010,it`s no wonder why it`s top of these LSR Racers "To Do" list.
I`m going to finish up with a collection of pictures of bikes and people from the whole event,and give a big thank you to Bud Schmitt for giving me the Crew Chief position,a big hello to all the folks that I met throughout the event who were gracious enough to give me their time for pictures and in some cases interviews,and to all the people who continue to follow me on this Blog,thanks for staying on and see you all next year at BUB 2011.


I`ll start off with this absolutely gorgeous Turbo Indian(did I mention I have a thing for `em)?.The lines,the colors,the stance,that low tuck position,I was drawn back,nay sucked in to photograph this bike all thru the event..................I`m in Love...................again.
