Salt in the Air

Posted on 07 Aug 2012 in Events, Shop News | 0 comments


When the air is hot & dry, with water supply scarce, it’s usually that time of year for high octane fuel, high altitude, and record breaking land speed racing at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. Speedweek is coming up in just a few days.

I try to make it out to Bonneville at least once a year since my first time about six years ago. I was amazed then, and continue to be amazed every year at how many extraordinary cars, bikes and people show up at this event. I simply love and enjoy everything about it.

To get to my point, I’m extra fortunate to get some time away from the shop — to escape our busy schedule for the weekend and participate in the everlasting ritual of paying respect to the gods of speed. Because I’ll be out of town, parts service will be on hold for a few days while I’m away. However, BlueCat Motors will still be open during regular business hours. So don’t hesitate to call the shop with questions or comments pertaining to your motorcycling needs. Leave your parts requests with the guys and we’ll get you taken care of.

If you happen to be at the Bonneville Salt Flats during Speedweek, and spot a couple goofy looking guys flying the Bluecat Motors logo on some shirts, please spark the conversation and say hi. I’ll have some limited release Bluecat merch with me to give away and will be more than happy to answer any questions you may fancy. See you on the salt!
