I was presented with an incredible opportunity this fall. Leon Stanley from Badger Corse invited yours truly to pilot his Royal Enfield down the runway at the East Coast Timing Association event in Wilmington Ohio. LSR is something I've dreamed of doing ever since I was a kid and saw that picture of Rollie Free riding his Vincent at Bonneville. Leons Enfield is a heavily worked 500cc single that has campaigned in road racing, flat tracking and most recently, speed trials. Best of all, when it's not in one of it's various race forms, the "badger" as leon calls his bike, serves as a daily rider. I am thrilled to be apart of this project - but I can't give too much away as there will be a video online soon, documenting the bikes journey. In the mean time, here are some visuals from the race.
