Triumph postpones land speed record attempt

The current two-wheel land speed record stands at 376.36mph (605.69kmph), and it is this record that Triumph intended to break at the Bonneville Salt Flats earlier this month. The weapon of choice was the Triumph Streamliner, and the daredevil at whose hands the record attempt was to be made, was motorcycle road racer, Guy Martin, of Isle of Man fame. Triumph planned on reaching a speed of 400mph (640kmph) in the Matt Markstaller designed Streamliner.
