Going to Miller? Here’s your chance to demo the latest Triumph motorcycles during the 6th Annual Bonneville Vintage GP, sponsored by Motorcycle Classics, Sept. 2-4, 2011. Triumph Motorcycles is bringing a semi full of the latest models, all you need to bring is a valid license and your riding gear! Plus, Australian team World’s Fastest Velocette plans to show off their 700cc Venom single, fresh from running at the BUB Speed Trials, at the Motorcycle Classics Vintage Motorcycle Show.

The Triumph demo fleet should provide a great boost to the always excellent Bonneville Vintage GP, encouraging bike fans from the Salt Lake City area to head to Miller Motorsports Park in nearby Tooele. The demo fleet is being made possible thanks to BMW/Triumph of Salt Lake. And as long as they don’t run into any major problems, like say grenading their engine blasting across the Bonneville Salt Flats, the Aussie Velocette team plans on showing off their wild record-seeking 700cc 1959 Velocette Venom single (they're hoping to break 150mph on the flats) at the Motorcycle Classics Vintage Motorcycle Show on Saturday at the Bonneville Vintage GP.

Registration for the show starts at 8 a.m. Saturday, with the show starting at 10 a.m. and an awards ceremony starting at 4:30 p.m. BMW is the featured marque for this year’s show, and there will be awards in six categories, plus the popular People’s Choice award.
