Long Course Run for GSXR 1000 at Bonneville Salt Flats
Some photos tell their own story, and with one look that photo itself can define speed. Paul Livingston of Falkner Livingston Racing was going just under 195 mph on the long course at Bonneville Salt Flats when a lens captured the motorcyclists doing what he loves at the World Speed Finals.

“Between 120 and 130 mph you can hear the engine,” said Livingston. “After 130 mph the only thing you hear is wind.” The white salt shines under the bikes at Bonneville and reflect 11,000 foot mountain peaks.
Livingston took his 2007 GSXR 1000 to the short course first. “I had to get a sticker that qualified me for the long course,” he said. “On the first run I went 180 mph. That did it.” The Bonneville Salt Flats are the perfect stage for high speed racers who have one goal, to set the fastest land speed record in their class.
“I qualified for the record twice,” said Livingston. “On the third run a strong head wind pushed me too hard. The bike was going as fast as it was going to go, but it wasn't enough.”
The Falkner Livingston Team uses K&N Engineering Products on its team motorcycles. “In the dry and salty conditions at the Flats, K&N Filters are a huge part of making our motorcycles run well,” said Livingston. “When you’re building a motorcycle to run over 200 mph, each and every part on the bike is critical, that is why we rely on K&N Oil and Air Filters.”
Next up for Falkner Livingston is the Baja 1000.
