The fastest mile

Words: Abhinav Mishra

It’s cold and the wind is making things even more uncomfortable. I’m, running around a casino’s parking lot in Nevada, looking for Triumph’s Infor Rocket Streamliner. Wait. I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me give you some background. I’ve been flown down all the way from Mumbai by the British manufacturer so I can witness them attempt to break the land speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats. After some time off to come to terms with the dreaded jet lag, I’ve been informed by the PR team that the Infor Rocket is ready for viewing. So, I’ve left the comfortable confines of my room to witness in flesh what could be the world’s fastest motorcycle. After some frantic hunting, I find the Infor in the most unassuming of settings – sitting in a non-descript container. Not quite what I expected.
