In 2004 BUB Racing, promoters of the BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials, made history by offering motorcyclists an opportunity to attempt land speed records at their own event that was tailored to the needs of motorcycles. Both the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) and the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) sanctioned the event and participated in the officiating of the World and National Records. An unprecedented 8 world records and 22 national records were set at the premier event.
In 2005, our first year, the 2nd Annual BUB Speed Trials were held. Participation increased, more records were broken, and participants were determined to go even faster. Staggering new speeds redefined the record books with 14 new world records and 32 national records broken. We have participated in the BUB Speed Trials ever since.
In 2010 OSRT finally beat the HTD diesel KLRs establishing us as the World’s Fastest KLR and we still hold that title today.
