Shawn Baer and Bonneville Performance Team at Lima

The Bonneville Performance Triumph flat track team's bikes sit in the pits at Lima in between the practice/qualifying sessions and the evening's main event. Team lead Bill Gately and rider Shawn Baer lead this entry this year into AMA Flat Track action and have now put the team into the last two Expert twins nationals finals (Springfield Mile and Lima.) This is another great entry into the Expert twins class that showcases a different formula to compete with the long and all conquering Harley XR750s. With some work look for the team to get this great looking bike dialed in and move further up in the standings.

One of the newer teams to contest the AMA Pro Flat Track/K&N Filters sponsored by series is the Bonneville Performance Triumph team campaigned by National #32 Shawn Baer and team head honcho Bill Gately. Missing the field at Prescott Valley in May by placing 8th in the semi, the team has put it in the finals at both the Springfield Mile and at Lima last week. Unfortunately, mechanicals have sidelined the team early in both finals, but look for them to come back strong as ever and work their way up in the standings with hard work--and some luck thrown in, as well.

Brett Noble over at has a race report filed by team lead Bill Gately here that gives some insight into the team's hard work and efforts. Check it out:

Also, thanks again to Brett for posting some more of my shots over at his super site. While at Lima last weekend I took some shots of the Bonneville Performance team and Brett was kind enough to put them up and showcase them on his great site. Check those out here and keep an eye on the #32 team as the try to contend against the deep competition in the series this year:
