Chasing Speed Leslie Porterfield

Chasing Speed airs sunday April 1st on Velocity TV. The show will follow Leslie Porterfield‘s attempt to take a stock 1000cc motorcycle over 200 miles per hour at Bonneville Salt Flats. The show will follow Leslie as she prepares to break two world records in her attempt to become the world’s fastest person on a motorcycle. She’s already the world’s fastest woman on a motorcycle.

In addition to racing Leslie is also the owner of High Five Cycles in Dallas, Texas. The show will feature her life on and off the salt flats and follow her to Wichita State University where she conducted wind tunnel testing and an airport in Athens Texas for actual speed testing on a runway.

Cori and I had the good fortune to meet Leslie at the Progressive Motorcycle Show in New York back in January and to sit in on the talk she gave there about what it’s like to race at Bonneville. This show looks interesting and we wish Leslie the best in her record attempts.

    Hi Bob,

    Couldn't agree more. Cori and I met her last January at the Progressive show in NY. Very friendly and genuine.

    Thanks for stopping by and for commenting.

    Met Leslie at Bonneville 2 years ago. She could not be any nicer. Wish her all the luck in her pursuit of more records. Don Vesco got me interested in Bonneville and she definitely has the bug like Don did.
