THE WORLD’s FASTEST STREET LEGAL BAGGER 2017 RULES
- The bike has to be a bagger, a true bagger not a Softail, Dyna, or anything else you can install bags on. Just because you put bags on a bike does not make it a bagger. Putting lipstick on a pig does not change that it is still a pig.
- The bike must have a FL frame, no exceptions.
- The bike must be truly aspirated, no Turbos, no Prochargers, no nitrous.
- You must register at https://www.roadskulls.com under WFSLB tab, and you must register for Bonneville on their site using the code WFSLB during registration for special pricing for this race
To be considered for the Title of the World’s Fastest Street Legal Bagger, the bike will have to compete to prove it, as dyno chart will not be sufficient. The competition consists of riding the motorcycle from one destination point to a final destination that will conclude with racing the motorcycle for top speed at an event.
The bagger must be truly aspirated for the 2017 race. There is no motor size restriction, however, the frame must be a stock FL frame (not altered). The bike must be running original size saddles bags at minimum and the bags must be able to be filled with riding apparel. Bags filled with amps, speakers, and air ride cylinders will not be considered, if you cannot fill your bags with riding apparel that means you do not ride your bike you trailer it.
Rules and regulations to race at Bonneville can be found on the Bonneville Speed Trials website: https://bonnevillespeedtrials.com under the rules and regulations tab, there you will see all the rules and regulations for 2017. Each participant is responsible for paying their entry fees through Bonneville Speed Trials and must meet all requirements in the rules and regulations. This competition is not responsible for any disputes over inspections and or speeds, this is all being conducted through the Bonneville Speed Trials. We will just be going off the speed slips at the track, and travel times from destination.
The World’s Fastest Street Legal Bagger competition for 2017 will start in Las Vegas. Each participant will meet at a certain location (to be determined), and check in their bikes. Each bike must be able to carry a certain amount of items on their bike, as any stock bike would be able to hold. These items are still to be determined, but could include such items as, chaps, leather jacket, gloves, rain gear, water bottles…etc (these items do not need to be ridden with, just showing the capabilities of carrying the items). Each motorcycle must have a working speedometer with an odometer. Mileage will be monitored, first with a picture of the odometers starting miles, secondly, the participant must take a picture of the odometer and receipt (receipt must have address of gas station on it) together at each fuel stop, and the final will be pictured at the racing event check in point (front gate where wristbands are given).
There are several different ways to reach the final destination, just as long as the pictured odometer and receipts add up to the routes taken you are good. We are using google maps for the mileage and times to destination for our points system, which we will explain. If Google maps have two routes to get to a destination, the shortest time will be the base point, and the longest time will be the max time. For instance from Las Vegas to Bonneville there are two routes it chooses, the shortest is 372 miles in 5hrs 41mins, and the longest time is 540 miles in 7hrs 32mins. Each participant starts with zero points, and will receive points per their time, the time between 5hrs 41mins – 7hrs 32mins will be worth zero points. Anything ahead of 5hrs 41mins, will be awarded points, 1pt for each minute ahead of schedule, and punished 1pt per minute over the max time. Once at the race event the rider will be awarded 1pt for every mph over 100 for each run completed. The points they earn here is all up to how well their bike performs, and how many times they can run the bike down the mile. A bike that runs only five times may not win to the bike that is slower but runs 7 times. Each contestant must run his or her bike at least five times, if they cannot meet the requirement they cannot be considered for the World’s Fastest Street Legal Bagger. The point of the competition is to see who has the most reliable best-built combination for longevity. If something goes wrong with the bike fix it, there is plenty of time to complete five runs in an all-week event, if it is not fixable at the track it will not be considered for the title. The fastest bike with the top speed might not take the title home if his or her engine blows and is not able to complete the runs required.
This year’s event will be held on August 26, leaving Las Vegas at 6am. The races will not start until August 27, the bike must pass inspection and rider must attend a riders meeting, from there run the bike as many times as you would like.
This competition will run as long as the weather and salt conditions allow for. This will all be determined by Bonneville Speed Trials, they are the ones that determine if conditions are satisfactory to race.
