Klock Werks Beat The Clock
Four ladies were riding for Team Klock Werks at the Motorcycle Speed Trials by Bub on the Bonneville Salt Flats this year. Team Klock Werks came back with five new national land speed records! Laura Klock defended the “World’s Fastest Bagger” record, and her daughters Erika 17, and Karlee 14, joined her as record holders on their own bikes, making the trio the first mother-daughter-daughter in history to set land speed records in the same year at the same event. Laura set a new record aboard the WFB with a speed of 153.592 mph. Erika rode a 1995 Buell S2 and set a new land speed record on the Buell #455 in the P-PP 1350 class at 130.392 mph. As the youngest female participant, Karlee rode the Buell Blast that Erika piloted in 2007, which means that she went after her older sister’s record. Karlee not only broke the old record on the Buell Blast #3333 (110.724 mph in class MPS-PG500), she also set an additional record by running the bike in another class by removing the fairing (107.391 in class M-PG 500). Also new to the Klock Werks team was Michelle Mielke, who is the wife of Klock Werks service manager, Joe Mielke. Michelle was riding her 2000 Yamaha V-Star 650 bike #415 in M-P 650 and set a land speed record of 102.1 mph.
