Leslie Poterfield Has Made It Into The Guinness World Records Book

Since March 12, Leslie Poterfield is now listed as the Fastest Woman in the World on a Motorcycle. She won the honor for reaching 232.522 mph during the last BUB Bonneville Salt Flats trials, riding a 2000 cc turbo-charged Suzuki Hayabusa.  It takes time for the FIM (International Federation Of Motorcycling) to officialize a record, and even more so for the Guinness Book to publish. And now, Leslie has for new objective to be the fastest person in the world and is already preparing for it.  She will be in May at El Mirage, California and of course on the Salts of Utah in August for a new world record tentative. I will be in Bonneville and hope to witness it. Leslie operates a motorcycle dealership in Texas called High Five Cycles where she is also a Foremost Insurance agent.

    I met this lovely lady several years ago when a group of us, including Joe Martin, were riding the Hill Country of Texas for a week while filming a pilot for a TV special. She told us then she had big plans for Bonneville. We all wished her the best knowing that if anyone could make it, Leslie would be the one. She proved that by the way she put the hurt on all us Harley guys with her skills aboard her Ducati. Congrats Leslie.
