Me and a Few good friends of mine were bored the other day so we drove out to the Salt Flats. None of us have ever been, So we didn't know what to expect. We got out there and it was almost an indescribably feeling When you leave the asphalt and touch the salt. Everything Changes. There is no Quarter mile that comes to an end nor a track to that confines you to the road. its miles and miles of no Limitation. The flats is the edge of Motor head freedom. When we got out there it was just us and the salt, nothing else mattered. For us it wasn't about cars anymore it was a bunch of friends having fun. if you haven't been I urge you to go before the winter its an Amazing place. <br><B>Volvo Strong!</B> <br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/VolvoStrong.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/MeandRob.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/TheSign.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSC_2225.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSC_2254.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSC_2289.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSC_2327.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSC_2310.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSC_2233.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/AnthonyandRob.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSC_2433.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSC_2321.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSC_2449.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSC_2243.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSC_2244.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSC_2265.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSC_2237.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSC_2452.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSC_2237.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f37/RicePicker84015/DSCN2805.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><B>Here is a very interesting person she came out of nowhere. came up asked us to video record her hitting top speed on here 1200cc BMW fro here husband. she hit 170mph and on the flats that is amazing!

That is an awesome vid. Its kind of funny, I lived here almost my whole life and have never been out to the salt flats. I for sure want to head out there sometime. Looks like a blast. And your exhaust sounds really good. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

We topped out at about 25mph on this trip, but the scenery is similar! White Sands, NM. Got to sled down the dunes.<p><IMG SRC="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_LbpSxwgerDQ/Smjeowy4JWI/AAAAAAAAE_c/mAxEhrfe5hE/s800/P7220032.JPG" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_LbpSxwgerDQ/SmjeqlFyYuI/AAAAAAAAE_w/oG2WvI2l7IM/s800/P7220061.JPG" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_LbpSxwgerDQ/SmjerOgK4wI/AAAAAAAAE_0/KGnShr_GcSg/s640/P7220072.JPG" BORDER="0">
