The pursuit of speed has driven many people to do innovative, bizarre, and potentially deadly things. So maybe it should come as no surprise that Alp Racing & Design took a Triumph motorcycle and transformed it into the rocket you see here. The L.A.-based outfit used a Triumph 650cc engine to start in its quest of 200 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats. They took that engine and transformed it from a machine that produces 33 horsepower to one that registers more than 150. The build took more than 1,500 hours to complete, as Alp Sungurtekin and company made a custom cylinder head and hand formed the tubing for the frame. That doesn’t even touch on the engine, which is now fuel cooled and features a total loss oil system. Record or no record, this bike will look good bombing down the flats.


Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
