In the month of August every year, motor cycling enthusiasts and petrol heads from across the globe converge at the legendary salt flats of Bonneville. A week filled with excitement, camaraderie, and burnt rubber on one of the most unique surfaces on the planet. 2014 marks a special occasion for Royal Enfield on these hallowed grounds, as ace performance tuner Matt Capri brings two specially modified Continental GTs to the land of salt. The Continental GT is an ideal choice for the master of performance tuning to work his magic, due to the simplicity and customization potential of the machine's setup. Bonneville promises to be a festival of automotive and engineering brilliance with some of the most diverse automobiles on two and four wheels from all over the world.

Matt Capri adds the finishing touches to his customized Continental GT's as rider Nadine de Frietas prepares for the run. The final fairing and modifications, customized to fit Nadine, have been fitted on the motorcycles and they are prepared for the Burn-Up!
