Latus Motors, Portland, Oregon

 Enjoying some beautiful Fall weather in Portland. Latus Motors is right around the corner , so I always try to visit when I'm here. George Latus is a real racer and supports GNC Racing with his Latus / Castrol / Triumph Team with National #44 Brandon Robinson doing a fantastic job on what is one of two Factory Triumphs. In the Triumph Showroom there is a big window that looks right into the racing dept where the #44 is being prepared. Latus have been a Harley dealer for ever in Portland and the shop is sprinkled with some fine racing equipment on display.

The Castrol Rocket land speed record machine is housed here also. Bonneville was rained out recently and their new Pilot, Guy Martin came off in an Irish Road Race and banged himself up pretty good so, maybe next year it will all come together for all parties and they can get the motorcycle record.
