A privately registered Piper PA18-150 Super Cub, recently purchased by the pilot, was performing high speed taxi trials on a private grass airstrip near Alkali Lake without the intention to fly.

The pilot was wearing the seat belt restraint system with shoulder harness; he egressed the inverted airplane without injury. The 406 ELT signal was triggered and the pilot responded to the Joint Rescue Coordination Center inquiry.
