Isle of Man TT Motorcycle Race

Guy Martin on a Suzuki GSXR 1000 Superbike going around the course.

Stu put up a post and I've kind of been paying attention. It's been going on for the last two weeks. 200 MPH on a motorcycle on an ordinary road is kind of impressive. This might be the last real road race for bikes in the world, well, at least until the 3rd world gets into the act. I've watched several videos, and this is the one I like best. He doesn't actually manage to outrun the chopper, but the camera does lose track of him for a few seconds. Bonus is that nobody dies in this video. I don't like watching the ones with the bad accidents. Seeming them once was enough.

Martin AVERAGES 120 mph on public roads.

BTW: You can see balding old me in 2011 in my orange marshal's jacket at 3:30-3:41 by a happy coincidence :-)
