WOW!! ... Phew!!

That was exhausting! But truly exhilarating! Many thanks for sharing, Chris 馃憤

Not being a biker myself I have always been in awe of those guys, at those speeds, on those roads...馃槻

PS: What is the gear lever connected to? Is it a gear/clutch actuator? Or a throttle interconnection? 馃

Fab stuff!!

Ha Ha Kev....glad you liked it. 馃榿

I'd think it's a quick shifter of some description Kev (never used or seen one myself) although he seems to change down himself, the upshift don't use the clutch (I don't often use the clutch on my bikes) as it's easy to match the revs for a smooth change.
And I'd think he's enough to think about at 180 +mph! 馃が....or it's easier to use a button when hanging on for grim death! :eek:

Yes Kev not abnormal is flames shooting from the exhausts!....

And is quite normal unlike the 'numpties' round our way with the 'popping/banging' exhausts...If it needed it all the racers would be doing it! 馃榿 (y)

I am so sorry to see this, Chris 馃檨
Yes Kev, sadly the TT has claimed lives and will continue I suppose and while not everyone is in its favour bike racers know the risks....馃樁

These are technically road bikes without lights, so more about talent than having the best machine! 馃槏
