Michael Dunlop on the new Suzuki wins the Senior TT

By 13 seconds !!!!! Great intro for the new GSX-R1000.

Hope Hutchy heals quickly. Nasty spill on the mountain.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

I always knew this would be the case Ed......regarding Michael Dunlop (on a brand new unproven bike he delivers ..again!)

Unfortunately as usual Guy Martin failed.........He never has (or ever will) win a IOM TT race..... (except "Maybe" ??? On the one lap electric bike that has a field of 8 and only 2 bikes that have any chance of winning)

Yes I know the Honda Fireblade had many issues.....but he's had just about every other bike in the past..BMW's..,Suzuki's..,etc......

Forget it....it is Never gonna happen.!

Dunlop..,Hickman..,Hillier..,Hutchy....,Keene..,Ha rrison....et all are on the same track.

The racing is exciting but they need to stop racing the Isle of Mann TT. At least 4 riders died this year. There is no such thing as safety

George safety is paramount at the tt it is the weather that is the factor, it always bloody rains.

I am on the opposite side of the coin here, George.
Each rider knows that the TT is very dangerous and no one puts a gun to their head and says "go race the TT or I pull the trigger. It is an adult decision to go do a dangerous thing.

Just as it is each time you mount your F4. An adult decision to do a dangerous thing.

Let's see, if deaths per year are the measure...or let's say deaths per day, what would we be unable to do starting right now?

Shower comes to mind.
Swim.
Eat.

You get the point.

Check out the YouTube of Guy Martin interview after the off. Box full of neutrals. He looked shaken. I wouldn't be surprised if he takes a while to get back to a road race.
