Joey Dunlop's Honda

The great Joe Dunlop's Honda. I was shocked to find out that the average speed for the TT is now in excess of 130mph, and the top recorded speed ‘was’ 206mph. It takes real courage to ride at those speeds with no run offs and with dry-stone walls and buildings lining the course. Joe tragically died in Estonia in 2000 while leading a 125cc race. I think he has more TT wins than anyone else. He sure was a hero.
