We are in the middle of the Isle of Man TT races here at the moment. One of the great things is you get to ride the course, and the added bonus that there is no speed limit over the very fast mountain section. It's not been warm this year, maybe only 58 F, so view the link below and watch a fireblade rider ride the mountain, with a difference .. The only tenuous link to the site is that his companion filming is on a Daytona 675. Manx police are unsure if they can procecute him, as he was wearing a helmet, boots and gloves ...

It appears the police will have little to work with and only a small chance of arresting the culprit. They're obviously short on clues. I wonder if the rider felt embareassed?

At first I thought that there was a flasher at the beginning - for some reason Brits seem to like to flash at many sporting events - then I discovered that this guy was the rider.

Must admit this guy has a lot of confidense to ride naked - one fall and...

Lastly, I thought the U.K. had gone metric, but the speedo on the Triumph is in m.p.h. not k.p.h. You still mark roads in miles and speed in m.p.h.?

Yup, UK is and has been a mixed bag since 'afore I left there

Metric for fuel and English for miles travelled and miles per hour, metric for your 2 kilo's of sliced ham, though why do I feel last year I saw miles travelled and kilometres travelled signs up in Scotland????

Was he taking a bathroom break at the end there? Sure makes the process a lot easier with no gear. :D

Is 128mph as fast as a 675 goes, or as fast as he would go on a 675? Any one know when the races will be on USA tv? HDNET channel ran them last year, and is rerunning 2010 races now....tomp

I think this has gone a bit beyond our PG13 criteria.
