    Footage of Michael Dunlop doing a 100mph lap from a standing start on the bike that Bob Mcintyre did the first 100mph lap in the Isle of Man.

    Doing that in a vintage helmet takes balls. I'd surely have worn a modern helmet.

    I'm surprised he was allowed to wear a pudding basin, they haven't been allowed on racetracks in the UK since 1971. But the IOM isn't the UK and they have their own rules.

    Does it even matter? To paraphrase Jerry Seinfeld, when you're racing around the Isle of Man, the helmet is wearing you for protection. :D

    Steeltoe What's my move?

    I forgot Classic TT was going on.
     
  9. Danny Webb said those old bikes and tires are like riding a modern bike with rims that have spaghetti for spokes and silly putty for tires. The brakes are like the flinstones, said as soon as you get on the gas you might as well start braking as well :) tons of respect for guys that can haul the mail on those old things.

    Come to think of it, maybe you're right. They should have posted a video of his mouth struggling to stay closed at speed lol. Anyways, that's a badass vid.
