I could watch that shit all day and I love how calm he is - "At 165 I'm passing by and see my mates on the side holding up their pints.......ah the buggers"

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

I have said this before but there was a Vid of a cat on a GSXR 1K and part of the Vid had the GPS Map in the corner and the Digi read out of his gear and speed - It is truly amazing what these guys do

The real Irish road racing scene is just amazing. Its great what these guys do on public roads! you would think they would find more success on a actual track (not having to worry about poles, houses, animals etc..) but sadly that is not the case.

No fuckin way I would do that on a public road even if legal, i would die. I hurt myself just fine on the track without having to worry about real curbs LOL. These guys have balls like elephants and the skill to back it up.

Here's a long movie/documentary with Guy Martin. If you thought Rossi was charismatic, this guy takes the cake... Awesome dude.
