Anyone interested I just saw an excellent motorcycle film on Netflix. Mostly covers World Superbike racing and Isle of Man TT racing.

Check out Speed is my need. What I found really interesting about the psyche of the motorcycle racer. Being an avid racer most of my life I found it really explained the racers personality and DNA. Enjoy

Two other shows are "Hitting the Apex" and "MotoGP". There is also a series on one of the streaming services that had 10 or 12 episodes narrated by Ewan McGregor one called "Faster" and one called "Fastest". "Fastest" is about Valentino Rossi.

I must have been crazy in my youth for racing WERA and Superbike. I can't imagine these MotoGP bikes. When I went from racing Motocross to track racing a triple two stroke Kaw H2 (when on the pipe, the bike had way more power then the frame or tires could handle so my motocross skills came in handy).

On another forum, a drag racer said circuit and road race bikes were "gay', I guess that makes the riders gay too?
I wonder if anyone would say that to McGuiness' face? Or any of the surviving Dunlops?

I don't know, I was always gay when I was on the circuit whether blasting down a straightaway, carving a corner (I think I might have had an orgasm the first time I went through the Corkscrew on my factory Superbike), and even when I came off my bike (when the chain broke and stopped the rear wheel dead just after shifting into top gear) at 120 MPH then sliding on the asphalt until hitting the infield and starting to go head over heels five times, I was still happy!

My question is where is the joy or skill in putting a huge motor between your legs for just 10 seconds? More like a promise of a great time but being only left with blue balls, awe its over already!

Had an H2 and 3. I feel your pain. Head wobble was horrible on those bikes. My RD350 and 400 handled way better than the Kawis , BUT were NOT as fast.

I like the use of the original meaning of gay. I too, feel gay when riding.
When I was spat off by a death wobble at around 120 k's I rely really gay when I found I had, literally, a scratch.
