Gentlemen, i give you a true hero........

Hi

Gentlemen i give you a true hero...............

Follow this link, watch the video and get down on your collective knees to pray to the motorcycling god who rode (The Isle of Man, public roads) his Fireblade on it.....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UDrX_3coqM

I have a confession, i have never been, cannot now and never will be able to ride a motorcycle like this.

This is why the arguments about which 1000cc bike is the best are utterly pointless, this man (deity, surely) could outride me on my 06 ZX10R on a 650 Burgman scooter!!! I feel humbled when i watch this

We are not worthy, big up to ya, you are my hero............

The bitter Limey

PS The Fireblade is for sale, one carefull lady owner, never raced, crashed, bashed or abused (only kidding folks)

I won't call him a hero.

But he's certainly got a brass set of balls.

Hi

Sorry if it isnt clear, but this is perfectly legal on the Isle of Man.

No laws were broken in the making of this video.

Re: Gentlemen, i give you a true hero........

We all realize this.

A hero is someone who risks his life for another person in my book.

So while he's quite brave to ride around that place at speed, he's no hero.

Welcome to the site.

Welcome to the site.
Thank you for your warm reception

My dictionary defines a hero, amongst other things as "a man who is idealised for possessing superior qualities in any field", or "a man distinguished by exceptional courage, etc"

I agree with your definition, but do feel the title is apt based on these.

Hey, I figured you were already a bitter limey, why fake it just for a welcome?

Hero? possibly - but that guy possesses riding skills like I've never seen before! I couldn't imagine going that fast on streets that narrow!
Absolutely amazing!!!

Re: Gentlemen, i give you a true hero........

Dude was the sound way off in that video or was it just me? Good stuff. I don't think near as fast as the guys who race the TT but good riding non the less.

I was thinking the same thing. Must be fairly uncomfortable riding like that.

A truly awesome vid - Mariah Carey does a good version of Hero - goes well as a soundtrack...
