Joey Dunlop's Statue (Joey's perspective)

Many have seen photos of Joey Dunlop's statue showing him sitting on his RC51.
But that photo is us looking at him.
But what is Joey looking at?

This is what the spirit of Joey is gazing lovingly upon (and I like that view).

Even when the race is not on, there are no speed limits on the island. Go as fast as you want on the country roads and over the mountain. You do need to slow down for the built up villages though.

You have nothing to worry about since you have had your bollocks cut off....keep the overtaking lane clear please.


That is definitely a bucket list picture.

Cheeky bugger! You keep your bike so pristine and ride it so slow, insects don't even stick to your fairings. They just slide off.

So what you're saying is: Don't buy a used RC from Isle of Man?!
