Very cool, thanks for posting. The #11 Suzuki with flames coming out of the exhaust under deceleration gives a new meaning to the decel pop concern of stock KLR's.

That was cool to watch. Another thanks for posting it.

Back in the primitive days when I was a kid, there was no motorcycle racing on network TV where I lived. Maybe, just maybe, once a year or so they might feature some kind of race on ABC's Wide World Of Sports.

My older brother had a 45rpm record that was nothing but the sounds of motorcycle engines at the Isle Of Man race. I'd forgotten about that for 40 years or so until you posted this. I can still see the picture of the motorcycle on the paper sleeve that held the record.

Man, no kidding! I missed that. I've never been a rider of high-performance machines, but even I appreciate that skill and guts.

Here is an on board view of one entire lap. The speeds these guys are going is insane. Quite the contrast from the slow motion video.
