Amazing. Well worth the 18 or so minutes. Heading into turns at 180mph? That is insane on a road race. Thanks.

I have watched this video three times since yesterday. It hasn't lost it's impressiveness.

David Jeffries, the rider in the video, was killed in 2003 during a Thursday afternoon practice lap. I believe his engine gave way while he was flat out, and he took out a telephone pole and a bus shelter. Age 30 when he passed, he was picked by many to be a future giant of racing, let alone the TT, which he was one of but a few with triple wins in one year multiple times at Isle of Man TT. His Honda was featured one time years ago in a bike magazine. It showed how after a race, his pegs would be bent all the way back due to his putting his ENTIRE weight on them.

From Wikkipedia

Jefferies competed in a range of racing classes including the Isle of Man TT. In 2002, Jefferies set the absolute lap record for the Isle of Man TT course.

He was killed in 2003 while racing a Suzuki GSX-R1000 for the newly formed TAS Suzuki team at the Isle of Man. Jefferies died during practice for the Senior TT after hitting oil on the course from a competitor's malfunctioning bike. Track marshals failed to provide adequate warning, namely by failing to wave an oil flag, for the approaching Jefferies and Jim Moodie. He crashed at Crosby at approximately 160mph (257 km/h). Moodie was seriously injured but survived. The parade lap in honour of Jefferies took place at the end of the TT weekend where thousands of bikes took part, filling the 37 mile course.
