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.
