Of course I'm generalizing from a single example here, but everyone does that. At least I do.

An interview with Guy Martin, one of the Isle of Man Suzuki riders is below.

His favorite track bike is a 750 Suzuki frame with a 300 horsepower engine.

If he had a street bike, he says it would be an oil leaking antique. My thinking is the 1936 Harley Knucklehead (modern copy- the 600cc Honda Shadow) or the 1969 Triumph Bonneville (modern copy- the Yamaha XS650) are still popular, or something rarer like the Vincent Black Shadow:



“Do…not waste time protesting the self-inflated showmen and bloviating bullshitters who populate our culture. It’s more fun to marvel at them, to appreciate them, to be grateful for them, and to mock them relentlessly. ”-from the 2010 book American Freak Show by Willie Geist. "He wondered what difference any of it would make two hundred years from now." -from the book Cyclops by Clive Cussler.

Is that why he was racing a CBR1000RR last year?

This is worth the read:

jalopnik.com/5931270/why-the-worlds-deadliest-race-could-never-happen-again

I was wondering if anyone has killed themselves/killed anyone doing this. It turns out that a shit-ton have.

That open track day where anyone with a bike can go out on it sounds sketchy as hell.

Like most racers, Guy Martin sometimes switches to different teams.

From Wikipedia: In 2006 Martin raced for Alistair Flanagan's AIM Yamaha race team.

Hydrex Honda secured Martin's signature for the 2007 season.

The end of 2009 saw Martin leave Hydrex for Wilson Craig Honda.

In November 2010 Martin was signed by Relentless Suzuki.

In 2012, Martin resumed his ride with the factory Tyco Suzuki squad.
