The TT test strength and nerve like no other race... if the highest aim of a
rider were to preserve life he would keep his body home sipping tea...

“I’m pleased to say that Guy Martin has been talking to us throughout his treatment in A&E at Noble’s Hospital. He has bruising to both lungs and some minor fractures in his upper spine, but is otherwise well.”

Really sucks, one of my favorite racing personalities -- actually, "characters" would be the better term.

And I thought only the RC51 and R6 went Zippo when they crashed.

thats a very trick factory kit HRC bike there(about 150,000 dollars at least)
What makes you say that? Not doubting it's got some very trick parts. But the Wilson Craig team hasn't been known as equal to HM Plant in financial ability.

he is well connected(makes engines for HM plant-yes the rider)

the forks are the latest 2008 HRC works items(only for a few selected JSB,BSB and a few others-the internals are very trick,stantions are 43mm down from 45mm from the earlier models(which I have sold before)

Calipers look like Akebono(used by a few HRC works connected teams)please see the link below(need to see other photos,but the calipers design looks different to brembo and Nissin-but hard to see)
just my guess-could be wrong(edit,believe they are new design brembo monoblocs)

radiator is a works item or similar
of course al the engine parts,alloy tank,HRC cowling(made by my friend at Uchida in Saitama)is worth maybe 100,000 in parts alone
Please check the HRC kits parts manual(but the cowling etc is only available from HRC HQ,so no retail unless you are a factory connected team

typical marchesini wheels and rotors
but it's an expensive piece of machinery.from Hydrex or HM plant
