This is the only reason I would take up club racing...so I could go race this. I don't care if I win or lose, just to say I ran it. What a place.

Flash to the year 2010. kpaul wins the Man TT on a the new Honda 800 cc V-4..."I couldn't have done it without the superior aerodynamics associated with the narrow profile of the V-4 along with Honda's ABS, Traction Control, and new integrated Shoei/Honda-Link Heads up display and communications link " kpaul went on to thank his personal coach Matt Mladin and mentor John C. Burns. kpaul also mentioned the new book authored by Gabe Ets-Hokin and with photos by Motorcycle Online photographer Fonzie. The book is a biography of kpaul titled "kpaul-The Great Motorcycle Prophet: The GTPB was wrong and kpaul was right" [i]kpaul after a long and respected career in the aerospace industry purchased MO while it was in bankruptcy.... MO now along with its two sister sites Harley-Online and Scooters Online... is now the most successful site of it's type in the world. kpaul's next challenge he said was to win the Daytona 200..

I visited the Isle in '89. What an experience. I was a serviceman stationed in Germany at the time, strapped for cash, so I camped out for 2 weeks.



That was one of the finest experiences of my life. Go if you can, any way possible.



I ran into another American who did everything by phone (a big deal in '89!) including renting a bike, so nothing's impossible.



IOM makes Daytona look like a backyard BBQ.
